This plyometric move needs no equipment and will get your heart pumping quickly. It is a great move to use doing a quick circuit or outdoors if you have an even surface. If you have knee or ankle problems- this is not the move for you. Do this move for 1 minute intervals. As your cardio fitness improves, so will your ability to do these for longer!
1. Stand with both feet shoulder distance apart with knees slightly bent. With a cone or other marker, designate a spot 2-3 feet laterally (to one side).
2. Start with bent knees and jump up and over toward your marker.
3. Land with soft knees (knees slightly bent) and rebound back to your starting spot.
Tips: Keep your knees high, and always land with soft knees and with your knees and toes facing the same direction. Imagine you are jumping over some sort of knee height tightrope as you get over to the other side. Keep your knees behind your toes as you land and rebound back up.
Remember! If you have knee or ankle problems- do not attempt this move.
