How to: Air Skipping
- Stand with both feet on the floor, close together with your arms extended by your sides. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and brace your core. Bend at the hips, knees and ankles and quickly perform a very low jump off the ground, ensuring that your legs remain extended and your feet are pointed down slightly. Land softly on the midsoles of your feet and keep your knees slightly bent at all times.
- At the same time as your jump, perform an imaginary skipping action with your wrists and arms as if jumping over a rope. Maintain a tall, neutral spine throughout the exercise, keeping your shoulders pulled back and relaxed. Complete for the specified number of repetitions or time. Maintain control of your breathing.
