Starting position

Stand up straight with your feet in a wide stance, outside of your hips.


Keeping your chest tall, drive your hips down and back to just above your knees. Drive up with your arms, swinging them forward, to push yourself explosively off the floor. Land with soft knees and lower back down into the squat position. Keep your knees from caving inwards at any point during the movement.
