4 exercises/ 35 second work intervals for each / 6 second rest intervals between each / 6 full rounds
Set interval timer on your smart phone to 35 seconds, work with 6 seconds rest, and repeat. Complete maximum amount of reps for the given 35 seconds with each exercise interval in this circuit. Be sure to keep breaking to a minimal and watch form religiously with the plyo moves (jumping) to avoid hurting yourself! Complete each round 6 times.
From wide leg position, sitting glutes back (not down) into a low squat, jump up and spin around. Land on the heels to cushion the impact from knees and reach to touch down on the alternate side. DO NOT LAND ON TOES AND NEVER SHIFT WEIGHT FORWARD TO TOES. From there squat and spin to alternate direction and touch down to alternate side. Continue for the given time.
Hands under back to keep from arching, complete 5 single side scissor kicks fighting to not let the legs bend at knees, break out as you pulse the leg into chest as far as possible; breath out coming back to halfway point and repeat. Switch leg; repeat.
Start on all fours, hands and feet planted on ground hip-width apart. Do two push-ups, power hips up and excel legs through to hands, landing flat on heels (not toes) and perform two star jumps. Then come down onto all fours immediately and repeat the exercise combo for given time.
*star jumps: basically a jump jack but the legs both power up off the ground into a jump as you jump them out to the side
Pulse for 2-5 kicks per side (depending on your fitness level) without arching back off of wall. Hold for 2 counts centered before switching legs.
