1) The ‘chair’, followed by vertical jumps :

                        10 jumps each side. Make sure you land balanced and have a little break between each jump.

 

5) Muscle and back strength

30-second plank: keep the back flat, contract the buttocks as well as the abdos.

30-second dorsal foot exercises: with opposite hands. Tighten your arms and the suspended leg as much as possible and descend gently.

This circuit should be done 3-5 times according to your level, with a 30 second break between each exercise and 3 minutes between each circuit.

After this you will be in the best condition to try out the challenge and increase your chances of doing the best you can!
