Start by warming up and doing a light stretch.

1) Box Jump

Stand facing a box or step, feet shoulder width apart in a slight squat position and hands at your sides.

Next, jump onto the step or box using your arms to propel you. Step down and return to starting position. Do 15 reps.

2) Up and Down Plank on Step/Box

Get into a plank position a few inches from the step or box.

Place right hand on top of the box…then left hand, body aligned from head to heels.

Return hands to starting position and repeat. Do 15 reps.

3) Plank Jack

Get in a beginner modified plank position.

Tighten your core and glutes and hop feet out wide. Then hop feet back to starting position and repeat. Do 15 reps.

4) Front/Side Lunge with Medicine Ball

Hold a medicine ball in front of you at shoulder height in a front lunge position.

Step back upright still holding ball out in front of you and then switch to a side lunge with opposite leg. This should be a smooth and controlled movement. Switch legs and repeat. Do 10 reps on each side.

5) Squat Knee Up

Start in a seated squat position.

Then, as you come up bring one knee up to chest level, crunching your arms and abs. Switch and do opposite side. Do 10 reps per side.
