How It Works

Complete each exercise for 15-20 reps. After you complete each exercise, do 30 seconds of high intensity cardio of your choice (spinning, battle ropes or treadmill) followed by 1-minute rest.

1 / Weighted Ball Slams

Hold a medicine ball with both hands and stand with your feet at shoulder width. This will be your starting position. Raise the ball above your head and fully extending your body. Reverse the motion by slamming the ball into the ground directly in front of you as hard as you can. Pick the ball up with both hands on the bounce and repeat the movement.

2 / Twisting Ball Slams

Hold the weighted ball with both hands above your head. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Pivoting your left foot while twisting to the left, throw the ball down on your left side while ending in a lunge position. Pick the ball up while revers- ing the movement. Pivot your right foot while twisting to the right, and slam the ball down on the right side leaving you in a lunge position on the right side. That is one rep.

3 / Single Leg Lunge On A Bosu Ball

Stand on a bosu ball while holding a medicine ball in your hands. While keeping all your weight on your right foot, and bend your right knee, while lunging back- wards lowering your knee towards the ground. While lunging backwards, use the ball as a counter balance and rotate to the right. Reverse the movement and return to your original position. That is 1 rep.

4 / Box Step Ups With A Single Arm Press

Hold a kettle bell in your right hand and raise your arm into the air. Place your left foot on the box with your knee at a 90-degree angle. Put all your weight on your left foot and push off.

5 / Kettlebell Squats

Stand on a bosu ball while holding a medicine ball in your hands. While keeping all your weight on your right foot, and bend your right knee, while lunging back- wards lowering your knee towards the ground. While lunging backwards, use the ball as a counter balance and rotate to the right. Reverse the movement and return to your original position. That is 1 rep.

6 / Plank

Get into a squat position; hike the kettle bell between your legs. Using the power from your legs, hike the kettle bell up and past your shoulders while maintaining a tight core, and straight back while maintaining control of the kettle bell. You will be back to the starting position. That’s your first rep.
