1. Jumping Jacks

Setup:

a) Begin by standing straight with your legs together and your hands resting on your thighs.

Action:

a) Slightly bend the knees and open your arms and legs to the side.

Note—your arms should come all the way up and touch both hands with every repetition to make sure you are getting a full range of motion. Your feet should come out slightly wider than shoulder width apart.

b) Jump back to the starting position and repeat!

2. Ski Jumps

Setup:

a) Assume a sturdy standing position.

Action:

a) Jump side to side, with close, quick pace jumps. You may use your arms for momentum. Focus on staying up on your toes and keep your core engaged!

3. Power Skips

Setup:

a) Assume a sturdy standing position.

Action:

a) Step onto your right foot and explode up into the air, raising your left knee and punching your right arm upwards at the same time.

b) Land back down on your right foot and immediately push off again with your left foot down on the floor.

c) Remember to land on the balls of your feet and keep alternating. 

4. Plank Jacks

Setup:

a) Begin in a high plank position with your hands on the floor. Make sure your body is in a straight line.

Action:

a) Jump your feet out wide, just as you would when performing a jumping jack, and then bring them back together. Don’t forget to tighten your core and keep breathing!

5. Power Push-Up

Setup:

a) Begin by completing a standard push-up with your back straight and your hands underneath your shoulders.

Action:

a) As you push upwards, jump forward and touch your toes.

b) Then, immediately jump backwards into the push-up position and repeat this motion!
