Total Body Towel Toning

Can you believe we are already in the 5th week of the #HappyNewYOU Challenge?! Crazy right??

Well the good news is that we still have FOUR more weeks of fun new workouts, amazing recipes, and some of my favorite new tips and tricks!

And speaking of fun workouts — this new workout is no exception! Seriously, there is nothing more fun than a towel workout (or sliders, or paper plates!)

My original towel workout, was one of the first “viral” workouts on the blog way back when…I remember when it hit 100 pins on Pinterest…now new workouts hit over 3,000 in the very first week!

Anyway, people love towel workouts because they are so convenient and you can do them anywhere. 

Here’s the thing, if you have hard floors, like hardwood or tile, you’ll want to use some old dish towels, but if you’re on car or rug, grab some paper plates or invest in some really cheap sliders. They are AWESOME for traveling and hotel room workouts!😘

Remember, check in in the community after your workout today, and be sure to look out for the week 4 prize winner over in the community as well!

Total Body Towel Workout

  • Twisting Knees Tucks – Start in a full plank position with one towel under both feet. Use your lower abs and obliques to pull both knees in towards your chest, and twist them to the outside of the RIGHT elbow. Extend the legs back straight to the center in your plank, and repeat on the other side — pulling the knees in and over to the LEFT. Complete 10 repetitions on each side.
  • Plank Walks – Come into a plank position on your hands with a towel under each foot. Keep your arms tight and spine neutral, then “walk” with your hands about 6 inches in front of you. Then “walk” about 10 “steps” forwards, and then reverse and go backwards!
  • Curtsy Lunges –  Place a towel under each food and stand with feet hip distance apart. Keep your weight in your RIGHT leg, as you slide your LEFT leg back behind you diagonally. Use the front RIGHT leg to press through the hamstring and booty, and stand back up as you slide the LEFT leg back in. Repeat to the other side, and continue for 10 repetitions on each side.
  • Squat Press Backs – Continue standing with each foot on a towel. Sit your hips back and lower into a squat, as you slightly shift your weight to your RIGHT leg. Use your hamstrings and booty on the LEFT side to press the leg back straight, pull it back in, and press up to standing. Lower back into your squat and repeat on the other side. Continue alternating pressing each leg back for a total of 20 repetitions.
  • Power Push Ups – These are tough! Place a towel under each hand, and come to a push up position on your knees. Keep both hands narrow, and lower into a push-up position with your LEFT arm. As you slide your RIGHT arm out to the side. Press up through the LEFT arm, and slide the RIGHT arm back in, then repeat on the other side. Continue alternating to complete 10 repetitions total.
