REVERSE LUNGE HOPS . . .
This exercise will target the explosiveness of the entire upper leg, hip and rear end. Start with your feet beneath your hips, hands on your side. Take a long step backward (and slightly out), allowing the front and back knees to bend. Your front shin should be straight up and down in the bottom position. Your hips should be lower than your front knee, and your back leg should be bent, but try not to touch. the back knee to the floor- we don’t want you to slam it on the ground. Push forward from your back foot and drive your knee up, exploding into the air off of your front foot. This one will test your balance and your ability to explode off of one foot!
