How it Works

Everyone spreads out in the playing area, finding their own space.
On ‘Ready’, all players stand on one foot, hooking the other foot around their leg that is on the ground.

On “GO!” athletes hop as long as possible on the one leg.
When they put the other leg down, their time is up.

Once everyone has stopped, switch legs and repeat.

Applications

Strength, endurance, power, hopping

Modifications

Alternatively, when they are done, they can assume a different strength exercise (e.g. plank position) until everyone is finished, in order to maximize “playing” time for all participants.

Add music or a drum for players to maintain a jumping rhythm.
