Challenge Round

If this seems a bit easy to you, take it up a notch by adding some weight to the exercises. You can either strap some weights to your ankles or hold a dumbbell in your hands near the center of your body. For these exercises I would only recommend adding up to 10 pounds.

Exercises Explained:

Jumping Lunge:Lower down into a one-leg lunge with your right foot forward. Explode out of the lunge position, switching feet in the air, and land back into the lunge position with the opposite foot forward (your left).

Plie Squats:Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and rotated slightly outwards. Lower down into a squat, hold the position for 3 seconds, and then stand back up.

Side to Side Squat with Knee Up:With your feet about shoulder width apart and your hands interlaced behind your head, perform a squat. As you stand up out of the squat, bring your right knee up to meet your right elbow. Return to the starting position and perform the movement again but with your left knee meeting your left elbow.

180 Jump Squats:Perform a traditional squat but explode out of the seated position to perform a jump. During the jump rotate 180 degrees to the right. Repeat the exercise again while rotating 180 degrees the opposite direction.

One Leg Wall Sit:Stand with your back against a wall and your feet shoulder width apart. Lower into a seated position; while holding the seated position, kick your right foot out from under you so that your weight is supported by only your left foot, and repeat. One kick equals one repetition.
