In this outdoor circuit workout, Merrithew® Lead Instructor Trainer Jennifer Dahl demonstrates a dynamic series of exercises that can be used as a standalone warm-up or as part of an intense cardio conditioning routine.
These exercises focus on hand-eye coordination, and explore weight transfer and load with multi-planar and agility-based movements, making them a great workout routine to prepare you for seasonal athletic activities, such as softball, tennis, swimming and soccer.
Using the 6 lbs (2.7 kg) Twist Ball™ provides an added challenge to help you improve coordination, cardio endurance and agility. With its unique shifting center of sand, the Twist Ball helps you focus on progressive tractioning and swing/pendulum-style movements with the addition of an external load.
Ready to mix up your workout routine? Take these exercises to the park or do them in your backyard. You can create an intense cardio conditioning circuit by completing three to five sets.
