Finding creative ways to challenge yourself will improve your game. Keep your training fresh and engaging by looking at what's around you, and develop a workout that will push you to new limits. (See At-Home Workout Tools.)

Need inspiration? Try exercises using furniture sliders as a warm-up or a finisher to a tough training session. Count how many good reps you can complete. Begin with 45 seconds for each exercise and progress to 90 seconds or even two minutes.

Challenge yourself to stay disciplined during each rep. After all, the only person you would be cheating is yourself. Be yourself and believe in yourself. Fight for that extra rep. The next quality repetition is the one that will separate you from the pack.

Slide Push-Up

  • Begin in push-up position with a furniture slider under each hand
  • As you descend into a Push-Up, slide one arm out in front
  • Rise up and return to start with both hands in push-up position
  • Repeat

Hamstring Slide

  • Lie down with knees bent and furniture sliders under your feet
  • Lift your hips off the floor into a bridge position
  • Holding this position, press into the floor and slide your feet out in front of you
  • Contract your hamstrings and continue pressing into the floor as you slide back to starting position

Sliding Lunges

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart
  • Rest the toe of your left foot on a furniture slider
  • Bend your right leg while sliding your left foot back into a lunge position
  • Keep your right knee behind the toe, torso upright and abs in
  • Slowly slide your left foot back to starting position
  • Repeat

Sliding Side Lunge

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart
  • Rest the toe of your left foot on a furniture slider
  • Bend your right leg while sliding your left foot out to a side lunge position
  • Keep your right knee aligned, torso upright and abs in
  • Slowly slide your left foot back to starting position
  • Repeat
