Lateral side jumps
* Hop onto a box with left foot
* Hop onto right foot on box, left floor on floor left of box
* Repeat, hopping back and forth over the box
* Focus on quick feet lateral rather than vertical
The lateral hops provide an aerobic workout in addition to improving explosive leg strength. Take a good look at Tristan—he’s breathing hard in that photo.
Tristan hops back and forth thirty times. I did 15 hops, stopped briefly, and hopped another 15 times.
Here’s my workout yesterday:

Repeat this sequence for one set.
