Touch And Hop
Step 1: Stand straight with your feet apart.
Step 2: Bend your left leg a little and put your weight on it.
Step 3: Now, slowly lift your right leg off the ground, engage your core, flex your calf and bend forward with your back straight. Your right leg will swing back as you bend ahead. Bend so as to make your body parallel to the floor. You need to balance all of it on your left leg.
Step 4: While you do this, your right hand will touch the floor.
Step 5: Now quickly come back to the initial position while bending your right knee at a 90 degree and jump to land on your left foot. Simultaneously balance your body well as you have to land on one leg.
Step 6: Repeat this with the other leg after you complete one side.
