1) Jog : in one place for 3 minutes

2) Jumping jacks: 25 repeats

When landing, bend your knees slightly to reduce the impact on knee joints.

3) Crunches : 15 repeats

Lie flat on your back with your knees bent. Place your hands behind your head with elbows pointing outwards. Support your neck with your hands. Keep your neck in a straight line with your spine. Flex your waist to raise the upper torso from the mat. Lower yourself until the back of your shoulders touches the mat.

Muscle worked: rectus abdominis

4) Hip Bridges : 10 repeats

Lie on your back. With your hands at a 90 degree angle to the floor, lift your body off the floor to form a straight line, a sort of a bridge, from the shoulders to the knee. The position should resemble a table - your hands and legs as the legs of the table and your upper body to your knees as the surface. Hold this position for two seconds. Squeeze your gluteus (butt muscles) and then lower yourself.

Muscle worked: Lower back, hamstrings and gluteus.

Muscle worked: lower abs and obliques.

7) Mountain climbers : 1 minute

Get your hands and knees and raise your knees like a starting block sprinter. Run in that position, supporting your upper body with the palms of your hands. Keep your back straight.

Muscle worked: triceps, deltoid muscle, gluteus, quards, hamstrings, calves.

8) Push - ups : 15 repeats

Muscle worked: triceps, deltoids, pectorals.

9) Squat thrusts: 1 minute

Stand straight. Now, drop to a crouch position. Immediately thrust your legs out straight behind on your toes, in push up position, now jump to pull legs back to the chest, in crouching position, then stand up straight,

Muscle worked: arms, legs, chest, and lower back.
