A quick burst of explosive cardio that works the entire lower body!
Try to land with the ball of the foot and the heel at the same time.
Do not let the weight of your squat land into the outsides of your feet.
Press the inner thighs together when you come narrow and sit as deeply as you can when you go wide.More
What may not be obvious in this video is that you MUST MUST MUST alternate left and right and count each as one rep. This means you bounce forward right leg in front, back down on your belly and then bounce forward left leg is in front. You should be able to do at least 8x both sides. Work from there!More
Jump to the right, fall into plank and tuck right knee then left.
(This will remind you which side you are currently on so you don’t lose count)
Bounce up from plank into ready stance and jump to the left, fall into plank and tuck left knee before right.
Make sure that you are fully landed in your ready stance before you lift off in the opposite direction.
Speed is only good if you have control.More
Use your hands to propel your body sideways.
Keep your hips above your shoulders.
You can bend your knees.
Elbows reach completely outside the knees and in movement legs swing and land outside the elbows in their step.
Try to be animalistic in your execution of this move.
Glide effortlessly. Keep the belly engaged, and land softly.
Jump Squat with a Twist (of Lime)
Let’s take it back to Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons!
Nothing is lost from the fun times this jump squat variation brings.
It is just fantastic!
Don’t forget that twist at the top, reach outside of the knee with that elbow and get as high as you can from a deep low squat. Count only one side so that you can do both evenly and try for 3 sets of 20!More
