Squat and Standing Knee Twist
Inchworm Push-Up with a Squat Jump
4 Mountain Climbers and 4 Plank Knee Crunches
Lateral Slides with Squat Drop
The Move: Squat and Standing Knee Twist
How to: Sit down into a squat position and return back up to standing. Place your hands behind your head and as you drive one knee up to your chest. Twist your opposite elbow toward that knee by engaging your core and rotating. Return back to a squat and complete the exercise with the opposite knee and elbow twisting toward each other.
The Move: Inchworm Push-Up with a Squat Jump
How to: Walk your hands out to a full plank position and engage your core to complete a push-up. Walk your hands back to your toes and as you stand up, complete one vertical hop at the top. To take the impact out of this movement, simply stand up and return back to the inchworm.
The Move: 4 Mountain Climbers and 4 Plank Knee Crunches
How to: Start in a plank position and complete four mountain climbers to increase your heart rate and then slow this movement down by performing four cross-body crunches while still in plank position.
The Move: Lateral Slides with Squat Drop
How to: Slide two times to the right and sit down into a squat before you resume lateral slides back to the left side. At the end of each slide, drop down into a squat and push back up to resume the slides. If you need to dial this exercise down for lower impact, take two lateral steps and sit into a squat, alternating side step directions for each rep.
