Diagonal Bound

  • HOW: Start in a standing position balancing on one leg. Lower down slightly by bending your hip and knee to load your leg while maintaining good alignment, then bound forward and diagonally and land softly on the opposite leg. Repeat on the opposite leg in the forward by opposite diagonal direction and repeat.
  • FEEL: This should feel like a lower body workout, specifically your legs - your glutes, quads, and calves working to bound from one leg to the other and land softly.
  • COMPENSATION: Focus on good quality form vs. speed and distance with your bounding. You need good trunk position with slightly leaning forward and getting your butt back, shoulder stacked over your knee, knee bent but not excessively past your toes. Do not lean too far side to side, do not let your knee cave in, do not let your pelvis drop - it should be level with the ground.
