Begin with a prisoner squat.  Stand with your feet pointed straight ahead and placed shoulder-width apart.  Bend your knees slightly and place your hands behind your head.  Squat down, bending at your knees and keeping your feet straight.  Keep your chest up, contract your glutes and press through your heels, extending at the hips and knees to the starting position.  Next, lunge forward.  Place your hands on your hips, contract your glutes and lunge forward.  Bend your front and back knees 90-degrees with your front foot placed flat on the ground and your back heel lifted.  Push off the heel of your front foot onto the back leg.  Return to the starting position.  Next perform power step-ups.  Contract your glutes and place one foot on top of the box.  Forcefully push off that foot into the air and land softly with the opposite foot on the box.  Forcefully push off the foot into the air and repeat, alternating legs with each step-up.  Lastly, perform squat jumps.  Stand with your feet pointed straight ahead and placed shoulder-width apart.  Draw-in your navel and contract your glutes.  Jump up, raising your arms overhead and land softly.  Repeat, spending little time on the ground.
