Day 10: The jumping frog

Animals are a great inspiration for a lot of exercises, because they adapted to their habitat perfectly during the evolution. For that reason I will present a few – let’s call it animal exercises – during this year.

Today I chose the frog, which flees from his enemies with high and wide jumps.

To jump like a frog you start in a crouching position, just like a huddled frog, with the bottom as down as possible and the forelegs right in front of the back legs on the floor. Than you pull your arms up with drive and jump as high and wide as you can. In the air the body is fully extended and back on the floor you are back in the crouching position. This is an excellent workout for the whole leg muscles.

But be careful! If you repeat this exercise quite often, maybe you’ll have a muscle ache the next day.
