Want to get your blood flowing while working on your balance? Try quarter-turn squat jumps on a BOSU ball. Stand on the top of the BOSU with feet evenly spaced. Bend your knees and hop up, turning your body 90 degrees to the right. Regain your balance and hop back to the starting position, then hop a quarter turn to the left. Continue to alternate hops to the right, center, left, center, for 20 seconds, then march in place on top of the BOSU for a count of 16. Start slowly and mindfully, and be prepared to slip off a few times until you get used to the unstable surface.
