Repetitions: 10-20 (alternating feet)

Sets: 2-4

This exercise uses an interesting piece of equipment called ViPR (Vitality, Performance and Re-conditioning) which is designed to be used in a variety of ways for adding resistance to whole-body functional exercises. This specific exercise is performed rhythmically, and is a multi-joint exercise.
