Begin the Cross-Body Mountain Climber exercise by getting into a push-up position with your feet fully extended and your shoulders in line with the wrist. Keeping your core tight and take one knee and bring it to the opposite elbow, flexing your obliques at the end. Bring your leg back into a push-up position before repeating with the other leg. Alternate back and forth, maintaining the tension in your core the entire time. Perform 3-4 sets of 15 reps on each leg.
Start the Bulgarian squat from a standing position. Rest your back foot on a bench or sofa and step out with your other foot about 2 to 3 feet from the bench. Begin the movement by lowering your body down, with control, so that your back knee is almost touching the floor and your front knee is in a runner’s lunge. Then, use your weight to cross your front heel to return to a standing position, flexing your quads and glutes as you rise. Perform 3-4 sets of 10 reps on each leg.
For the Quad Press exercise, think of a half squat/half push-up movement. Lie on the floor and place your hands under your shoulders in a tabletop position. Next, turn your forearms inward about 45 degrees to form a diamond shape with the hands, and bend your knees but just above the floor. Keep your weight balanced between your hands and the insides of your feet. Lower yourself by bending your elbows while spreading your knees and keeping your back flat. Push your back up through your palms and toes while strongly flexing your triceps at the top with each rep. Perform 3-4 sets of 15-20 reps.
Begin your Jump Squats by placing your legs about hip-width apart. Keep your core tight and throw your arms and hips at the same time. Swing your arms forward and jump as high as possible. Land softly in a half squat before jumping again. Perform 3 to 4 sets of 10 repetitions.
Start this next move by getting into a side plank position with your bottom leg in front of the top one. With your top hand holding your head, perform a side crunch by bringing the top elbow toward the bottom knee. Flex your oblique hard, then return to the starting position before performing another repetition. Perform 3 to 4 sets of 10 repetitions on each side.
