Progressions & Variations

Tips

Avoid landing on locked joints. Reduce injury by bending your joints to absorb the landing.

Do not allow the knee of the planted leg to travel out beyond your toes of that foot.

The exercise is meant to be performed with proper form. Stop if you feel your form starting to deteriorate.
