1. Lateral Jumps

  • For starters, set the angles of the side jump 6 inches further than shoulder width.  (As you become more familiar with the equipment, the exercises become progrssively more aggressive by increasing the distance between angled platforms.)
  • With the left foot on the horizontal platform place the right foot on the right angle platform keeping your knee bent to propel your left foot and body center to the left angles platform.
  • Rebound by bringing your right foot next to your left foot, bending your left knee to propel your body center to the right side.
  • Rebound from the right side to the left by bringing your left foot next to your right foot, your right knee bent to propel your left foot and body weight to the left side.
  • Work up to sets of 10 (each leg - meaning 20 straight jumps)
2. Cross Over Steps
  • With both feet shoulder width apart cross your left foot over your right foot to the right platform.
  • Place your right foot on the platform, then step with your left foot in the area between the boxes.
  • Cross your right foot over your left foot to the left platform.
  • Place your left foot on the platform, then step with your right foot in the area between the boxes.
  • Start with the boxes relatively close to practice the footwork, then move them further and further apart to lengthen your cross over jump.
  • Work up to sets of 10 (each side)
3. Two legged Jumps
