Life coach and neuro-linguistic programming, Mayra Cardi likes to share with her followers easy exercises to do at home to keep your body active.

This routine is based on an unusual technique to increase the intensity of the exercises. She uses pieces of fabric or socks to slide on the floor. Mayra shows on her Youtube channel how to burn calories, define the abs and glutes using this method.

Slider exercises for abs and buttocks

This workout routine is focused on strengthening the abdominal muscles and butt. It is recommended for both men and women.

You only need one thing: a pair of thick socks (preferably old ones), or an old cloth. The item will make your feet slide on the floor and allow you to perform the movement correctly.

Warning: Before starting any type of physical activity, it is important to see a doctor.

Plank sliders

In the plank position, with your hands firmly on the ground, slightly wider than your shoulder line, bring your knees towards your chest, letting your feet slide under your body and stretch in front of you.

For a less intense variation, move your feet only to your shoulder line and return to the starting position.

Recommended: 15 reps.

Mountain climber

This one burns calories and strengthens the abs at the same time. The movements mean to simulate a climb, but on the floor.

Mayra explains than the intensity varies according to the speed. In the plank position, bring your knees, one at a time, towards your chest, alternating the legs in a constant rhythm.

Recommended: 15 reps.
