(KUTV) Jeffrey Beck, exercise specialist at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Murray demonstrated how you can work out with just two paper plates.
- Lunges: With your feet together, place a plate under your right foot. Position your hands on your hips as you push back with your right foot until your left thigh is roughly parallel to the floor. Pull your right foot up to the starting position through the same range of motion. Repeat ten times per leg and complete three sets each.
- Lat Pulls: Lie on your left side, legs stacked on top of each other. Place a paper plate under your left hand. Allow your body to slowly slide out and down toward the floor by sliding straight out with your left arm. Push yourself back up to starting position through that same arc. Repeat ten times per side and complete three sets each.
- Bridge Climbers: Place a paper plate under both of your heels and come up into the bridge position. Keeping your pelvis pointed toward the ceiling. alternately pull your heels underneath your body by engaging your hamstrings and all while keeping your glutes tight. Do this continuously for twenty seconds. Rest for thirty seconds between sets and complete a total of three.
- Wax On, Wax Off: Place a paper plate under each hand. From a push-up position, shift your weight so your supporting yourself on your right right side. With your left hand, make a succession of small circles on the floor with the paper plate continuously for fifteen seconds. Shift your weight over to the left side and repeat with your right hand. Rest for twenty seconds and repeat three times per side.
