10 Exercises for a Great Parent-and-Kid Workout

Stand with your feet slightly wider than your hip width and your toes turned out slightly.  Lower into a squat by bending your knees and pushing your hips back.


Lower your body towards the ground by bending your elbows while keeping your back flat and your body in a straight line.


Begin in a high plank position, then place your left foot directly under your chest while keeping your right leg extended.  To jump and switch legs, keep your hands on the ground and your core tight.

Mountain Climber

Begin by lying flat on the ground.  Bend your elbows and balance on your forearms to create a 90-degree angle between your shoulder, elbow, and hand on each side.


Slid your back down the wall slowly until your upper legs are parallel to the ground.  Check that your knees are directly above your ankles and that your back is straight. 

Wall Sit

Squat by bending your knees.  Your knuckles should be in contact with the ground, your knees should be parallel to the floor, and your bottom should be parallel to the floor.

Star Jumps

Maintain a tall posture with your legs straight and your knees loose but not locked.  Bend forward until your fingertips touch the floor.


Begin by performing a high plank position. Jump your feet to the outside of your hands, then squat down while keeping your hands on the floor.

Plank to Low Squat

Hold your hands on your hips or overhead and stand tall.  Reduce your hips so that your right leg is parallel to the floor and your right knee is directly over your ankle.

Alternating Reverse Lunges

Begin in a low squat with your hands on the ground.  After that, jump your feet back into a push-up position, complete one push-up, and immediately return to the squat position.
