An explosive exercise for the legs and core which develops power in the frontal plane

  1. Again this exercise requires no equipment. it basically involves jumping from side to side in a powerful manner. begin by standing on one leg, with the other leg behind and to the side.
  2. Now leap sideways, as far as you can, springing off your front foot and landing on the other foot. Remember to bend your knee as you land to soak up the impact. Also getting low allows you to balance better and jump further. 3. Ideally the landing and jumping should be on one leg but you can always dab your back foot down to aid with balance. Use your arms to create momentum.
  3. Keep side jumping from one foot to the other, get into a rhythm and try 10 jumps on each foot (20 total). Be explosive !
