Choose a box of an appropriate height and stand in front of it, facing the box. Your feet should be shoulder width apart. Squat down and bring your arms back, then drive through your lower body as you swing your arms forward, jumping into the air and landing on the box, with your knees bent. Step down from the box, one leg at a time.

Why it’s good:

You can do this anywhere that you can find a ledge. From a park bench to the office desk, you can always find something to leap up to.

What to watch out for:

Make sure you land correctly, if you fall of the side of the box, you can get injured.
