A full-body exercise that requires no equipment and can be performed anywhere. It is great to get the heart pumping and also strengthens the legs and glutes.

1. Stand with the feet shoulder-width apart.
2. Squat down as if you were performing a normal squat.
3. Engage your core and jump in the air explosively.
4. On landing, lower body back into the squat position – that is one rep
5. Be careful to land with control and if there is any pain in knees, stop immediately.
