Be Well Workout of the Week: A Box Workout Guaranteed to Make Your Muscles Burn

A box, bench, sturdy coffee table or a low wall — or any other stable surface of your choice, really — and a weight are all you need for this workout. Every move will incorporate the box (or other sturdy surface), so make sure you are doing the moves throughout this workout safely and with confidence — there will be some jumping involved.

Now, your instructions: You’re going to complete the below circuit as fast as you can — while maintaining good form, of course — four times total. You will definitely be warming the bench in a whole new way after this one. Happy sweating!

Instructions: Complete circuit 4 times
5 burpee box jumps
10 decline push-ups
10 bench lunges on each side
10 up-and-down planks
15 up-and-overs
15 plank row on each side.
15 power step-ups (alternate, doing 15 on each side)
20 plank jacks
