- Power Skip
Jump with the right knee raised to hip height while reaching your left arm overhead simultaneously. Skip as high as you could. Land on the ball of your foot and repeat the motion with the opposite arm and leg.

Start with a downward dog yoga position with your hands on the floor. Slowly swoop your hips towards the floor while your chest rises above the floor in a snake like motion.
- Squat Jump
This jump focuses on your legs the most. Begin by squatting like you’ll always do. Engage your core and jump as high as you could with the best energy exerted. Control the way you land. Stop if there is any pain in the knee.
