Okay. So I'm ready for a jump board workout and we're going to need, you'll need a set of hand weights for this class. I'm using two pounds. You can use a one-pound, I don't, wouldn't suggest a three pound hand weight unless maybe some men might up to five pounds, but they'll be jumping and moving arm work. So I just think a little lighters. Okay, I'm fine with that cause you'll wanna watch out for your shoulders and not dropping the weight too low. Uh, all right, so we're going to get started and I've got a red and a blue spring on medium tension, um, on a balanced body reformer. That's what I have. I've taken off the arm straps and you know, nothing too distracting back there. I've got my jump board and we're going to go. So the intention here, I've done a few jump board classes and I'm going to build a little bit more today with some footwork patterns that have come from dance.
So where the legs are doing some different changing, um, beats. So the beats of the inner thighs and the legs, sharply changing positions. Uh, it's a great leg workout. You'll definitely get your heart rate up and get a little sweat going and follow along. This, uh, should be pretty fun, I hope. And Oh and then we'll jump in from our hands. I have some hand jumps. Plan, some jumps from stomach massage position, so we'll in for some surprises, we'll start again. Parallel feet all the way together. Just take an inventory across your body.
A lot of us have already warmed up our feet. I'm ready to go. I'm going to bend. I'm gonna start out with some small jumps. Sand two, three. So going in with the articulation of the foot and five and six. I'm doing 10 jumps, seven and eight. Feel that floor. Nine and 10 turned out first position. It's a small plot. He's V so with a lot of the other jump board workouts too, there's the, there's preparation videos on [inaudible].
Anytime you want the heel to get down to that jump board, you want to get it flat and flat. So if that means you don't come all the way very close into the bumper, that's where you need to go. You don't want to come all the way in, slam in and have your heels popped up. Okay, so I've lost my flow. Let's go for three, two. Now I'm turning hip with parallel for 10 jumps, one toe to heel, toe to heel. So muscular quality here.
I'm going to think a lot about using the back of my legs, the butt high hamstring and nine and 10 toes out in the top corners of the jump board using the quads to help extend the knee. So full lower body activation here. Seven and eight and nine. So we're going to do the basic pattern again. Parallel five jumps to three. Four turnout V for five jumps.
He'll stay together on this pattern here on this position. Four and hip with parallel and one, two, three, four, five in the corners. Sand five.
Parallel. Close, Small v Hip with parallel in the corners. Missed one in there, sorry. And Parallel Small v Hip with parallel wide V hip two three. I'm going to go one more round trip, parallel small v Hip with parallel and then I'm going to start going from one foot to the other foot. I'm in parallel. Still really enjoying the push off.
I'm going to go back to first position, eight times three heels together. That really strong connection up in the inner thigh. In fact, I'm going to have us keep going in the small v so let's start talking about the inner thigh. It's together. Every time you're up in the air, the back of the leg pulls up, the front of the leg pulls up, so changing the feet. Let's start working on our shoulders mall. It's French for the changing changing fields. So I'm going to land, I'm going to flow down for a sec. One foot in front of the other change. Put the other foot in front of the other. Change One foot in front. Push one foot in front. So again, keeping the jumps small for now.
Every now and again, check the hips. Didn't have to say it. And most of you probably know about the ABS. The flat here. Roll through those feet again. Are Your heels popping up? Try to stretch down. Let your ankles bend. There's a yielding.
I want to think almost like you're landing on a cloud.
So like really dynamic inner thigh
I'm gonna take four, three, two and one. Okay. Now I'm going to come up for just a second and drop my school. My spring two a green. Nick, go back down. Just kinda quick. Get back into the, so taser, the first position. Now why I've chosen to go lighter, slows the carriage ride down a little bit cause we're going to be doing some more leg work. So I want to have more time to fit that in. So let's go to Sean Tomas.
Remember it's just one leg in front. The other leg in front. Now we're going to take this front like beat back. Landon Front again beat. Let's do eight of these. Beat, beat
We're doing one beat seven and a. Let's try. Whoops. In a Sean's mind. Let's try two beats. So this leg is going to go beat, beat, land, and back. Ready? Let's give it a try. Pete beat Landon back. We've just switched legs. Beat, beat Landon back. So I'm alternating beat back. Front, back, back, front, back and beat. Beat, beat, beat, beat, beat. Back. Front, back, back, front, back, back, front, back, back, front. Back.
Last two and last one. And let's rest. Okay. Going into a little soft jump, one foot to one foot again. Now instead of just this kind of prancing, so this fine. I'm going to get a little more flick of my foot flick and flick and fact both feet can flick and flick and I'm in parallel and flick and flick and flick. So let's try that. Start a little drum. A first position.
So I'm letting my one foot drop behind the other ankle. Little soft turnout.
