Scissor Jump

Move Targets: Total body


Step 1: Stand with feet shoulder-­‐width apart and step out about two feet with your right foot. Note that your right foot should not be directly in front of your left foot. It should still be shoulder-­‐width apart. Place your hands on your hips or behind your head.

Step 2: Quickly jump up and switch leg positions while in the air, so you land softly with your left foot in front. That is one repetition. Do as many scissor jumps as you can in 60 seconds.

Modification (Beginner): Keep your pace steady and hop rather than jump. You can also turn this into alternating lunges.
