Repetitions: As long as you can.

A great dynamic whole body exercise for lower body, upper body, core and cardio using the ViPR (Vitality, Performance and Re-conditioning) piece of equipment. The lighter the ViPR weight, the greater the emphasis on cardio, while as the weight increases this emphasis switches to muscular training. Again, like the other ViPR exercises, this exercise should be performed as fluidly as possible.
