Gliding Disc Boot Camp Workout


I love using the gliding discs in my boot-camp classes but my clients and students don't love them, because the discs literally kick their butt.  So, I had to develop a gliding disc boot-camp workout for all my frugal exercisers.  If you don't have gliding discs, use a hand towel for tile or wood floors and for carpet, use something plastic like a frisbee.  




Gliding Discs Lunges


Keep your knee over your ankle when lunging.


Mountain climbers



Keep your wrist over your shoulders and keep your abs tight.


Speed Skaters



Keep the bent leg as still as possible as you bring the engaged leg back and forth 
as quickly as you can.


In and out planks




Bring your legs in and out and keep your abs tight.


Hamstring slides





Level one: Lift up your glutes, slide the legs out, slide the legs back in and then lower
your derriere back to the ground.
Level two: The same as level one but keep your derriere elevated don't lower it at 
the end of the movement.
Level 3: Do level one but cross your arms over your chest
Level 4: Do level two but cross your arms over your chest

  2. I maybe living in a hotel for an extended amount of time and this would be the perfect workout. It won't take up to much room plus it looks like it hurts like hell!

  9. I really need to do more exercises like these - I don't exercise as much as I should but when I do, I prefer to do cardio like walking/jogging which is good but I never do anything to tone/build muscle which I should.
