Who would have known a rolled up bathmat could be so handy? I was using this to block a draft from the back door of my garage where I train, but Home Depot had a nifty heavy-duty draft stop that I bought on impulse. It works like a charm!
I was doing some strength training this afternoon, and decided to put the old mat to good use. A few strips of duct tape keeps it together, and I used it for calf raises and to increase the difficulty of straight-legged dead lifts. I have to say it did the trick!
I can think of a few other uses as well. I might try it as padding to help me finally master single-knuckle push-ups. It could help with neck bridges as well. Can you think of any other uses? Do you have any simple, fun training toys?
