Start on hands and knees, then alternate opposing arms and legs while keeping your back flat. Slow and controlled is the name of the game.

(Intermediate/Advanced) Essential skill 4 Jumping: Improves explosive power, leg strength, and coordination. In addition to sports, jumping will help you clear obstacles or help you grab items just out of reach. A good jump can literally be a lifesaver.
