1. Jump squat

Start with your butt seated on the edge of a chair, this will help you perfect your squat form. When you're ready, straighten your legs and jump up off of the chair. Then return to your squat position, with your butt on the edge of the chair. Perform 15 repetitions before moving onto the next exercise.

2. Chair dip

This exercise will target your shoulders, triceps and core. Start with your back to the chair and your hands on the edge, shoulder-width apart. Lower yourself down to the ground and as you come up, squeeze your triceps. Repeat 15 times.
