Proper Form: Start in a standing position with your feet hip-width apart, arms by your sides, pull shoulders down and back (without arching your lower back).
Begin shifting your hips backwards. Continue to lower yourself until your feel your heels about to lift off the floor. Try to maintain a flat back by bending forward at the hips. With ONLY a very brief pause, explode upwards through your lower body (pushing and extending your ankles, knees and hips simultaneously). As you jump into the air, keep your feet level with each other and parallel with the floor.
***TIPS- Attempt to land softly and quietly on the mid-foot, rolling backwards quickly towards the heels. Always push your hips backwards and drop them downwards to absorb the impacting forces.
Repeat until you’ve achieved your desired repetitions.Related image
