1. Squat Press: This combo power workout move will tone your legs, glutes, and shoulders all at once! With medium free weights in hand at your shoulders, sit down into a squat. As you straighten your legs to stand back up, press your weights in the air. Complete 12 squat presses before moving on to jump lunges!
2. Plyometric Lunge: Jump lunges are great for knockout legs! Start in a stationary lunge, with your legs staggered and both bent 90 degrees. Instead of standing up and switching legs, put some power into your move by exploding up in the air and landing with your other foot leading. Keep alternating leading legs until you’ve done a total of 12 jump lunges on each leg.
3. Push-ups: Push-ups tone your entire upper body- arms, shoulders, abs, and all. You can do your push-ups in a modified position with your knees on the ground, or all the way up on your toes if you’re an experienced exerciser. Your goal is to do 12!
4. Crunch & Punch:This move is a fun one that will also tone your abs and arms! Start on the floor with your knees bent and arms in front of you like you’re ready for a fight! Crunch up, lifting your shoulder blades off of the ground. In your lifted position, punch one arm out in front of you, then the other. Bring your hands back in and lower back down to the ground. To make this move more challenging, hold a light dumbbell in each hand. Complete 12 crunch & punches!

5. Squat Jump:Squat jumps will pump up your heart rate, burn fat, and sculpt toned legs! Sit down into a squat and instead of straightening your legs at the top, jump straight up in the air and land back in a squat. Be sure to land with bent knees to protect yourself from injury. Go for 12 repetitions.
6. One Arm Row: Rows tone your arm muscles and your upper back, leading to perfect posture and sleek arms. Begin in a split stance as seen in the video demonstration and hold a medium free weight in one hand. Bring your elbow up and back as you tighten the muscles of your upper back. Lower back down and repeat, totaling 12 rows on each side.
