SIGNS YOU’RE DO­ING IT WRONG

Women's Health (UK) - - KNOW HOW -

You’re not us­ing your arms

‘As you squat be­fore you leap, bring your hands just be­hind your bum,’ says Sim­mons. ‘Then, as you spring up, swing your arms over your head. Fi­nally, as you squat on top of the box, let your arms come back down to help you de­cel­er­ate.’

You’re not land­ing prop­erly ‘You want to land softly on the balls of your feet be­fore shift­ing your weight back on to your heels as you come to a com­plete stop,’ says Sim­mons.

You’re too stiff

‘Start and fin­ish with knees slightly bent to pre­vent in­jury,’ warns Sim­mons.
