Advanced: 3x 60 seconds each leg

Split Squat

You will start in a single leg squat position with your right knee bent and forward and your left leg bent and behind you. Jump up and land in a squat position on the same legs. No need to alternate until the clock runs out. Switch to the other side once the 30 seconds (for moderate workout) is up.
