It’s Interval Time with Just a Weight Bench!

  • High Step Ups: step up onto a bench with your right foot, bringing your left knee up and into the air without touching the foot on the bench.  Step back down and perform on the other side, stepping up with your left foot.  Repeat, alternating legs.
  • Bench Jump Overs: Place your hands on either side of a weight bench, feet together on the left side.  Look down between your hands, then jump your feet (keeping them plastered together) over to the opposite side.  Repeat.
  • Bench Jumps: Stand in front of a weight bench, with two feet, jump up on top of it and then back down.  Repeat.
  • Quick Tap-Downs: Stand on top of a weight bench, clasp your hands together or hold dumbbells at either side of you for a more difficult round, bend down and tap your right foot to the floor, then stand up all the way straight without putting that foot back on the bench.  Repeat tapping on one leg, then on the other.
