No time to hit the gym in between work, christmas shopping (& parties), sleep, socializing and enjoying time with freinds and family? We have the perfect solution - working out at home! Even though you might only have 15 minutes to spair, it is better than nothing. So let's get started - all you need is a exercise mat!
YOGA MAT GRIP & CUSHION
A high performance mat with excellent grip, density and firmness. Any water or sweat will gradually absorb into the mat to provide the best possible grip and a slip-free surface.
- Best possible grip in dry & "sweaty-wet" conditions.
- Laser cut positioning lines.
- Great support & cushioning from the natural rubber layer.
- The mat size is bigger than regular mats giving the user the extra space. Once used to this size you will never go back.

Start in a plank position. Jump with your feet forward to a squatting position and then all the way up with your hand above your head and straight body. Return to a plank position.

5. LYING SPINAL TWIST
Lie down on your back, move your hips an inch to the right to get in the right position for the stretch. Place your right foot in the mat with a bent knee and stretch out your left leg. Press the right knee over your left leg and help the stretch by placing your left hand on the right knee. Extend the right arm straight out at the side and let your gaze follow the same direction. Hold and then repeat on the other side.
