Workout:

TRX Single-Leg Pistol Squat

Description: Pistol squats are one of the best exercises to help increase lower-body strength and stability.

Instruction:

  • Balance on one leg with a light grip on the TRX handles
  • Squat as low as you can while keeping opposite foot elevated
  • Stand up and drive through the heel to a full standing position 
Kettlebell American Swing

Description: The American swing is a variation of the traditional kettlebell swing, but the end position is above the head, in line with your spine.

Instruction:

  • Holding the kettlebell in both hands, tilt forward to find a hip-hinge position
  • Drive through the heels, and explosively send hips forward to full extension to drive the kettlebell overhead
  • Keep glutes and core tight while maintaining neutral head position 
Boxing-Rear Hook 

Description: Boxing is a great way to develop strength, stamina, power and hand-eye coordination. The rear hook is a close-range power punch that emphasizes rotation.

Instruction:

  • From your guard position, lift the rear elbow as you rotate the hips and back foot for power
  • As your strike comes toward the bag, your elbow is bent at 90 degrees with palm facing down or in toward you
  • Snap the punch when it hits your target, and rotate back to your guard position  
Battle Rope Alternating Waves 

Description: Battle rope alternating waves is a great full-body exercise, where the focus is creating small “waves” that travel the length of the rope.

Instruction:

  • Find an athletic stance — core tight, chest proud, slight bend in knees
  • Quickly raise and lower ropes (alternating)
  • Create power and speed so that waves reach the other end of the rope 
Landmine Single-Leg Lunge to Overhead Press

Description: The landmine provides a fixed plane of motion and allows the movement to be loaded in a unique way.

Instruction:

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart while holding landmine at chest height 
  • Step back into a reverse lunge 
  • Drive through the front foot to starting position, then press the bar straight overhead
Barbell Sumo Squat 

Description: The barbell sumo squat is a compound movement that’s great in developing strength for the inner-thigh and gluteus maximus.

Instruction:

  • Find an open stance (30-45 degree angle) with feet outside of hip width
  • Grab barbell with a shoulder-width grip
  • With a straight back, neutral spine and upright body, drive through the heels to full hip extension
SB Slam 

Description: Using a slam ball is a fantastic way to incorporate a high-intensity, full-body power movement that hits just about every major muscle group.

Instruction:

  • Find an athletic stance — feet shoulder width, knees slightly bent
  • Use legs and shoulders to drive the slam ball overhead
  • Engage your core, chest and legs to forcefully drive the slam ball through the floor in front of your feet
Ski Erg 

Description: The ski erg is one of the best ways to build strength, endurance and power — and it’s completely non-impact.

Instruction:

  • Stand tall while holding handles just above your head 
  • Drive handles down by engaging core and hinging hips before bending knees 
  • Fully extend the arms back, then return to starting position to complete full range of motion 
CorMax Lunge Rotation 

Description: The CorMax trainer is a water- and air-filled bag that creates instability — instrumental in developing balance, core stability and coordination.

Instruction:

  • Hold bag in a “front-racked position” at shoulder height 
  • While keeping good posture, take a large step forward into a lunge position 
  • Maintaining a lunge position, rotate shoulders and CorMax over the knee