Now what I wanna do is just hop on one leg, jet Tay or this little [inaudible]. Excuse me. So Tay, now I'm going to make this flick a lot bigger out. Cut Out, cut out. I'm going to switch to the other side. Ready? Here I go. Now I'm going to flick out and cut out the leg that's doing the jumping I to make sure it's straight underneath me that it doesn't kick out. This one goes out. I can see it in my peripheral vision. I'm going to switch legs. Four of them.
Who one cut two cut, three cut four cut and switched. So it was really five oh well one and two c the energy out, energy in out and one more guys out and in. Let's go back to a little jog.
One more little jump. So I'm going to have this go back to the, so tasing first and I want to do a little Irish dancing. This is what I call it. So if I tick pick up my right foot, draw a line up to my knee, up my calf, I'm gonna add that little shone small in there. So up lands and back up lands and back up lands and back. And uh, so little rytary comes up to the knee lands behind four, three, two and last one. I'm going to make it a little bit bigger. Up and down, big up and big up and me and four really working my hip joints as well.
And three and four and close in parallel. Okay, we're not done. Not nearly done. Real quickly up, grab your hand weights. Come on back down. Now I want you to hold your arms up in a nice somewhat of a circle. Keep jumping. We don't want to slow down at this point.
Little circle of the arms. The shoulder blades are heavy. Feel the weight of the weights helps him down into your tummy. And your tummy onto the mat. You really on there. Okay. Turn out first. Now we're going to open the arms. Open the legs, close the arms, close the legs.
And this can be one of them. I'm dancing, I'm just doing it in a jumping fashion. And you'll kind of find, I think he'll get lost in this moment like I am now. Uh, you could just go getting a lot of cardiovascular benefit here,
The arms come down toward the mat but not resting. So if I hold the arms, my biceps are catching the weight and I'm going to add some bicep curl and curl three. So I realized guys, I haven't counted very well at all. As I said a moment ago, I've gotten really lost in this fun, but I did that. That was eight. I will promise to count eight more. One, two, three, four using those biceps. Seven, six, seven. Now we're going to go down for a little hoedown arms. Hoedown meaning I'm pulling my weights up like I've got zippers on the side of my waist and elbows up.
Second, first and second. How about a scissor first and scissor and this is interesting. And scissor improvise.
Now I will rest my arms.
Feeling sweats and a feeling that my just feel my heart just beating in there. It's rhythm. I feel alive.
Let's see what I can do without my sticky. I'm going to go to a blue spring, only taken away the green and the stomach massage position is gonna be the round back. So holding on, getting pretty close, put a foot on the board, the other foot on the board, I would aim your feet a little higher than lower. Most likely they're going to start to land down here, which we'll want to watch out for. Okay, so here I am up there. I'm going to bend myself forward. Definitely likes stomach massage. So coming forward now exaggerate for a minute.
Bringing your chest over your legs. When we jumped from disposition, it could get a little tricky and your upper back may want to go back. Not good against this impact. Uh, we're on a light spring, so we're fine. This is going to be about your abs and the leg relationship up into your hip and your low belly. Okay, so here I'm going to go. Now Push. I'm going to start kind of small jumps. Oh, there we go. So I've got to find my abdominals.
I am pushing my hands against the reformer bed. Now you're probably noticing my heels are not getting down on the board. No, they're not in this position. It's okay.
It's a hard one. Okay. And then from the hands, so the hands, we got to do some arm work in the jumping to kind of prepare for this. The way I like to do this, I'd like to get pretty close to the edge of God, about one of my hand lengths away. Or with this away I'm going to put my hands on the jump board, fingertips facing in and bring my body down to relatively flat position. Now if I lifted my tail a little, lifted my sternum a little, but I kept that awareness of the abdominal muscles, that's probably a better position than slouch. Okay, so again, finding that principle of extension. Now as we jump, think you're jumping from your lats, not your neck. All right, so it's great. There we go. Lats first through the elbows and hands
Now I'm going to do a little kind of a cooling down. The slowing down for a stretch. I like red for this. Now I'm gonna put my do the down stretch position. So I'm talking my toes, hands just right on top of the jump board. Longer wrists than flexed wrists and leaning the hips and I've drifted back away from the bumper. I'm fine with that. I just want to hold for a moment there. Now if I start to glide the carrot, I'm actually thinking most of the intention, intention happening in my hamstrings, still in the hamstrings, but now in situating a little bit of more upper back work and push, I'm to do five of those. Stretching the hips down.
It's trying to find that flat back position. Again, it's a grilly neck shoulder stretch. Haven't lost the integration of the abdominals. The tail is slightly lifted.
Rotate is if that spring is in my spine, really, I'm just turn around my central axis. This feels great to me. No great lat stretch on this right side and the other frankly, and then coming out of that wine
I'm gonna conclude this with just a nice s, you know, five or 10 breaths. Feel free to leave if you need to. Thank you guys for taking jump board with me. Maybe three breaths. So we're building our skills with our, our dance beats and all of our changes. Thank you very much.
