Looking to add challenges to your leg workout? Why not try the Valslide.
Valslide, a slipper disk that’s used to glide your hands or feet over a surface like a carpet and hardwood floor is a smart workout tool.
The disk was developed by Valerie Waters, a celebrity trainer based in Los Angeles. It’s meant to be an add-on to certain strength training exercises like side lunges and butt bridge.
It not only makes sliding motion easier but also adds challenges to the workout as it adds friction. Your base of support is less stable with Valslides and your core muscles get more engaged because of it.
Their disks are light-weight, small, and perfectly portable. It’s also one of the most affordable fitness equipment on the market, at around $30 a pair.
Add a pair of Valslide disk to this quick leg workout to get more out of your routine and maximize your results. (Note: Valslides work best on a carpet, but with a set of Valslide booties, you can also use them on a smooth surface without scratching the floor.)
We compiled a list of leg exercises you can do at home with the Valslide. Chose 1 or 2 of these exercises to add to your leg workout. We recommend doing 10-12 reps and 3 sets for each.
