2. Dumbbell Split Jump
Hold dumbbells at arm’s length next to your side. Stand in a staggered stance, left foot in front of right. From a standing position, lower body into a split squat. Quickly jump and switch feet. Repeat, alternating back and forth.
3. Walk On Your Toes
Grab a set of heavy dumbbells and hold at your side, with arms extended to hips. Raise your heels and walk forward for 60 seconds.
4. Single Arm Kettlebell Swing
Grab a kettlebell and hold in front of your waist at arm’s length. Bend at hips and knees and lower your torso until it forms a 45 degree angle to the floor. Swing the weight between your legs. Keeping your arm straight, straighten your knees and swing weight up to chest as you stand up tall. Repeat.
5. Goblet Squat
Hold a dumbbell vertically next to chest. Pretend like it is a heavy goblet. Now, squat as low as you can by pushing your hips back and bending your knees, keeping your abs tight. Stand to starting position and repeat.
