Paper plates, who woulda thought??

This is a Body Sculpting pattern from (pattern 12993)

I picked this idea up from Mindy Mylrea at SaraCity, Philly, PA. Using 2 9" paper plates per person, (NOT CHINETTES!), these are used as a "slide". Place one plate under your foot, the other one on the floor and stable. Using your inner thigh muscles, push the plate away from you.(the supporing knee will flex as if squatting). Then, pull the leg back in. This move can be done also as a "sliding lunge", sliding the plated leg backwards. This is a good hamstring isolater if a person's quads are strong and take over in a reverse lunge. Again, using the plates (2), place each under your feet. Lying on your back (on a mat-I hope), dig your heels into the plate. Extend your legs out (NOT TO FULL EXTENTION), squeeze your glutes and hamstrings to pull the plates towards your bum. Vary the counts and add bridges to for a challenge.

Be creative--but these moves DO NOT work well on carpet--too much friction!
