- Start by holding StrongBoard Balance in front of your chest with a slight bend in your knees.
- Jump forward and squat as you land.
- Bring board down to floor and throw both legs back behind you, so that you are in a full plank position.
- With your shoulders directly over your hands, push from your feet and thrust your lower body as high as you can, pulling your knees into your chest.
- Kick your legs back out to plank position and immediately jump up to a standing position.
- From that point, immediately jump over the board as you rotate your body 180 degrees.
- The moment you land, go right into squat and pick up the board, bringing it to your chest.
- Repeat steps two through seven.
- Repeat for desired amount of repetitions/sets.
Tips: Be sure to brace your abs through entire set. Remember to breathe. Keep shoulders in your back pockets when standing. For more of a challenge, you can pause in squat position. You can also speed up your tempo and jump higher and/or add more kicks to your sets. Try this exercise for time. How many can you do in one minute? Five? Ten?
