HOW: Start in a split stance position with equal weight between your front leg and your back leg. The goal is to push off of both feet to jump in the air. In the air, you will "scissor" and switch your foot position so you land in the opposite split stance position with your back foot forward, and your front foot behind you. Land in control. Then repeat.
FEEL: You should feel all the muscles in your legs working to jump and land.
COMPENSATION: Land evenly with both feet and use both legs to jump. Do not loose your balance.
