- Box jumps are demanding on the metabolic system making them a great exercise to torch fat and since high intensity training such as box jumps stimulates the process where fuel is converted to energy the body will burn fat before carbohydrates…good news for people looking to lose weight! They will also increase your lower body strength and muscle tone along with imporoving balance and agility.
- The kettlebell swing produces a lot of metabolic disturbance in a short amount of time (it burns lots of calories), and is also an excellent exercise for developing posterior chain strength like the deadlift. So, for people with lower back issues, this can be a great alternative movement to the deadlift. It will also strengthen the core and deep abdominal muscles as, by controlling the kettlebell during the lowering phase, the abdominal muscles would have to work hard to stabilize the pelvis and lower back.
- The wall ball exercise comprises of two movements – squat and press – brought together at light loads and extended volume to create a potent metabolic conditioning tool. Wall ball are a functional exercise (a movement performed in multiple planes using multiple joints). By doing multiple repetitions of wall balls, your explosive power will steadily increase as well as your cardio-respiratory fitness.
- Deadlift is probably the number one strength exercise and works more muscles than any other movement. The deadlift develops the muscles and functionality you actually need to lift everyday items such as heavy grocery bags. Deadlifts if performed correctly, can increase the amount of testosterone and growth hormone produced by your body. Which will in turn increase muscle growth, improve muscle repair, promote tissue healing, bone strength and fat loss. It can also help to prevent injuries by increasing the strength of your muscles around critical tendons and ligaments. Supporting joints with strong muscles is crucial to preventing injury.
