Challenges

Are you seriously prepared for a challenge!  I will be posting some of my more challenging workouts!  


Note: Some of these exercises are not for beginners

Battling Rope Tabata!

Skill level: intermediate to advanced

Aimee Holding battling rope and balancing on powerbag on incline.

This exercise can be considered a cardio workout it also at the same time also works on core strength and stabilizers.  The power for the rope should all be driven from the core not from the arms or legs.  Each slam should generate a pop motion at the pelvis!  Warning force will pull you forward, hold core tight and try to remain balanced!
