At the same time, reach down with your left hand to knock on the floor. Repeat this movement on the right side and continue jumping from left to right. Keeping your hips and back low will train your core and target your lower back muscles even more.
Begin in the prone position by returning with one foot and dropping the knee to the ground. Have your arms in a running position and accelerate as you jump into the air.
