The Prison Workout

It's called a prison workout. It's named thusly because it can be carried out in a cell, or in my case, a cheap hotel room.
Begin standing. Quickly drop to a squatting position, and then kick your legs back and assume a push-up position. Do one push-up, quickly and smoothly. In a fluid motion, pull your legs forward into a squatting position, and leap straight into the air. Land squarely on both feet. Repeat the entire motion. Move as fast as you can without losing control or balance. Do 10 reps, and rest 30 seconds. Then do nine, and rest another 30 seconds. Then eight, then seven, then six, all the way to one. Always do descending sets. Never rest more than 30 seconds between sets. If it's too easy — it won't be — start higher. If you vomit, start lower.
Do three complete sets before breakfast.

That's called a burpee. :)
