Grab Paper Plates, Socks, or Sliders, and Glide Along to These Free Workout Videos

One of the easiest pieces of workout equipment to store is a set of sliders. They're disks that you can generally use on carpet and hard flooring for ab exercises, leg exercises, arm exercises — you name it. The best part is that if you don't have them in your home, you can opt for socks or a towel on hard flooring and paper plates on carpet, and you'll get the same effect.

Using sliders works your stability, endurance, and flexibility, NASM-certified personal trainer Stef Corgel told POPSUGAR. "Sliders can be used to achieve a total-body burn or to target smaller, more specific stabilizing muscles," she added. They make moves like planks and lunges more advanced but are also low-impact — not to be confused with low-intensity, since these sliders can bring the burn. It's a win-win if you're not into high-impact exercises but want to challenge yourself.

Ahead, check out workout videos straight from YouTube that incorporate sliders in either all of the sweat session or parts of it. Some of these videos also suggest using weights, and they range from under 10 minutes to over 40. Grab your socks, plates, towels, or sliders, and let's get our glide on!

12-Minute Full-Body Slider Workout From Nicole Pearce

This workout from NASM-certified personal trainer Nicole Pearce includes progressions that will add exercises together to make them "combos," and then take moves away to work on individual exercises. For instance, you'll do twisted push-ups, then add on thread-the-needle pikes, then end with just thread-the-needle pikes. The progression concept in this 12-minute session may seems a bit daunting, but Pearce explains it all in the beginning.
