Process

Step 1: Stand in quarter squat position. The hands are between the legs at floor level.

Step 2: Push through the toes and fully extend the body by pushing hips forward. Start to swing the arms forward while keeping the arms rigid.

Step 3: As the hands reach full extension, jump up and out to match the momentum of the arms.

Step 4: During landing, the hands should be on downward path to return to starting position and the body should transition to a squat.

Tips: The momentum is created from the hips and transferred to your hands where you reach for your destination. Don't bend at the waist and use your lower back. Keep a big chest and explode with the hips. Remember, when jumping the landing is just as important as the takeoff. Land softly and catch the weight in your hips, and get right into the next movement.
