Jump on this calorie scorcher

This week’s high intensity routine is a tough two-part session using a box or high step. (Pick a height that you are comfortable with and that challenges you.) This routine is to be repeated for a total of 8 rounds with as little rest as possible!

Box HIIT - Jump on this calorie scorcher

Step 1 – Burpee with Box Jump

Standing behind your box or step, crouch down placing your hands sturdy on the floor and jump your feet back into a plank. Jump your feet back in and hop up onto the platform in front of you. Step or jump back down to the ground and repeat for a total of 10 reps

Step 2 – Jumping Step-ups

Next, start with your right leg on the box/bench. Step up on your box/step with the right leg and jump up while you drive your left knee up with power. Land on your right foot on the box/bench, and then lower the left leg back to the ground. Repeat this explosive movement 10 times on each leg. Finish all ten repetitions on the right leg before switching and completing the same amount of reps on your left leg.

Minimize your rest and start again. How quickly can you finish 8 rounds? Good Luck!
