How to Split Jump
Exercise Families: Cardio
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand on top of the step in an athletic stance. The elevated surface should be wide enough for a safe landing—there should be approximately 1 inch of space separating the outside of your shoes with the outer edge of the platform.
Spring in the air and separate your legs apart as your body elevates off the platform. Land softly on the ground with the feet split wide—your feet should be positioned outside of shoulder-width upon landing.
Without delay, quickly recoil, jump in the air, and return both feet together as you land softly on top of the platform. Continue the split jumps, pushing yourself to give max effort for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
Split Jumps will help improve your endurance, cardiovascular conditioning, and overall fitness. You should feel this challenging your glutes, hips, and thighs.
