How to Do a Single Leg Reach and Hop
- Start by placing one foot forward. If you’re placing your left foot forward, your right arm should bend forward. Remember to keep your back straight.
- Bend your left knee slightly and extend your right leg to the back. Make sure your right foot isn’t touching the ground.
- This should be done fast: Hop in place with your left foot while bending your right knee forward to a 90 degree angle. When your right knee is up, your left arm should bend forward, and vice versa. Try to hop as high as you can and let your leg reach as far back without touching the ground. Repeat this move as many times within 10 to 15 seconds.
- Switch to your other leg. Do as many moves as you can within 10 to 15 seconds or for as long as you can.
There you have it! Try incorporating this move into HIIT exercise routines. Remember, if it’s not challenging you, it’s not changing you. Just keep going and you’ll get better!
