Are you ready for take off?! Plyo HiiT includes two supercharged workouts that are sure to keep fat burning for hours after your workout has ended. In Plyo HiiT One, periods of intense exercise are followed by very short rests. You'll keep your muscles engaged and guessing with random interval-to-rest ratios and varied tempos. Plyo HiiT Two utilizes these same principles but takes the workout onto the step. So get ready to take things up a notch (6 to 8 inches to be exact!) in Plyo HiiT Two for power packed, high intensity step intervals that are sure to keep those hearts pumping!
Equipment Needed: Mat, Step (2 risers per side), Dumbbell ( Cathe uses a 10 lb dumbbell).
