Lateral Bounding – Continuous

  • HOW: Start in a standing athletic position. Shift your bodyweight to one side, then jump to the other side landing with the opposite foot.  Land softly and stay strong in the hip, knee, and ankle as you land. Then, rapidly push off with that leg and land back on your other leg, where you started. Repeat this going in a side to side motion trying to minimize how long you stay on leg.
  • FEEL: You should feel your hip, thigh, and calf muscles working. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your chest up, don’t arch at the back as you go side to side.  Jump in a lateral motion, not forward or backward. Land on the balls of your feet, not flat footed.
