5. Lateral Bound
Why It Works: The simple side-to-side jump builds lateral power in your legs and challenges your hamstrings while boosting your heart rate. Bounding also provides a bit of an active break after the run. This is much more effective than being that guy running in place at the crosswalk.
How to Do It: Stand on your right leg, with your left foot off the ground. Squat slightly on your right leg and use your leg and glute to jump laterally (to the left). Land on the opposite leg, maintaining balance. Hold for three seconds. Repeat to the other side.
