If you are looking for an exercise to get the heart rate up whilst integrating the whole body, the squat with high pull is a great one to incorporate. In the videos below I have demonstrated two variations on this (sumo squat with high pull and conventional stance squat with high pull).

This exercise integrates the lower body, trunk and upper body all in one. The weight you select will influence where you feel the work i.e. heavier weight will allow you to train the lower body more so, but may limit the ability to perform a high pull. Whereas a lighter weight may mean you can train for repetitions of the lower body whilst working the upper body.
