HOW: Start in a standing athletic position. Shift your bodyweight to one side, then jump forward and land on the opposite foot. Land softly and by bending at your hips, knee, and ankle slightly by performing a small squat on the landing leg. Stay strong in the hip, knee, and ankle as you land. Then, push off with that leg and land back on your other leg, where you started. Repeat this going forward.
FEEL: You should feel this in your glutes, quadriceps, and calf muscles.
COMPENSATION: Don’t let your knee cave in as your land, keep it straight. Don’t arch your back as you hop forward.
