Start in an extended arm plank position, shoulders over your wrists and your body in a straight line with your feet together. Without moving your upper body, jump both feet out to the side and return them to center at a swift pace, like a jumping jack.
Curtsy to Lateral Lunge
Step your left leg wide to the left into a lateral lunge, bending your left leg. Keep your chest lifted and weight in your left heel. Push off your left foot and cross the left leg behind your right leg into a curtsy, bending both knees. Repeat for 45 seconds and then switch legs.
Set up in a high plank position with your hands under your shoulders and feet about shoulder-width apart. Then jump both feet up to the outside of your hands into a squat position. Jump your feet back and repeat.
Reverse Lunge to Knee Up
Begin with your legs parallel, hip-width distance apart. Take a step back with your left leg, bending both knees at a 90° angle so your back knee hovers the floor. Extend both knees, transferring your weight onto your right foot and at the same time, lift your left leg and bring your knee to your chest. Repeat for 45 seconds and then switch to the opposite leg.
Standing Side Crunch
Stand up straight with your feet hip-width distance apart and your hands behind your head. Shift your weight to the right leg and crunch to the left side, bringing your left knee toward your left elbow. Lower your leg and stand up straight. Repeat for 45 seconds and then switch sides.
