Welcome to Season 2 of Fit Test Dummies! We decided to start this season out with a bounce using Spri’s Step360.

You can do anything you can think of, remember to make it fun!

Here is the list of moves we did for the circuit.

  1. Lunge – 10 each side
  2. Single leg hold, back leg lift – 10 each side
  3. Single leg knee ups – 15 each side
  4. Lunge to single leg lift – 15 each side
  5. Side leg lift – 20 each side
  6. Single arm pushups with balls – 20 each side
  7. One arm military press – 15 each side
  8. Over the top – 15 reps
  9. Pushup Jacks – 30 reps
  10. Ski Abs – 15 reps
  11. Plank to pushup – 15 reps

FTD Tips:

  • Warm up: the most important part of the workout. Do it for 5-10min depending on your level of flexibility, level of strength and how long you’ve been working out.
  • Stability Phase: this is really good for those who are just starting out and are trying to get their core centered.
  • Balance Phase: make sure you’ve mastered the Stability Phase of the Step360 program so that your form is good. Watch your lower-back and always keep your core engaged.
    • Great on the knees because the Step360 bounces with you.
    • Side handles allows you to do a lot of hand exercise on the ball.
    • Forces you to engage every muscle in your leg.
As always, work within your abilities, do what is comfortable to your body.
      • **Key with lunges: keep knees at 90 degrees and make sure your knees do not go over your toes.
