Diagonal Bounding – Continuous

Diagonal Bounding – Continuous

  • HOW: Start in an athletic position. Shift your weight to one side.  Jump off of that leg in a diagonal motion going forward. Land softly with the opposite leg. Stay strong in the hip, knee, and ankle as you land. Then, rapidly push off with that leg and land back on your other leg, where you started.  Alternate jumps in that diagonal motion trying to minimize how long you stay on your leg.
 
  • FEEL: You should feel your hip, thigh, and calf muscles working. 
 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your chest up as you jump and land.  Land on the balls of your feet, not flat footed. Make sure to jump at around a 45 degree angle, not straight forward or lateral.
