Push-up To Plank Jack: Begin in plank position and bend your elbows so that your chest is lowered down to the ground. Make sure that you keep your neck nice and long. Then, push yourself back up into plank position but this time placing your feet out wider than shoulder-width apart. Quickly bring your legs back together and then continue to repeat the move.
Jump Lunge Chop: Begin this move with your feet hip-width apart and your arms overhead with your palms facing each other. Jump your left leg back, bending both knees 90 degrees in a lunge position. At the same time, keep your weight onto your right foot and swing your arms down across the outside of the front of your right leg. Then twist your torso to the right side. In the lunge position, jump up back to standing and raise your arms overhead. Then, quickly switch your legs as you jump your right leg back and sweep your arms down across the outside of your left leg. Continue to repeat the move.
Speed Skater: Start off with your feet together, knees bent slightly and with your arms placed in front of your chest. Keeping your knees bent, take a big jump as far to the left as you can, kicking your right foot up behind you, keeping your right heel off the floor, and swinging your left arm behind you. Repeat on the other side of your body by taking a big jump to the right, kicking your left foot up behind you, and swinging your right arm back.
