    If I knew what any of those meant it would be great, I figure press ups are the equivalent of pushups, dorsal raises maybe hindu pushups, I think the star jumps are jumping jacks, but I got the situps, though.

    V sit ups are where you sit up and raise your legs, so you make a V with your body. Uber hard. Toe touch, self-explanatory, squat thrusts are jumping squats I assume, burpees, pike jumps, and tuck jumps I don't know.

    Aren't burpees and squat thrusts the same thing?
