INCREASE THE HEAT

PUSH YOUR METABOLISM TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH A WORKOUT THAT RAISES YOUR HEART RATE AND BUILDS MAJOR MUSCLE. KARIN SHAY DEMONSTRATES THIS KILLER ROUTINE.

This total-body workout takes conventional exercises and steps them up a notch or two. Each exercise should be completed once for 12 to 15 reps. Once you have 2nished ahh of the exercises, start again from the top. Do this cycle three times.

[A] Take a narrow grip on a barbell. Space your feet wider than shoulder-width apart with your toes angled out 45 degrees.

[B] Take a deep breath in as you bend your knees to squat, keeping your chest tall and your heels on the floor. Ex- hale as you extend your legs to stand. Repeat immediately.

 

[A] Start by holding a sandbag or weight with both hands above your head. Take a step forward and lunge by bending both legs to lower toward the ground. Make sure your front knee never goes beyond your toes.

[B] As you move, rotate the sandbag from above your head toward the side of your front leg. Step back, then repeat on your other side. Complete the same amount of reps on each leg.

 

 

[A] Begin by standing on the floor about a foot-and-a-half away from & strong step or bench. Hold a lightweight in each hand. Step your right foot behind you and lunge.

[B] Press through your left foot and step forward with your right, placing it flat on the bench.

[C] As you extend your leg to rise onto the pl&tform, lift your left knee in front of you. Step back to the floor with your left foot, then your right. Finish all reps on one side before switching to the other.

 

 

 

 

[A] Begin in a low squat with your weight in your heels and your eyes ahead.

[B] Extend your legs explosively to jump into the air, using your arms to help propel you upward. Land softly, absorbing the impact by bending your knees as you return to the starting position. Move fluidly and immediately into your next rep.

 

Get into a push-up position on the floor, holding on to either side of & BOSU’s platform. Place your toes on top of another BOSU behind you. Maintain & flat back and straight arms. Alternate driving each knee toward your chest while keeping your hips level with the ground.
