Step 1: Engage the core. Initiate movement from the hips. Position the Link™ up the back side of the body.
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 shoulders during the squat.
Step 3: Push through the heels and transfer weight to the toes as your body rise. Jump in the air with the body full extended.
Step 4: As you land, transition directly back into a squat.
Tips: When jumping, the force comes from bringing those hips up. Don't forget that the landing is as important as the takeoff. Land softly and catch the weight in your hips, and get right into the next movement.
Link™ to Exterior: Handles or middle of the Link™ held in hands. Hands resting at shoulders
Stance: Hip width +1. Standing tall
