Clock-Squat-Jumps-John-Noonan

1)     Begin by standing in the centre of the clock face in a mini squat position with hips, knees and ankles aligned, and torso positioned in a slightly tilted forward position, and arms in the ‘jump ready’ upright position.

2)     Jump using your arms, aim to land at different points of the clock face moving through a mixture of rotations 45/90/180′s, both in an anticlockwise or clockwise directions.

3)     Finish each time in the mini squat position.

Build up to reps of 10 jumps.

TIPS

  • The aim is to land with quiet feet finishing in a strong, sound landing position.
  • To progress simply, jump quicker and challenge the quality of landing. You should drop into a squat as soon as you touch the ground, to manage the stress of the landing.
