Do you want a workout that will knock your socks off? You don’t need expensive exercise equipment to get into great shape.
In fact, one of the best body-building tools is located where you’d least expect it — your dresser drawer. Socks are your secret weapon for burning major calories, challenging your balance, strengthening your stabilizer muscles, and breathing new life into stale, standard movements such as lunges and planks.
Whether you wear knee highs or an ankle cut, a set of socks can transform any space into your own personal total gym. Here’s how:

Sometimes the simplest piece of workout equipment can yield the best results.
