180 Squat Jumps
From a squat position, jump up and twist 180 degrees in the air so you land (in a squat) facing the opposite direction. Do these for 30 seconds.

Plie Heel Raise
Embrace your inner ballerina with this one: Stand with your feet wide, with your toes and knees turned out as you lower down into a plie squat keeping your knees above your ankles, with your arms extended out to sides (need help balancing? Hold onto a chair). Keep your abs tight in the squat, and lift your heels off the floor for a second before lowering them. Do this 10 times.

Toe Touch Lunge
Stand with your feet hip width apart with your arms at your sides. Lunge back with your right leg, keeping your chest lifted, pressing into your left heel. Reach your fingertips toward your left toes and bend your left knee 90 degrees. Hold this for one second and return to your starting position. Do 10 reps, switch sides, and repeat.
