Box Jump – This One’s as Fun as it Sounds
Get a box that’s strong enough to stand on, short enough to jump on and wide enough where it won’t tip over. Face the box directly, far enough away where you can jump up on it without catching your toes on it and falling over. Bend your knees with your feet about as wide as your shoulders and then jump up on the box with some vim and vigor and then step off of it. Complete 8 to 10 repetitions of this exercise.
Step-up – It’s Simple, But SO Effective
This move has got a lot to offer because it is SO effective. It works virtually every muscle group in the legs and the body’s core muscle group as well. Locate a strong flat surface to step up on and the step up on it with your left foot. Bring your entire body up with your left leg muscles so that you are all the way up on the box or step, balancing on the same foot you started with. Step back down and then complete the same move with your right foot. Do 8 to 10 repetitions.
Single-Leg Hop – Not Quite the Bunny Hop from Back in the Day, But It is Close
Think like a bunny or a jack rabbit and get your inner hop on. Begin by standing on one leg and then jump straight ahead and land on the same leg you started with to being this exercise. Then do the same move with the opposite page. Complete this move 8 to 10 fifteen repetitions.
