General And Specifics

Starting Position

  • stand upright
  • the feet are shoulder width apart
  • bend one leg and guide it back
  • tilt the upper forward a bit, the back is straight
  • arms are bent
  • hold the head up during the exercise

Correct Execution

  • jump to the side as far as possible and land on the other leg
  • gain momentum with the arms, they also help you to keep the balance
  • now, the free leg is bent a bit
  • shortly rest it on the floor, then jump back again
  • the upper body is tilted forward a bit while you land, this makes the motion dynamic
  • repeat the exercise for one minute, to activate your circulatory system
