Frog Jumps - Plyometrics
Frog jumps (in Chinese: Wa Tiao) are jumps from a sitting position where you jump forward and swing up your hands. In the air the body has to be straightened from the fingers to the toes. Frog jumps should go as far as possible and not as high as possible. This jumping strength increasing exercise can be very bad for the knees. Especially when the frog jumps are done on hard ground or landed in the heels first. Frog jumps come from china and are practiced by martial artists, ski jumpers and track and field athletes.
