|1||Squats||Position feet shoulder-width apart, hips back, weight in your heels. Squat like you’re sitting in a chair—knees shouldn’t go past your toes.|
|2||Squat Jumps||Position feet shoulder-width apart. Squat down keeping hips back and weight in heels. Explode up into a jump. Land in squat position and repeat.|
|3||Pushups||Place hands below shoulders with fingers pointing forward. Engage your core so that your whole body moves in one line. Bend your arms, lowering your chest to the floor. Push back up. Drop down to knees to modify.|
|4||Jumping Jacks||Stand with your feet together and hands by your side. Simultaneously jump your feet out wider than hips and raise your arms above your head. Jump back to the start and repeat.|
|5||Tricep Dips||Sitting on the ground or a bench, position your hands outside hips with fingers facing your body. Place feet in front, knees bent. Lift glutes off the ground or scoot off the bench. Now, bend your elbows to lower your body down and press back up. Elbows should stay pointing backward.|
