April Challenge Week 2:



How to do Tuck Jumps

Warm up first.

Then:

Stand with feet shoulder width and knees slightly bend
... Bend your knees and descend to a full squat position.
At the bottom of the squat, powerfully explode straight up bringing your knees toward your chest while in midair. (I like to touch my knees with my hands)
Release your legs, control your landing and descend into the squat again for another explosive jump.
Upon landing immediately repeat the next jump.

MODIFICATION
Stand with feet shoulder width and knees slightly bend
Bring one knee to your chest, touch your knee and release leg.
Switch legs and repeat.
You may add a jump with one leg at a time if you feel comfortable.
