ATF Classic: Top 10 Mat / Floor Exercises Video
Today I’m sharing another Classic ATF post that is worth taking a look at again. Last September I posted this mat / floor routine to show all of you that a great workout can be found in many forms. In this case, I demonstrated how going through a circuit of ten exercises right in your living room can deliver big results – without ever standing up!
Since its release, this video has become one of my most watched routines with over 18,000 views on YouTube and many of you have written in to tell me how much you love it. In fact some trainees have even worn heart rate monitors during the session and reported that they’ve burned nearly 500 calories! And remember – this is all done on the mat! So check out this awesome routine and let me know what you think!
TOP 10 MAT / FLOOR EXERCISES VIDEO
I’m excited because today marks another first here at Angry Trainer Fitness – it’s our first Top 10 Video!
Typically I write our Top 10 pieces as posts, but since today we’re throwing lots of different exercises at you I thought a video would be in order, so you can properly master each technique.
As the title suggests this is a list of my Top 10 Mat / Floor Exercises. Too often people just use mat work for old favorites like crunches and sit ups, exercises which have their place but aren’t half as effective as people think they are. So my list is designed to shake up your floor work.
These exercises will work just as well for men and women, since most use body weight for resistance. And of course you can perform these exercises ANYWHERE – at the gym, at home, at the road. They’ll give you a total body workout.
You can either pick and choose from the video and add to your existing workouts – or if you’re really up for a challenge, you can perform all 10 exercises as a complete circuit.
If you opt for the latter, don’t think for a second that this workout isn’t challenging – it is! It hits the core, upper body and glutes and focuses on areas that many trainees overlook. And if you perform all 10 movements in sequence, with little rest between, you’ll get a great cardiovascular benefit as well. Try it and let me know your thoughts.
Also – don’t forget to join the Angry Trainer Fitness YouTube Channel to stay updated with my latest videos! There’s lots more great stuff on there for you to check out – and please do spread the word so your family and friends can benefit too.
Be well, but stay Angry!

Here’s a great subject up for debate – can being friends with people who are overweight increase your chances of packing on the pounds? I originally wrote this two years ago and since then I’ve made some observations – I think the opposite is more true! In other words, I believe it’s much more likely…

Many of you have wondered what’s best to eat prior to your workout for optimal performance from your body. And of course you’ve heard me recommend post workout shakes that are a blend a whey, egg and casein time and again. But some people have been asking me about fasted workouts and if there is…

At some point or another you’ve probably used hip bridges in your fitness routine. And if you’re a man who thinks that this movement is just for the ladies – you’re wrong! The hip bridge is a great way to glute and hamstring strength. You can use them before a workout as a pre-exhaustion exercise…

I’ll be honest – in the past if I was short on time I’d just skip my workout altogether. But these days I know better and I’ve realized that you don’t have to be in the gym to get great benefits from a simple exercise routine. So today I’m sharing a bodyweight / resistance band…

What’s the one body part EVERYONE seems to want these days? I’d go for six-pack abs – that much desired washboard stomach that every infomercial and workout video seems to be geared towards! Well six-pack abs take a lot of work and let’s be honest – working your abs can sometimes be boring right?…
