1. Jumping squats
Begin in a standing position with your feet at hip-width. Then, do a normal squat, lowering until your thighs are parallel to the ground. From this position, you jump as high as you can, and land back with your knees slightly bent, and repeat. If you have sensitive ankles, use ankle sleeves when doing an exercise that involves jumping so you do not damage them!
You start in a standing position with your feet at hip width distance. Then, you take a big step forward with one foot, and lower yourself until the leg that is forward has the thigh parallel to the ground, and the leg behind has the knee touching the floor. Then you go back to the initial position and repeat. Remember to protect your knees when doing this exercise using knee sleeves!
You begin by laying on your back with your arms on either side of your body and your knees bent with your feet flat on the ground. Then, you raise your hips, maintaining your shoulders, arms and both feet on the ground and hold for 30 seconds. Slowly lower your hips and repeat.
4. Step ups
Use a chair, bench, wooden box, or even stairs. Stand straight in front of the object you will be using. Then, put one foot on the object and use that leg to press onto the object and bring your other leg next to it, so that you end up standing on top of the object. Lower one leg back to the ground and then the other so that you are back in the starting position and repeat.
5. Jumping Jacks
You begin by standing straight with your arms by your sides. Then, you jump, spreading your legs to shoulder width as well as lifting and spreading your arms above your head as well. Jump again to the starting position and repeat.
