Crazy 8 Lunges
Start with your feet shoulder width apart. Holding a medicine ball in front of you, step forward with your right leg into a lunge position. Twist your upper body to the right. Begin with reaching across to the left side as if your arms are making an “8” in the air. As you twist to the left side, step forward with your left leg into a lunge position. Try 25 reps.
Squats with Jumping
Start with your feet together and your arms above your head.
Jump out into a squat position and bring your arms down to your legs. (These
arms are opposite of normal jumping jacks). Then, jump back into starting
position. Complete 25 reps.
Shape up like Jordin

Start in a pushup position. Lower yourself down bending your elbows, like a normal pushup. When you come up to the starting position, shift your weight to your right hand and rotate your body to the left. Extend your left hand to the ceiling. Come back to the starting position and repeat, only this time, rotate to the opposite side. This is one rep. Do 10!
Start lying face up on the floor with your arms extended

Get toned like Emma Stone
Start by lying flat on your back with your arms down by your
sides – your palms should be facing down. Lift your shoulders and head off the
mat and bring your legs up to a 45-degree angle. Make sure to keep them

exercise. As you’re breathing, pump your arms up and down 100 times. Then
Single Leg Stretches
Lie on your back and bring your left knee into your chest
while you raise your right leg to a 45-degree angle. Lift your head and
shoulders, and place your left hand on your ankle and your right hand on your
knee (both on the leg that is in towards your chest). Count to 2, and then
switch legs. Try 10-20 reps.
