  1. Prepare to jump

    Begin with your feet together and arms in the air in a V. Keep your back straight and your arms relaxed.

  3. Touch your toes

    Bring your arms out to your sides. At the same time, move your legs straight out at your sides, lifting them up until you can touch them with your fingers.

  4. Land on the ground
