Squat

As your body becomes used to working out, you can really start to push yourself. I love a plyometric movement, where you add a small controlled jump into say a squat to really fire up the muscles, but there are many ways you can challenge your body.

If you have been doing our workouts, you will be familiar with these moves, but if not, take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with them before beginning the workout.

We will start by taking the first three exercises, repeating each exercise for 12-15 reps before continuing to the next exercise, until all three exercises are complete. Then take a rest of about 20 to 30 seconds before repeating three to four sets of this. Take a minute and then continue in the same suit for the final three exercises.
