Keep your elbows close to the sides of your body, forearms extended straight out in front of you. Your palms should be facing downwards. Maintain a straight posture as you drive your knees up to the palms of your hand, alternating each leg as you do so. Attempt to make as little noise as possible throughout the movement. Your legs should be moving quickly and landing softly.

Plie Squat Reach and Jumps

Begin with your feet turned slightly outward and your legs a bit further apart than the width of your hips. Squat down and lightly touch both arms to the ground, in between your feet. Bring your body out of the squat, making a jump as you ascend. Your arms should reach and extend past your head as you jump.

Maintain a slight bend in the knee of your standing leg. Reach your hands up and overhead. Keep your back flat as you reach your arms down towards your toes. Your standing thigh should almost be parallel with the ground, and the raise leg should extend straight and back behind you. Bring the raised leg back to standing position, and hop upwards while extending both of your arms. Land lightly on your feet and keep the movement controlled, attempting to minimize any wobbling or imbalances that occur.
