Standing behind the step for DOUBLE JACKS. Step up with the right then left foot to stand on top, then do TWO jumping jacks on top of the step, finish by stepping down with the right then left foot. You can make this harder by jumping up and down.
Static SPLIT SQUAT next. Place the lead leg on the step then step the other leg all the way back resting on the ball of the foot. Bend both knees so the thigh drops just below parallel to floor. Extend knee to starting position. Harder. place the lead leg in FRONT of the step with resting leg ball of the foot on the step behind you.
Finishing with a bang and BURPEES with PUSH UP and JUMP UP! Standing behind the step, bend over and place hands on top of the step and jump back into a plank. Perform one push up, then jump the feet in. Stand up and then jump up on to the top of the step, jump down and repeat.
Then repeat doing the exercises leading on the left leg this time until your eight minutes is up. Or continue for two rounds of work at 16 minutes, etc.
