Sponge Mop

Want to whittle your middle? A sponge mop makes for a great pole for torso twists. Place the mop over your shoulders while standing tall and exhale to rotate your torso as far to one side as possible while keeping your hips facing forward. Inhale as you return to center and repeat to the other side. Another idea? Tie the bleach/water bottles from the last slide on each end of the mop with an old pair of socks and presto…you’ve made your own barbell.
