Quite the versatile item, the paper plate. Using paper plates for a serious workout sounds silly. Until, that is, you get on all fours and try out some of the moves shown in the video. The challenge offered by sliding on two paper plates is surprisingly intense. Fashioned after gliding, a kind of workout invented by Mindy Mylrea, a fitness professional and busy mother of three, paper-plate fitness is fast gaining popularity. Just as with foods: The simpler, the better. Mindy didn't originally use paper plates, but purpose-designed specialty gadgets, but I, like many others, have found paper plates every bit as good.

Give it a go. Harder than you thought, isn't it? Simple, rewarding exercise, and almost zero-cost equipment. It doesn't get better than that!
