Step 1: Stand with knees slightly bent and hands at chest height.
Step 2: Drop the hips as if you are going to sit in a chair and lower the body until your thighs are parallel to the ground. The Link™ stays at the chest during the squat.
Step 3: Push through the balls of the feet and reverse the motion by extending through the hips. Simultaneously extend the elbows to straighten the arms during the upward movement.
Step 4: As full body extension is reached, jump up and out, following the hands with the body.
Step 5: Land is squat position and return hands to chest height.
Tips: Focus on the transfer of momentum from the legs, to the core, to the upper body and finishing with the whole body in the air. Then, prepare to land soft and do it all again.
Link™ to Exterior: Handles or middle of the Link™ held in hands. Hands resting at chest
