Boost Your Metabolism With This SpeedX Workout

Jumping lunges, oh how we love to hate thee.

The BRICK SpeedX Moves

Pistols: Begin with feet shoulder distance apart. Extend your right leg as you balance on your left and go down into a squat. Bring your chest down onto your left quadracep to maintain balance. Drive your heel into the ground as you come to full standing position. Switch feet. You can also hold onto a countertop for assistance if needed.

Single Arm Dumbbell Push Press: Begin with your dumbbells in the rack position (with the heads of the dumbbells resting on your shoulders and your triceps parallel to the ground). Dip slightly in the knees to recruit your core muscles and press the dumbbell in your right hand directly overhead; keep your left dumbbell in the rack position. Do five reps on your right side, then five on your left. Keep switching

Lateral Burpees: Starting in a standing position, reach your hands down in front of your feet and simultaneously kick your feet out behind you, landing chest to the ground. Immediately bring your feet back to their starting position, come to standing, and jump laterally over your dumbbell.

Mountain Climber Push-Ups: Beginning in a plank position with your hands underneath your elbows, which are underneath your shoulders, bring your chest all the way to the ground keeping your toes on the ground and your quads off of the ground. Ensure full range of motion, touching your chest to the ground then push your body back up to the plank position, locking out your elbows. Then perform four mountain climbers. Bring your right foot to the outside of your right hand and drop your hips down to the ground. Bring your right foot back to where it started in the plank and simultaneously bring your left foot to the outside of your left hand and once again drop your hips down.

Dumbbell Thrusters: Begin with feet shoulder distance apart and dumbbells in the rack position. Maintain the rack position and squat down. Drive your heels into the ground as you come up out of the squat and press the weight directly overhead. As you bring the weight back down to your shoulders, simultaneously go down into your next rep.

Wall Walks: Begin in a plank position with feet close to the wall. Perform a push-up, then begin to walk your feet up the wall into a handstand. Touch your stomach to the wall and then walk down the wall.

Hollow Rocks: Begin by lying on your back. Extend your arms straight behind you with your biceps touching your ears. Extend your legs straight in front with toes pointed. Remaining tight in the stomach, maintain this positioning as you create a rocking motion with your body like a rocking chair. Keep feet off of the ground at all times.

Jumping Lunges: Begin in a standing position and then take a large step forward so your right knee is directly above your right ankle. As you begin to step back with your right foot, send your left foot forward into a lunge. As you switch your feet include a jump so that your feet simultaneously leave the ground.

Dumbbell Russian Twists: Sit on the ground holding onto one dumbbell. Elevate your feet off of the ground and twist side to side so the dumbbell touches the ground.

90-Degree Tuck Jumps: Begin with your feet underneath your hips. Jump as high as you can into the air. As you spring off of the ground, bring your knees up into your chest and rotate in the air 90 degrees.

Like we said, this workout is hard but it works. According to BRICK, this type of a workout can boost your metabolism for up to 72 hours after. So tell us, will you try it? Will you get your SpeedX on? —Jenn

    Hi! It is really difficult to imagine most of the positions how they are done. Could you make a slideshow or a small video? Some of them are unknown to me so I just can’t imagine thme…

  2. This is my type of workout and is right along the lines of what I do with my client. From personal experience…it works. A little creativity can go a long way!!
