Kettlebell Shuffle Swing
Start with a kettlebell between your legs; thrust your hips forward and swing up. As the bell rises to chest height, step your left foot to the right so that your feet are almost together. As the bell swings back down, step left with your left foot. Repeat, this time swapping sides.
Low Box Lateral Runner
Stand with your left foot on the floor and your right foot on a low box or step. In one smooth movement, hop sideways across the box so your left foot is on the box and your right foot is on the floor. Repeat back and forth.
Grab a pair of dumbbells and sit tall on a box or bench. Hold the dumbbells in front of your shoulders. In one movement, drive your heels into the floor and push your body to a standing position as you explosively press the dumbbells above your head. Lower yourself and repeat.
Sandbag Reverse Lunge with Rotation
Grasp the handles of a sandbag with both hands and step into a reverse lunge, your left leg back and right leg forward. Rotate the sandbag so you’re holding it at arm’s length on the right side of your body. Now rise to a standing position as you rotate the sandbag in front of you. Switch legs, rotating the sandbag to your left as you step back with your right leg.
Single-Leg Plank Walkout
Stand tall on your left leg. Put your hands on the floor, keeping your right foot in the air, and walk your hands out until you’re at least in a high plank position. Reverse the move and switch legs.
Assume a push-up position with your hands slightly forward of your shoulders. Slowly walk your hands back towards your feet until you’re in a position to jump up. Quickly explode upward, reaching for the sky.
Band Jack Pull-Apart
Hold a resistance band at chest height out in front of you. Pull your arms back and out as far as you can as you jump your feet out.
Bear Crawl to Explosive Push-Up
Get down on all fours, your knees a couple of inches off the floor. Kick your legs out and drop your body toward the ground. Explosively push back up and return to all fours with your knees raised as before.
