Move like an Animal

Find a large open space and move around the area as animals to get those muscles moving. Ideas for different animals: Bird (run with arms outstretched), Snake (wiggle on tummies on the floor), Bear (walk on all fours), Frog (squat down and hop), Elephant (with heavy stomping), Penguin (waddle with ankles close together and arms pinned to sides), come up with your own animals and movements for them as well.
