Not sure what to do? Keep reading for instructions on mountain climbers and more…

Mountain Climbers: Start in a plank position (top of a push-up). Then, bring one knee in and up toward your chest. Bring it back to start. Quickly switch legs and repeat. Soon, it will be like you’re jogging…with your hands on the ground.

Squat Jumps: Start with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower down into a squat. Then, explode through your legs and jump up. Land back in the squat and repeat.

Side Lunges: Start with your feet together. Lift your right foot up and out (about 3-4 feet away from you). Bend your right knee, so your body lowers down. Push off your right leg and come back to start. Repeat on that side, and then switch.

Burpee: Start in a standing position. Then crouch down, and put your hands on the ground on either side of your legs. Do a little jump, and pop your legs straight out behind you. Next, do a push-up. Then hop your legs back in to your chest. Finally, jump up to a standing position, raising your arms straight above your head like you’re reaching for the sky.

High Knees: Start standing up, with your feet together and with your arms at your side. Bend your elbows, so your arms make an “L” shape.” Lift one knee up, attempting to touch your arms. Lower down. Repeat on the other side, until you are jogging in place with your knees popping up.

Wall Sit: Walk over to a blank wall, and put your back against it. Walk your feet about two feet in front of you. Lower down, so you’re sitting against the wall (your thighs should be parallel to the floor and your knees should be over your ankles). Hold.
