1. The Side Lunge
Stand sideways at the foot of your mat.
Align your feet and hips and keep your arms by your sides
Step out the right leg to the right side, as wide as comfortably possible, keeping your hips facing forwards.
Bend your right knee until your right thigh is close to parallel with the floor – keep your left leg straight, toes pointing forward.
Push into your right foot to return to standing straight and repeat 10 reps before switching to the left side for 10 more.
Repeat both sets 3 times, so 60 side lunges in total.
Tip: Want a tougher challenge? Try raising your knee to your chest after coming back to a standing position and moving smoothly into the next rep as you lower it.
2. The Star Jump
Otherwise known as a Jumping Jack, this high-energy move gets fast results!
Stand with your hands by your sides.
Jump both legs open – aim for slightly wider than hip-distance apart with a solid landing on the balls of both feet.
As your legs bounce out, bring your arms above your head.
Jump your legs together again and bring your arms back to your sides to complete one rep.
Repeat 2 sets of 10 reps to begin with and move to 30 reps as your fitness improves!
3. The Isometric Squat
Want something a little slower? Try this during the next ad break!
Stand with your feet roughly shoulder-width apart and clasp your hands in front of your chest.
Slowly bend your knees until your thighs are almost parallel to the floor, pushing your hip crease back as you do so.
Hold the position for as long as possible – aim for 30 seconds to complete one rep.
Start with 10 reps and build up to 30.
