Stefi Cohen is the co-founder of Hybrid Performance Method, a program that has Mat Fraser as one of the coaches. She also is a 25x world record holder and has a doctorate in physical therapy.

With such an unusual strength, her workouts are not what most people are used to. She often combines ball slam as her cardio at the end of a training set. She is a big fan of developing the upper body utilising dumbbells as well but has a plethora of lower body workouts with stepovers and squats.

As you will see, these Stefi Cohen workouts are not similar to CrossFit and can be performed by anyone, from beginners to advanced athletes. She also rarely specifies the weight of plates or dumbbells she is utilising, so if you try these for yourself, use your common sense – a weight that gives you the challenge to perform the prescribed movement without sacrificing proper form.

BOXROX has separated 10 Stefi Cohen workouts for you to start training like her. Give them a try.
