Plank Hip Dips
Single-Leg Step-Up Jump
30 seconds each
Repeat three times
The Move: Incline Push-Ups
How to: Stand facing a bench or sturdy elevated platform. Place hands on the edge of the bench or platform, slightly wider than shoulder-width. Position your forefoot back from the bench or platform with arms and body straight. Your arms should be perpendicular to your body. Keeping your body straight, lower your chest to the edge of the bench or platform by bending your arms. Push your body up until your arms are extended.
Repeat for 30 seconds.
The Move: Jumping Jacks
How to: Stand with your feet together, arms fully extended with your hands by your sides. This is the start position. Bend your knees slightly then straighten and push through the balls of your feet while straightening your knees to jump up, spreading your legs to wider than hip-width apart. As you do so, raise both arms out and up in a smooth arc until your hands meet above your head. As you return to the ground, bring your feet together and your hands back to your sides with your arms fully extended.
Continue this movement for 30 seconds.
The Move: Mountain Climbers
How to: Begin in a push-up position, with your weight supported by your hands and toes. Flexing the knee and hip, bring one leg forward until the knee is approximately under the hip. This will be your starting position. Explosively reverse the positions of your legs, extending the bent leg until the leg is straight and supported by the toe, and bringing the other foot up with the hip and knee flexed.
Repeat in an alternating fashion for 30 seconds.
The Move: Plank Hip Dips
How to: Start in a low plank position with your body in a straight line, elbows bent and under your shoulders and feet hip-width apart. Rotate your hips to the right and dip your body almost to the floor. Return to the starting position and repeat on the left side.
Keep alternating sides for 30 seconds.
The Move: Side Lunge
How to: Assume an athletic standing position, with the knees and hips slightly bent, feet shoulder-width apart, and the head and chest up. This will be your starting position. Staying low, take a slow, lateral step to the right. Keep your toes pointed forward. Extend the left knee, driving your weight to the right, flexing the knee and hip into a side lunge. Maintain good posture through the entire spine, keeping your head and chest up. Pause at the bottom of the motion, and then extend through the working leg to return to a standing position, transitioning into a lunge to the opposite side.
Repeat for 30 seconds, then switch legs.
The Move: Single-Leg Step-Up Jump
How to: Stand up straight in front of an elevated platform. Place your left foot on the platform. Stomp on the platform with your left foot and immediately contract your left quad and glute to explosively drive your body up into a jump. Fully extend the left leg and drive your right knee up until your thigh is parallel to the ground. Land on your foot and bend your left knee and hip to lower to starting position, where your right foot touches the floor.
