*Jump Rope: If you don't have a jump rope, you can go for the "Air Rope" version. Jumping in place moving your hands as if you were holding a real jump rope.
*Lunges: Instead of going back and forth, Just step back alternating legs.
*Star Jumps: Try jumping jacks or light jogging in place if the impact is too much.
*Plank with knee drive: Drop to your forearms and hold a conventional plank.
