Go into beast mode with these extreme exercises


HOUSTON – If your normal workouts are a getting a little boring, here are 5 full body workouts that will take things to the next level.

Houston Life's Lauren Kelly met up with personal trainer Michael Sullivan to feel the burn.

Michael showed Lauren these 5 exercises that work out multiple muscles in the body.

1) Box jumps- builds your upper and lower body muscles, especially in the legs. 

2) Battle ropes- Abs, back, glutes and upper body are all targeted, also great for cardio.  

3) Sledgehammer and Tire- full body, plus grip and forearm strength. Plus, it's great for taking out your daily frustrations.

4) Weighted sled push/pull with harness- build explosive power and speed, especially in lower body.

5) Weight sled push/pull- Like the above exercise, but without the cool harness.
