Description
Stand over one leg and the other should be stretched out in the 45 degree angle behind and away from you. The leg under you should be net and the knee over the toe, not in front of it. Stick your bottom out to help get into the correct position, holding the dumbbells in both hands and lean over with your arms both pointing in the same direction as the leg going backwards. In a smooth jump bring the feet towards each other and land the opposite foot under your body and thrust the other foot backwards in a mirror image of your starting stance, allow your arms to swing with your body. As you land reverse the movement to get back to the starting position for one repetition.
