Rob Dyrek Fitness Factory Celebrity Workout

Skateboarding champ Rob Dyrdek is living an adolescent’s dream at the age of 35.  The 5’7” 135-pound skater and star of MTV’s hit reality show Fantasy Factory works out of a converted warehouse that he has basically transformed into his own personal playhouse and from which he runs his entrepreneurial ventures.  Dyrdek is now also dabbling in screenwriting, cartoon developing, and clothing design…and with all that he still finds time for to stay in top physical condition.

Dyrdek recently hired trainer, neuromuscular therapist, and founder of Alexandra Lewis, and moved her into his Hollywood Hills home to help keep him on track.

“My goal is to educate people through proper training technique and help them prevent injuries and balance their body,” says Lewis, a former professional triathlete.

Lewis designed a core exercise circuit for Dyrdek focused on functional movements done with stability training equipment.  The following four movement circuit first appeared in the March 2010 issue of Men’s Fitness magazine.  Depending upon your fitness level you can do this circuit up to 5 times per week.

Swiss Ball Lateral Raise

Stand on a Swiss ball with a pair of light dumbbells.  Raise your arms until they are parallel to the floor.  Use a weight that allows you to complete 12-15 reps.  You may want a partner for this one as it will be challenging to balance on the Swiss ball if you are not used to it.

Cable Chop

Hold the handle on the top pulley of a cable station with both hands a rotate your body diagonally down as if you were swinging an ax.  Do 12-15 reps on each side.

Single Lateral Pushup on Handles

Get into pushup position with your feet on a Swiss ball and your hands on pushup handles.  Use your core to keep yourself stabilized and raise one leg off the ball.  Do 12-15 reps and then raise the opposite leg.  This move will work your upper chest and shoulders well.  The pushup handles take stress off of your wrists and allow you to get deeper into the pushup.

Stability Squat

Stand on a wobble board, bosu ball, or other unstable surface and perform a back squat.  You will have to use less weight then normal but this should really help improve your balance and work the stabilizer muscles in your legs.
