You do not have to bring your knees as close to your chest as how you would in tuck jumps. Simply jump up straight.
When you jump, you might move from your original spot, or lose balance. You do not want to jump into your favourite antique pottery or bang your head into a chandelier. So please check your surroundings!
The impact from jumping will be quite great on your feet. Proper footwear will ensure that your feet has enough cushioning from it.
Avoid landing flat on your feet, because that will hurt and injure your back! Try practising your landing with easy jumps before doing the exercise itself.
Besides that, you can try jumping and bringing your knees as close to your chest as possible. Take a look at tuck jumps for more detailed instructions.
Do not be a couch potato anymore. Moving around is the best investment for your health! Try it out and tell me what you think of the exercise.
