Calf Hops: Choose an identifiable spot on the ground or create a line with a piece of tape, rope or jump rope and hop forward over the line, and then backwards. Make sure to keep a little bend at your knee the entire time in order to absorb your weight each time you land. Try to hop as quickly as possible in a controlled manner.
Skimble is a really GREAT resource for exercise videos and pictures. Here is their version of the calf hop!
Here is your starting position. Notice she is on her toes and ready to jump across that line!
Here is the middle of the jump: nice and high, arms at your sides.
And a soft landing on the other side of her line.
Head over to Skimble, download their app – you’ll love it – and then get to hopping!
