40 seconds: Squats, then a 20-second rest.

40 seconds: Jumping jacks, followed by 20-second rest.

40 seconds: Push-ups, followed by 20-second rest.

40 seconds: Mountain climbers (bend over, place hands on floor a couple feet in front of you, put one foot in front of other, then jump up and land with opposite foot in front; switch at fast pace), then rest 20 seconds.
