Grab a 12-inch box and perform box jumps. Hop onto the box with both feet and continue to hop down for 30 seconds. Repeat after a 15-second break.
Jump, Shuffle, Jump, Sprint - For height, begin with three squat jumps. Then shuffle back and forth three times at a ten-foot distance. For height, repeat three squat jumps. Finally, sprint back and forth 20 feet three times. Between each rep, take a 30-second break.
Shuffles are performed by squatting into an athletic stance. For 30 seconds, shuffle back and forth at a 10 foot distance. Repeat after a 15-second break.
Use proper form. Take time to learn how to properly perform each exercise. Lifting weights effectively requires you to move through the entire range of motion without pain. The better your form, the less likely you are to injure yourself. If you can't maintain good form, reduce the weight, or the number of repetitions. Remember that proper form is important even when picking up weights or returning them to the rack.
If you're unsure whether you're performing an exercise correctly, seek advice from a personal trainer or other fitness professional.
Please consult with a doctor before starting any workout or fitness program. This is especially important if you haven't exercised in a long time, if you have any health concerns, if you're pregnant, or if you're an older adult. Please speak with your doctor to determine the amount of exercise that is appropriate for you.
