Create a table, to keep a tally of 5 different types of exercises

Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start doing star jumps, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table.

Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start hopping on one leg, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table.

Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start doing squats, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table into your table.

Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start doing rocket jumps up and down, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table.

Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start doing push-ups, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table.
