How to do Chase the Rabbit

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Medium

Impact Level: High

Target Body Parts: abs, triceps, shoulders, glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps


Start at the top of the push up position with your hands on the floor, arms straight and underneath your shoulders. Step your feet back behind you and lift your knees. Engage your glutes, tense your legs and brace your core to keep your body rigid. Then step your left foot up as close to the outside edge of your left hand as possible. Aim to put your left foot down flat to the floor.

Then press into your hands, shift your weight forwards and jump switch your feet, so that your left leg jumps back and straightens. At the same time your right foot jumps up to land just outside your right hand.

Keep jump switching your legs for the duration of the exercise.

Make sure you keep your shoulders over the top of your hands and don’t drop your head down in between your shoulders.
