  • 3-step challenge: You will test your ability gain distance in your momentum by taking only 3 steps and then jumping as far as you can. 

Section 3: Partner stretches 

  • Lay on the rock stretch for 10 seconds – Have one partner curl up into a ball on the floor. The other partner will sit facing away from them. Then lean back and stretch out over your partner’s back.
  • Laying hip stretch 10 seconds – One partner will lay on their back with arms extended to the side, feet together and straight. Then bend one knee and place it across your body. Your partner will place one hand on your opposite shoulder, holding it to the floor. The other hand will gently press on the bent knee until it touches the floor on the right side.
  • Rocking straddle stretch for 10 seconds – Sit facing each other in the straddle stretch position. One partner will place their feet on the ankle or inside of the knee of their partner and then hold hands. Rock slowly back and forth holding for a few seconds.
  • Kicking stretch for 10 seconds – Face your partner while kneeling. Have your partner place their foot sideways on your right shoulder with their toes behind your neck. Then grab their hand. Slowly stand up until they say “stop” and hold
