Having your legs in a standard lunge position, with both feet facing forward, feet shoulder width apart, jump vertically upwards whilst simultaneously swapping your legs around, so that your front foot is now at the rear, and vice-versa.
Focus on landing on the ground with both feet at the same time, lowering down slightly to absorb the impact, prior to exploding upwards and repeating the movement for desired amount of reps.
Concentrate on keeping your back straight and vertical with your head up throughout the movement.
