General And Specifics

Starting Position

  • sit down on the floor
  • place the hands below the shoulders, the arms are stretched
  • angle the legs and put the feet on the ground completely
  • raise the hip a bit

Correct Execution

  • brace the abs
  • raise one leg quickly and stretch it out (the leg is in a 45 degree angle to the ceiling)
  • the body weight is on the hands
  • now push the other leg off the ground and stretch it out
  • lower the first leg at the same time, put the foot on the ground again
  • that means: switch the legs while jumping
  • the hip does not touch the ground
  • do this quickly for a longer period of time

tips for the workout

  • beginners start with a lower speed and without jumping
  • use weight cuffs or raise the speed to make the exercise harder
