Break the Board
After completing this circuit once, repeat it at a quicker pace, as if you were dancing. Do eight circuits total.
What you'll need: a pair of 2-pound dumbbells or sand weights (shown here: $13, bpp2.com/weights)
Targets butt and legs
- Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, arms by sides, holding a weight in each hand.
- Balancing on left leg, lift right knee to waist level as you raise arms in front of you to chest height, palms down; quickly lower arms to sides (as if pretending to break a board over right knee); return to start.
- Switch legs and repeat to complete 1 rep. MAKE IT HARDER: Add a hop on standing leg as you lift opposite knee.
- Do 2 reps.
