Jumping jacks: start standing up straight with feet together and arms down at sides. Hop and land with feet a little wider than shoulder width apart, while at the same time swinging arms in an arc out to the sides and ending overhead. Finish by swinging arms back down and jumping legs back together to starting position.

Side-to-side skis: start in a standing position with feet together, holding arms in front bent at roughly a right angle in an athletic position. Hop to the left side with both feet at the same time, keeping feet together. Then, hop back to the right side with both feet at the same time, keeping feet together. Hopping to the left and then to the right is counted as one repetition.

Broad jumps: start with feet shoulder width apart. Swinging arms forward, make one big jump as far forward as possible, landing in a stable position with both feet simultaneously. Try not to stumble on the landing!
