General And Specifics

Starting Position

  • stand upright
  • the feet are together, the knees bent a bit
  • the arms hang down at the sides of your body

Correct Execution

  • bend the knees, until the thighs are parallel to the ground
  • push the butt to the back a little
  • touch the sides of your feet with the hands
  • stretch the legs and push yourself off the ground as much as possible
  • jump as high as you can
  • guide the arms up in a bow while you jump, the legs move to the sides
  • at the highest point, your body is similar to the shape of a star
  • while coming down, you bring back the hands and legs to the starting position
  • land softly on the balls of the feet, the knees are slightly bent, this absorbs the energy of the jump
  • go on to the next jump immediately, do several reps
