Step 1: Start with your legs slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and arms at your sides.
Step 2: Bring one leg behind your other and tap that foot to the outside of your stabilizing leg.
Step 3: Swing the arms in front of that bent knee and leap the back leg to starting position while simultaneously bringing the front leg behind in a skating motion. That is one rep. Arms alternate as you switch sides like a speed skater.
Step 1: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, and extend your arms straight out to either side with palms facing down. This is the starting position.
Step 2: Jump, and cross your right arm over your left and your right foot over your left.
Step 3: Jump back to the starting position, then cross with the opposite arm and foot. This counts as one rep.
Step 1:Begin in high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Your body should be in a straight, diagonal line from your head to your heels.
Step 2: 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 alternating legs and pick up the pace until it feels a little like running in place in a plank position.
Step 1: Start in high plank position, but with knees bent.
Step 2: Keeping arms locked, knees bent and legs together throughout, propel legs up and over to right side of side of your mat.
Step 3: Then explode to the left side of your mat for one rep. Continue exploding up and over to each side for the allotted time.
Step 1: Sit with your knees bent, feet flat on floor, palms behind you and your fingertips pointed toward your heels. Keeping hands and feet planted, raise your hips off the floor and alternate, kicking left leg and right leg as high and as fast as you can.
Step 2: A kick with your right leg and a kick with your left leg counts as one rep. Continue to alternate legs for allotted time.
