Quick clip for #tbt 😏 from early February

Anonymous said: Thanks,I'll try that! :) do you have any tips on how to get my front leg higher on leaps?

Core strength and quad strength!

Do lots of ab work - crunches and planks are great.

For quad strength put a reel on and sit on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you with your toes pointed and legs turned out from the hips. Raise your right leg with pointed toes and hold it there for 8 bars, then without lowering your leg flex your foot and hold for 8 bars. Now move your leg to the right and point for 8, then flex for 8, then cross your right leg over left (but don’t rest it on your left leg) and point for 8, then flex for 8, finally return your leg to the first position (still raised!) and point for 8 and flex for 8. Now switch to the left leg and repeat. As you get stronger you can add extra sets of 8 bars. Just make sure your leg stays straight the whole time and you don’t let your back slouch. Do this exercise everyday and you will have quads of steel in no time. 😜

Hope these help!
