Split Jumps

Split Jumps is an advanced level cardio exercise. Start with your feet in a split stance, one foot in front of the other, and hands down to side. Drop down to a lunge position with the back knee down towards the ground while bringing your arms back behind you. Once in the start position, swing your arms up and use your legs simultaneously to jump in the air. As your jumping, switch feet position in a scissor motion so that upon landing, your opposite leg will be in front. As your return to the ground, drop your arms and bring them back down to your side and then behind you. Allow your body to make a smooth transition from the top of the jump to the bottom of the split jump to absorb the impact of the jump. Be sure to keep your back straight, chest up and look straight ahead to ensure proper back posture.
Once at the bottom of the split jump, jump back up returning your feet back to the start position.
