This is a plyometric take on the single-leg deadlift. This move will tone your glutes, hamstrings, quads and calves as well as improve your balance and cardio endurance.
1. Start by standing with your feet together. Engage your left leg by shifting your weight onto it.
2. Tighten through your core and bend forward to touch your left toe with your right hand, extending the right leg behind you so that your body resembles a T shape (not a broken umbrella).
3. Keeping your balance, bring yourself back towards the original standing position and continue to drive your right knee up into a jump.
4. Land softly and repeat on the same leg for 10 to 15 reps before switching sides.
