Value the Valslide (Towel)
Stability training should be a significant component of every abs routine, and few pieces of gear work core stability as effectively as the Valslide (towel) – a flat plastic disk that glides easily across smooth surfaces. The Valslide reach takes the concept of ab-wheel rollouts and intensifies it, calling for harder muscle contractions to keep the slides stable when they are away from your body.

- Get down on the ground. Start in a pushup position with each hand on a towel. Keep your core tight and your body straight.
- Slide one arm at a time. Brace your core and slide the right towel straight out – then bring it back to the push-up position. Repeat with the left arm.
- Burn it up. Do 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps (each arm). For the more advanced, try sliding both arms above your head at the same time.
