Push-ups
  • Knee-to-Floor Walking Lunges (+10pts)

    Take a step forward with your right foot, lowering your body until your right knee gently touches the floor. Ensure your left knee is just above the ground. Push off your right foot and bring it back to the starting position. Repeat on the other leg.

  • Half Walking Lunges

    For half walking lunges without the knee touching the floor, begin by standing upright. Step forward with your right foot, lowering your body but stopping before your right knee reaches the floor. Ensure your left knee is slightly above the ground. Push off your right foot and bring it back to the starting position. Repeat the movement with your left leg.
