Hop Overs

To do the Hop Over, you need a box, bench, punching bag or any other object you can place your hands on and jump over.

Stand to one side of the bag or bench with your feet together. Place your hands down on the bag, and putting weight on your hands, jump your feet over the bag to the other side.

Keep your feet together as you jump.

As soon as you land, jump your feet back over the bag. Continue to do quick hops back and forth over the bag using the support of your hands.

Move as quickly as possible, hopping back and forth.

Beginners may need to jump one foot over at a time or even have their hands up on something, but not actually jump over anything so that they don’t have to jump more than an inch or two off the ground.
