The leap frog jump is another one of those exercises that might make you look a little funny if you do it at the gym. Embarrassment aside, this is actually a very good exercise to help build explosive strength and lateral jumping ability.
To begin the leap frog jump, squat down to the ground so your hands can touch it. The only thing you have to do now is jump out as far as you can. Try to land back in the same position and repeat. It’s not necessary to do leap frog jumps quickly. Take your time and focus on the form. You probably won’t be able to do very many, but remember, building strength and power is always about quality over quantity.
Before you do the leap frog jumps you should stretch out your legs a bit. This is especially true if you’re like me and you’ve had knee problems in the past. If the leap frog jump is too much squatting for you, don’t worry. There are plenty of other very useful exercises.
Sorry about the lack of a video. I’ll try to get one up as soon as I move back home.
