Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms by your sides. Push your hips back and bend your knees to lower into a squat and prepare for a donkey kick, placing your hands under your shoulders, keeping your arms straight. Shift your weight into your arms and jump up with your legs, kicking your heels in close to your butt. Land with feet hip width and jump straight up, pushing your arms behind your body as you jump. Land and immediately repeat as many times as you can until 2 minutes is up. If it's too tough to keep jumping for the full 2 minutes, simply stand up out of your donkey kick instead.
Active recovery: 1 minute (easy walk or jog in place)
Cool-down: Your active recovery period should start lowering your heart rate, but feel free to continue walking until you feel your breathing is back to normal. If you have a few extra minutes to spare, wrap up your workout with these five stretches.
