A small hand towel is all you need for a creative towel workout. Use it as a resistance band, slider, and more for a home workout that’s anything but boring. Use it to strengthen your shoulders.Straighten your arms over your head while holding an end of the towel in each hand about 18 inches apart. Keeping your arms over your head, pull with each hand as hard as you can, creating resistance. Hold for several seconds and repeat. A towel also makes a great stretching tool. While lying on the floor, loop a towel behind one ankle. Grab the towel from both ends, and bring the towel and leg toward your chest.
