Kettlebell Swing // Soho Strength Lab Dumbell/Kettlebell Power Lab

The kettlebell swing is a great multitasking move that will improve strength while also spiking your heart rate.  To perform this move, keep a loose grip on your kettlebell and keep your legs about hip width apart.  Bring the kettlebell between your legs, hinging at the hips.  Next, swing the kettlebell upwards, using your hips to generate the momentum.

Knee Drivers // HIIT with ReXist 360

Knee drivers are a great cardio move that doesn’t require jumping around, and also help to improve core strength.  Begin standing with your arms above your head.  Exhale as you bring your arms done, driving your knee towards your hands.  Focus on speed to really boost your heart rate.  Repeat on the other side.
