DEMOS

High Knees:

In basic high knees, you need to stand still with your feet hip-width apart. Pull your right knee towards your chest and keep it there for 3 seconds. Now move it back to the original position and then repeat the step.
Now do the same gesture with the left knee.

Calf Raises:

Stand on the edge of a step.
Stand tall with your abdominals pulled in, the balls of your feet firmly planted on the step, and your heels hanging over the edge.Rest your hands against a wall or a sturdy object for balance.
Raise your heels a few inches above the edge of the step so that you’re on your tiptoes.
Hold the position for a moment, and then lower your heels below the platform, feeling a stretch in your calf muscles.

Plie Squats:

Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart with toes turned out, holding lighter dumbbells vertically in front of thighs.
Keeping abs tight and torso tall, bend knees 90 degrees; keep knees aligned between second and third toes and weight in heels.
Press back to start; squeeze your glutes.
