DescriptionStart in a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart and a slight bend in your knees. Your shoulders should be directly over your hips with a neutral head and neck position. Your arms should be long and by your sides. Your chin should remain tucked throughout the movement, as if you were holding an egg under your chin.
Evenly distribute your weight and grip the floor with your feet to create a stable position. Pre-tension your shoulders and hips with a good inhale and exhale, and engage your core. All repetitions should begin from this starting position.
Maintain a neutral spine as you begin to bend your hips, knees, and ankles. Lower until your legs are in a quarter squat position. Your arms should be long with a slight bend in your elbows. As you lower into your jumping position, allow your hands to travel behind your body. Your shin angle and torso angle should be relatively the same.
Begin your forward movement by explosively pushing through the ground to jump forward. As you begin to straighten your legs, simultaneously begin to swing your arms forward.
Land from your jump, evenly distributing your weight while allowing your hips and knees to bend to absorb force. Your landing posture should be the same as your jumping posture. Land under control while keeping your core engaged throughout the landing. Your bodyweight should be loaded into your midfoot and heel while keeping your toes engaged. Your knees should be in line with your toes and your chest should be ahead of your hips.
After landing, run backwards to your starting position.
Repeat for the required amount of repetitions.
