Activity Instructions

  • Begin with nothing more than a line on the floor until you are comfortable with side-to-side jumping.
  • Get into a squat position and quickly push upward and sideways to land gentle on the other side of the line.
  • Repeat this back and forth jumping.
  • Keep your shoulders and hips square and facing forward.
  • Practice clearing the line with your feet higher and higher, land softly and spring back quickly.
  • Vary the speed and height of the jumps.
  • Once you are comfortable, increase the size and height of the obstacle you are jumping over.
  • Add a few inches at a time as you improve.
  • You can vary your landing so that you land and rebound on both feet at once, or land on one foot first and rebound with a short double-step.
  • Perform 30-60 second intervals, rest and repeat.
