WE HAVE TO BOUND LATERALLY AND COME TO A NICE STOP. WE’LL JUMP TO THE THOUGHT AND THEN TWIST THOSE FEET AND BODY AT THE SAME TIME. THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO NOT ONLY GET MY AGILITY, BUT TO ALSO WORK ON MOBILITY AS WELL. ALL OF THESE THINGS HELPING TO INCREASE OUR HEART AND MY OVERALL CARDIO RESPIRATORY ALHETH. LASTLY, I WANT TO BOUND FORWARD, SHOWOU Y GUYS SOME LOVE, AND GO BA.CK ONCE AGAIN, BOUNCE BACK, SHOW YOU LOVE, AND DROP BACK. THERE YOU GO. JENNIFER: YOU’RE THE BEST LONG JUMPER EVER. BACK IN THE OLDEN DAYS, THEY USED TO SAY — YOU KNOW, BACK WHEN I WAS YNGOU — YOU HAD TO WATCH YOUR COUNT AND YOUR BEATS HAD TO STAY ABOVE SO MANY PER MINUTE.
