Plyo Box Lower Body Workout is a super intense 15 minute workout from BeFit. The perfect finisher for a lower body workout or even as I used it today–to finish off a Cathe Live cardio workout. According to my Fitbit, 13 of the 15 minutes of this workout I was in my peak heart rate zone. It was intense!
Like Strong Ass Glutes the workout is done voice over and appears to have been pieced together from other workouts. Or, more accurately, after doing both this workout and Strong Ass Glutes, they did a lot of different exercises using some different exercisers on the same set (a roof top at night) then pieced them together into lots of different little workouts. This is not a bad thing at all. Both workouts are put together well, have appropriate music and a great setting. I really, really like these little BeFit workouts as add on/finishers. In fact, you could put several of them together for a great workout. Do something for a warm up (maybe a short Popsugar cardio workout?), do Strong Ass Glutes followed by Plyo Box Lower Body and finish with a Popsugar stretch (Stretch for Longer Leaner Limbs would work well here).
Anyway, the point is, I am really loving these YouTube workouts!
Plyo Box Lower Body Workout is 15 minutes long, no warm up or cool down. You do 5 circuits of 5 exercises. Each exercise is done for 30 seconds. You get a 30 second recovery period between circuits. At the end of the final circuit, instead of 30 seconds of recovery you hold hollow man for 30 seconds. The only equipment needed is a plyo box. I used my square high step at 14 inches for everything except the one leg box squats and for that I used my workout bench. You can also have a mat ready for the final Hollow Man hold at the end.
Exercises (do each exercise for 30 seconds):
- Running Taps (fast feet taps on top of high step/box)
- Lateral Step Overs (step over top of high step/box)
- One Leg Box Squat (while standing on one leg, sit back onto box/bench then immediately stand back up–still on one leg; alternate legs)
- Box Jumps
- Burpee Box Jumps
Repeat this circuit 5 times. At the end of each circuit you get a 30 second recovery, except at the end of the 5th circuit. At the end of that one you hold Hollow Man for 30 seconds.
