Description
Stand with your feet at shoulder width apart, with dumbbells in each hand. Keep your abdominals tight and push back your hips into a squat with your thighs parallel to the ground, or near enough, and bring your hands up in front of you together. Try to keep your knees over or slightly behind your toes to protect your knees; this is the starting position. Next, thrust up through your feet and glutes, using your arms thrust backwards as though you are pushing yourself till your arms are behind you. Your legs should end up straight and you should end up being pushed off the ground in a jump, point your toes and as you land return to the starting position for one repetition.
