Use the Slide Boarder for Abdominal and Pectoral Muscles

Put on the appropriate shoes. Put the palm of your hands at a shorter edge of the slide board. Do a push up. Slide your extended legs back, and then forward. Repeat for four sets of ten repetitions. 

This is a good exercise. You'll feel it!

Hands on the Step for Arms, Chest, Abdominals, and Legs

You do not have to step on a step to work out. Use one step for maximum workout:

Place your palms on the step. Your torso and legs should be extended straight back. Do push-ups. This uses your arm and chest muscles, and your abdominal and leg muscles for stabilizers. Vary if your legs are touching or spread.

Do four sets of ten repetitions with each leg position.
