Lateral Jumps: Get Those Quads Burning

What you’re working: The whole body is engaged in this exercise.

How to do it: Starting from the standing position with feet a little wider than shoulder-width, squat down and touch the floor. Explode into a lateral jump moving to the right. As you jump, reach your hands above yourself. Land with legs apart and go right into the squat position again, squatting down and touching the floor. Explode back up jumping to the left and landing softly again. Repeat for two minutes.

Tip: To decrease intensity, replace the lateral jump with a lateral step. Also, if you cannot touch the floor without placing too much strain on your knees, simply go as deep as you can, reaching straight down with your arms.
