Bum ups x 10

Towel slides x 10
Place a towel on the floor and get into full push up position with your feet on the towel. Bring your knees to your chest. The towel should slide inwards. Return to start. Repeat 10 times. If you’re performing the routine in a carpeted area, use paper plates instead.
