Strengthen And Tone Your Legs With Gliding Discs Or Towels



I love working my legs with the Gliding Discs.  You can do lunges with these and most people do not have knee pain when using the discs.  If you do not have the discs, you can use hand towels or frisbees, depending upon your workout surface.  If your floor is carpeted, then you will need the plastic discs or frisbees to perform the exercise.  For wood or tile floors, then get the discs for that surface or use two old hand towels.  


This is a frugal exercise and it requires vary little equipment to strengthen those legs. Look at my video to see how to do the exercise properly:


Workout Plan

Add this to your leg workouts.

Beginners     3 sets of 10 repetitions
Intermediate  4 sets of 12 repetitions
Advanced     5 sets of 15 repetitions

If you have any knee pain, let me know about this so I can give you some alternatives to this exercise. Also, remember to subscribe to get more free exercise plans.

  1. What an awesome tip! I'll have to pass this on to my friend who has regular knee pain...maybe the discs can help her get these in more often!

  2. Femme, tell her to hold on to the chair with both hands to start off and if she okay, to hold on with one hand.
