INSTRUCTIONS: Perform the following exercises in order. Do each exercise for 30 seconds, then rest. That is 1 rep.

SPIDERMAN PUSHUP

START: Assume a standard pushup position, your body aligned from ankles to head.

MOVEMENT: As you lower your body toward the floor, lift your right foot, swing your right leg out sideways, and try to touch your knee to your elbow. Return to the starting position, and repeat with your left leg.

SINGLE-ARM SWING

START: Using an overhand grip, hold a dumbbell at arms length in front of your waist. Bend at your hips and knees and lower your torso until it is at a 45-degree angle to the floor.

MOVEMENT: Swing the dumbbell between your legs, and then thrust your hips forward and swing the dumbbell up to chest level as you stand. Reverse the move, and repeat.

STAGGERED SQUAT

START: Holding a pair of dumbbells with your arms hanging at your sides, stand in a staggered stance, your right foot in front of your left.

MOVEMENT: Keeping your torso upright, lower your body until your front thigh is parallel to the floor. Raise yourself back up into the staggered stance. After 15 seconds, switch so your left foot is in front of your right.
