Split Jumps

Reps: 10 per leg

The split jump is a heart-pumping move that combines a lunge with a vertical jump. With your front foot flat on the floor, bend your knee to a 90 degree angle, ensuring that your knee does not touch the floor. In a swift movement, push your body into the air and move your opposite leg to the front, bringing it to a lunge position. Keep your core tight and ensure a firm footing to keep a strong landing.

Challenge: Instead of 10 reps per leg, increase to 20 reps per leg.
