Slide your way to stronger legs.
In this video, Men’s Health Fitness Director B.J. Gaddour shows you how to do a reverse lunge, side lunge, and hamstring curl with a mini slide board:
Mini slide boards intensify old-school classics by decreasing your stability, and keeping your muscles activated and under tension from start to finish, he explains.
Take each rep slow, since it’ll feel like your doing your lower-body workout on a patch of ice. (You can also use a towel, socks, or paper plates on a hard floor or carpet.)
You can do 10 reps of each movement as a warmup before your next squat or deadlift workout. Or you can do the exercises as a circuit, performing reps of each move in a row for one minute.
Rest 15 to 30 seconds between each move.
