Move Targets: Glutes, Hamstrings and Core
Step 1: Find a line or make your own by using a stick or your jump rope. Get it as close to the ground as possible so you don't trip. Get the feet together and bend the knees. Keep your arms close to your body. Begin on one side of the line, just an inch or two away from it.
Step 2: Use the bend in the legs as your energy boost to explode up and over the line. Keep your feet together so they take off at the same time. It doesn't need to be high, just wide enough to clear the line.
Step 3: Land with bent knees to absorb the landing. Both feet should hit the ground at the same time. If you're jumping quickly, you won't have time to drop your heels to the ground; you'll be working from the balls of your feet.
