Exercise 2: Star Jump
Start in a 1/2 squat postion with feet together and hands resting lightly on your knees. Jump up and sread your arms and legs as wide as you can in a "star" shape. Focus on getting full hip extension and you jump as high as you can while "opening" up as much as possible in the air. Come back to the start position, landing as soflty as possible, using the knee bend to absorb the landing. To start, pause after each rep to gain control before progressing to continuous reps. As you improve your jumping and landing efficiency, move toward continuous jumps without a pause.
