Now that you've gotten some experience under your belt with the beginner yoga wedge exercises, you might find yourself looking for the next challenge.
Not only are the foam yoga wedge blocks versatile for beginners, they are also highly adaptable and can be used for increasingly difficult exercises as you become more acquainted with the equipment.
Here are 3 exercises that will be sure to get your heart pumping and the sweat rolling!
Take traditional push-ups to new heights.
Similar to the traditional and highly-adored push-up, the decline push-up increases the difficulty of the workout while still maintaining the core functionalities of the original.
To begin, simply place the yoga wedge with the thinnest edge facing you near the bottom of your toes while lying down.
Next, simply get into the familiar push-up position except with your toes aligned near the highest peak of the foam wedge.
Repeat the desired amount of push-ups while using typical push-up form
Build those leg muscles, one squat at a time.
Squats are notorious for being an exercise that allows individuals to see the muscular imbalance within their leg regions.
Many physical therapists are known for using half foam rollers or towels to wedge underneath client's feet to demonstrate how you can more easily support your body to remedy those improper alignments.
For this exercise, place the two wedges about a half foot apart in front of you with the smallest incline facing towards you.
Now, walk several inches onto each foam wedge and squat as you typically would with your hands together about chest-high.
By adding this to your routine you will effectively tone the side leg muscles and stretch your calves.
Squats - alternative method
Try this variation to switch things up.
Typically, most muscle indiscrepencies comes from the inner-thighs. This method of performing squats focuses on your inner-thighs rather than the side of the leg muscles.
Rather than having the heel of your foot against the lowest portion of incline, this time your heel will be at the highest point of incline.
Like you did before, place the two wedges about half foot apart and step onto them.
Finally, squat just as you were before with your hands together about chest-high.
