To complete the Full-Body Burner Challenge, perform 10 reps of Dumbbell Squats and Shoulder Presses, then 20 Skater Plyos. Repeat the circuit twice more. Time yourself and make sure you're performing full reps with proper form.

Dumbbell Squat and Shoulder Press

  • Holding dumbbells in an athletic stance, lower into a Squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground
  • Keep your back straight and your knees behind your toes
  • Extend your hips and knees to drive out of the squat position and press the dumbbells overhead
  • Lower the dumbbells to your shoulders and repeat
  • Use 25-pound dumbbells if possible

Skater Plyos

  • Bound at least three feet to the left off your right leg
  • Land on your left foot, bringing your right foot behind and your right hand across your body
  • Immediately repeat to the other side

The Challenge

Perform three sets of Dumbbell Squats and Shoulder Presses (10 reps) and Skater Plyos (20 reps) as quickly as possible.

How Do You STACK Up?

No Rookie, Pro and All-Star levels this week. Just focus on full reps performed as quickly as possible. Repeat the challenge once a week for four weeks, and strive to beat your previous time each week.
