Side to Side Jumps

This are good for speed of movement and co-ordination. Basically, just put a marker on the floor and jump from side to side over it. To assist with being able to do these efficently and fast - try not to move your upper body too much just moving your legs over the barrier (a little like slalom skiing).

To increase the difficulty of the exercise either raise the level of the item you are jumping over or increase your speed.
