How to Do Line Jumps
- Start with your feet together on a standing position.
- Jump to one side. Think of it like jumping sideways over a low fence. If you’re jumping to your right, your right foot should land followed by your left foot and vice versa.
- Alternate the movement to the other side with your opposite leg. Try to do the exercise as fast as possible with your feet touching the ground for short periods of time.
- Keep repeating this exercise within 10 to 15 seconds or for as long as you can.
You can also do front-to-back line jumps, in addition to side-to-side.
