How to correctly perform each exercise
Stand tall with arms at your sides. Bend your knees just slightly. Jump up while at the same time spreading your legs wide and bringing your arms over your head. Jump back at starting position. That’s one jumping jack.
Stand tall with feet shoulder width apart or slightly wider. Feet slightly pointing outwards. Sit down your lower body just as you were to sit down on a chair. Keep heels on the ground. Keep your back straight in a neutral position. Keep your abs tight. Stand back up in a controlled slow manner. That’s one squat.
Stand tall, legs shoulder width apart. Keep your arms bend at your sides as they are when running. Kick your heels toward your glutes (as if you were to kick yourself in the butt), one leg at a time.
Start by laying down on the floor, face facing the ground. Palms open and on the ground, shoulder width apart or even wider. Balls of the feet are touching the ground. Push yourself up while keeping the body in a straight line and firm. Lower yourself back down. That’s a push up.
