Rebel X 360 Challenge!

I have a challenge for you… This challenge has been my own personal leg work (with some additions that won’t be listed here for time purposes) and I felt last week that it’s something EVERYONE can benefit from! It’s a play on my favorite leg circuit of all time and consists of 3 different leg exercises: Squats, step ups, and lunges. The way you DO them allows you to not only work on strength and sculpting but balance, coordination, oxygen usage efficiency, and heart rate as well. Follow these steps:

Step 1: Grab a BOSU

Step 2: Grab some dumbbells of your choice (decide on weight AFTER you read what you’ll be doing…)

                                          Kettlebells (matching) work as well

Step 3: Grab a plyo box

STEP 4: Set it all up!

Configure your equipment so you have a place to do step ups, a place to do squats on a BOSU, and a readily available lane to lunge in (outside works as well!).

The Challenge:

The number “360” comes from the amount of repetitions you will be doing. 1st, you are going to do 30 squats on the BOSU (black side up) holding the dumbbells at shoulder height. Once you are done there, you are immediately going to head to the tall plyobox and do step ups one leg at a time. Be sure to have the entirety of your foot on the box when you step up, always have one foot on the box at all times (alternating which leg you are stepping up with), and be sure that the leg lifting you up on each step is fully extended before you switch feet (no short changing yourself!). Your hands need to step extended and out to the side the ENTIRE TIME (no dumbbells, just body weight). After 30 total step ups, you are going to head to your lunge lane with dumbbells twice the amount of weight that you were squatting with (if you had 10s, use 20s. If you had 15s, use 30s. You get it…). After 30 steps, you get to start the cycle all over again! Let me break it down a bit simpler:

If you are able to complete the above task (minimum dumbbell requirement for squats set at 10 lb dumbbells, tallest box needs to be used for step ups, and weight needs to be MINIMUM double your squat weight for the lunges) in UNDER 15 MINUTES then e-mail me at Alllevelstraining@gmail.com… I have something for you!
