In plank, walk hands forward 4 paces, back 4 paces, then lower down for 2 push-ups.  Repeat.

2. Reverse Grip Shoulder Press

Start standing with the bar held at shoulder level with palms facing you.  Perform 4 shoulder press jacks by hoping your legs wider than hip width while at the same time pressing the bar straight up.  Hop your feet back together, while returning the bar to the starting position.  After the forth rep, bring arms straight down in front, still holding the bar, and contract your biceps as you lift and lower the bar doing 4 bicep curls.  Repeat.

3. Down Dog Half Burpee

Start in down dog, do 1 down dog push-up.  Lower to plank, keeping your elbows pinched to your sides, do 1 tricep push-up and then do a 1/2 burpee by hopping your feet around your hands and then hoping back into plank.  Return to down dog.
