Some points:


✅ Warm-up & cool down

✅ Keep your core engaged throughout each exercise

✅ Planks – head, neck & spine in alignment. Keep knees on the floor if too difficult. On the side plank rotate your torso downwards and reach under your body with your right arm.

✅ Try to land softly on the jumping lunges – use the front foot to power up.

✅ Side Lunge – Sink into the hip of the lunging leg, activating the glute to power up – add in a good hop to increase intensity.

✅ Do half burpee if you don’t want to bring chest to the floor.
