Pendulum jumps with arms
Jump side to side trying to cover 30 centimetres (1 foot) with each jump. As you jump move both arms up and down.
Start in the same position as the triceps push up and jump your feet towards your stomach by bending both your hips and knees. Jump your feet back to the start position by lifting your bum and jumping your feet back.
Plank with dips
Rotate your hips side to side and always make sure your elbows remain in contact with the floor. You should start with only your elbows and feet on the floor. When your hips rotate try to get them as close to the floor as you can manage.
Start with just your feet and hands on the floor. The closer your feet are to your hands the harder the press will be. Your hands will be shoulder width apart and you will lower your head to the floor and then straighten your arms. Your elbows will be pointing to the sides as you do this exercise.
Squat down as low as you can with your feet shoulder width apart. From your lowest position you are going to straighten your legs to raise your body upwards. Move as vigorously and dynamically as you can. This will allow you to jump as high as you can. Once you land absorb the impact of the landing by performing a squat immediately on impact and then repeat the movement.
Do each exercise in the exact order shown below without any rest between exercises. Once you have completed all 5 exercises rest for the time shown in the table according to your ability.
