Hold the barbell in between both legs, while keeping your back straight and your chest up. This move works your quads, hamstrings, glutes and calves.

Lateral Squat Jumps

For beginners, do 10 jumps.

This final move will definitely get your heart rate high. Place your barbell on the ground and jump from one side to the other. Be sure not to rush through this move and remember to stabilize yourself before jumping over to the other side.

This is a great way to strengthen your glutes, quads and hamstrings.
