PROPER FORM AND BREATHING PATTERN
Engage your core, open your chest and keep your back neutral and your knee joints loose. Bend at the hips, extend your right leg back and touch your left foot with your right hand. Exhale as you push through the heel to jump up, and bring your right knee as high as you can. Land on the balls of your left feet and with your knee slightly bent.
