Air Squats

  • Begin with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and toes pointed slightly outward.
  • Keeping your weight in your heels, sit back into your deep squat as you raise your arms overhead.
  • Return to standing while lowering your arms to your sides. This completes one rep.
  • Do 30 reps.
Plank Jacks

Plank Jacks

  • Begin in the plank position, with your shoulders over your wrists, your body in one straight line, and your feet together.
  • Like the motion of jumping jacks, jump your legs wide apart and then back together to complete a rep. Jump as quickly as you want, but keep your pelvis steady and don't let your booty rise toward the ceiling.
  • Do a total of 15 reps.

  • Come back into plank. With your core engaged, bring your right knee forward under your chest, with the toes just off the ground. Return to your basic plank. Switch legs, bringing the left knee forward.
  • Keep switching legs and begin to pick up the pace until it feels like running in place in a plank position.
  • Do 15 reps.
