Once you’ve mastered the basic squat move, you can jump up to Level II with a bit of plyometrics!
The broad jump, as the name implies, wants you to broadly jump where no woman has gone before. Work on finding the sweet spot on your broad jump. Too little lean in the initial take off will not get you far…and too much will send you into a broad face-plant.
The Set Up & Execution
• Get into your squat set up with feet shoulder-width and slightly flared.
• Looking straight forward, initiate the descent by pushing hips back.
• Keep your chest and eyes up, get airborne.
• Reach full extension through the jump.
• Arms lead the direction of the body.
• Hips drive the move forward.
• Land in your heels and in perfect balance.
At the bottom of the jump, maintain a perfect squat form. Legs are parallel or just below with an engaged torso, maintaining its upright and stacked position. Your weight is in the heels and away you go!
So let’s make sure you get green checks on these key points:
• Synchronize your arm backswing with your hip squat.
• Focus on driving with your hips while airborne to get max distance.
• Reach to full extension mid-air, meaning your legs are almost straight.
• Heels lead the way down to the ground to land in perfect balance.
