Burpee Ball Slams
Get your heart rate up with this explosive movement that works your entire body. Grab an 8-12 Dynamax Ball and bracing your core, bring the ball up overhead and slam it down as hard as you can. After the ball lands, step or jump your feet back into a plank position. Jump or step your feet back in, stand all the way up and repeat! Do 10 reps, then rest for 1-2 minutes. Ready for more? Repeat for 2-5 rounds!
TRX Suspended Lunges
Work on your balance, strength, and flexibility with this one TRX exercise. Bring the Suspension Trainer down to the mid-calf and place one foot in both cradles. Step your standing leg forward and catch your balance. If you need help with balance feel free to use a dowel to help you stay balanced. Bring your knee down towards the ground and pushing through your front leg come back up to standing. To make this move more explosive, add a jump! Repeat for 8-12 reps on each leg. Go for 1-3 sets for an incredibly effective leg workout.
