- Bending at the hips, knees and ankles, push through the balls of your feet, predominantly using your right leg to propel your body upwards and to your left, extending your legs beneath you. Land softly on your left leg and control the movement by extending your right leg behind you for balance.
- Perform the same movement, this time jumping from your left leg and landing softly on your right leg with your left leg extended behind you to maintain control and balance. You should feel tension in your glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, and core throughout this movement. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
