Stand up straight with your feet together and hands resting at your sides. Keep your back and head erect. Lunge forward with your right leg, bending your elbows and your hands folded into a fist. Bring your left hand at the front of your chest and keep your right hand resting at the hip. Jump, while quickly switching your arms and legs, and land in a lunge with your left foot. Keep alternating your legs while you jump and land in a lunge without breaking until you’ve finished your set.
Start in a plank position lying on the floor with your body balancing on your hands. From head to toe, your body should form a straight line. While your lower back is arched, bend your left knee towards your chest. Hold the position for 2 seconds, return to the starting position and quickly repeat with your right leg. Perform these without break until you complete your set.
Stand straight with your feet hip-width apart. With both knees bent, swing your arms back and push off the ground as high as possible. As you land softly, bend your knees and place your hands on the ground in front of you, and at the same time jump your feet to the back of you so you end up in a plank position. Lower chest to perform a push up, jump feet back in and stand up to your original position. Repeat and continue to do as many reps as possible for one minute.
Lift your knees as high as you can and kick them back so they touch your butt. To increase your heart rate, use your arms as well to improve the benefits of spot jogs. Spot jog without break for 60 seconds for however many reps.
180 Jump Squats
Begin in a squat with your legs a little wider than your hips and toes pointed outward. Twist your torso to the right, with your right hand reaching toward the ceiling and left hand toward the floor. Now jump up, and spin your body 180 degrees (halfway) to the left with both hands overhead. Softly land in a squat, twist your torso to the left, with your left hand extending toward the ceiling and right hand toward the floor. Repeat, but in reverse directions this time. Alternate sides.
