To get your body warmed up and ready for exercise, try this Minion Zumba video first. It is a bit silly but lots of fun! 

This type of workout is called a HIIT which stands for High Intensity Interval Training. It will get your heart pumping and make you quicker and stronger. 

This video focuses on throwing and catching which will really help develop your co-ordination. It's amazing what you can do with just a tissue or some toilet roll!
