How To Do The Duck Walking and Jumping Exercises

Question: Duck walking and the jumping exercises please...


For the duck walking, simply assume a squatting position with your knees bent and your glutes close to the ground. Walk forward (and eventually backward) on the balls of your feet while keeping your knees bent and your glutes close to the ground. I imagine it will be somewhat awkward at first, but just like anything else; the more you practice the better you get.

How To Do The Duck Walking and Jumping Exercises

The jumping exercises vary, but the important point is that I now do them for about 120 seconds straight. I usually start out with just jumping in place for 10 jumps or 20 jumps or whatever. I then start to go side to side with both feet over a line I have on my garage floor, increasing the pace as I go. I then sometimes do some deep knee bends while jumping straight up in the air or on a box or some other object. The point here is that pretty much any sort of jumping exercise is an excellent addition to any warm up protocol.

I would suggest that you start out slow and increase over time. If you try to duck walk for 2 minutes or so straight like I do right now, then it could very easily impact your training. I cannot stress this point enough.
