Record-setting adventurer Sean Burch demonstrates five exercises from his Hyperfit workout. A word of warning: This workout is pretty intense, and isn’t for the untrained or faint of heart. If it feels too daunting from the get-go, be prepared to scale it back, or just work elements of the routine into a more moderate regimen until you’re ready to take on the whole beast.
The motion of the overhead press dives the core to move in three dimensions. By driving the dumbbells sided to side, you also create a top-down force that causes the rib cage and pelvis to move, switching on all the muscles that connect the pelvis, rib cage and thoracic spine.
The posterior lunge and press creates greater hip extension while working the core muscles through three planes, which translates to more flexibility and power.
