As you plant your foot on the floor, bend both knees at approximately 90 degrees. If done correctly, your front knee should be aligned with your ankle and your back knee should be hovering just off of the floor. This is called a lunge position.
- Propel your body upwards into the air. Reposition your legs to bring your feet together and land in a neutral standing position. Ensure that you maintain “soft” knees to prevent injury.
