Step 1: Stand with your legs a little wider than shoulder-width apart, and arms down at sides. Squat down, bending your knees and pushing your butt back as if you were sitting in a chair. Make sure your knees don’t cross over your toes.
Step 2: Explode up through the balls of your feet into a vertical leap with your legs and arms fully extended. Land softly and sink back into the squat position, keeping your knees softly bent. Never land with your legs still extended and do not fully lock your knees out.
Modification (Beginner): Rise up and stand on your toes as you extend your legs, instead of jumping.
