Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Medium

Impact Level: High

Target Body Parts: calves, glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps


Start off standing upright with your feet at hip width and your hands up behind your head, with elbows out wide. From here, jump one foot forwards and the other foot backwards at the same time, then immediate switch legs front to back. Stay up on the ball of the front foot. Keep this movement going for the duration of the exercise.

Maintain and upright body position with your shoulders above your hips and eyes looking forwards. This is different to a Jump Lunge because you do not bend the knees as much in this exercise.
