Alternating Bench Jump

Step 1

Place a bench horizontally in front of you. Plant your left foot firmly on the bench and your right foot on the floor, hip-width apart. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Swing your arms and push through the heel of your left foot to extend your leg, propelling your body upwards into the air. Reposition your feet to land your right foot on the bench and left foot on the floor, hip-width apart, ensuring that you maintain ‘soft’ knees to prevent injury.

Step 3

Inhale. Exhale. Swing your arms and push through the heel of your right foot to extend your leg, propelling your body upwards into the air. Reposition your feet to land your left foot on the bench and right foot on the floor, hip-width apart, once again ensuring that you maintain ‘soft’ knees to prevent injury. Continue alternating between left and right for the specified number of repetitions.
