How to Do Multiplanar Jumps
The multiplanar jumps should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the multiplanar jumps.
Beginning Multiplanar Jump
1. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your knees bent slightly.
2. Squat down to a full squat stance by bending your knees.
Multiplanar Jump Movement
1. Extend through the legs and engage the quads, glutes, and hamstrings to propel the body up and off the floor. The feet will be a couple inches (or more) off the floor when the legs are completely stretched.
2. Descend and manage your landing by moving through your foot (toes, ball, arches, heel) before returning to the squat for another explosive jump.
3. Immediately after landing, repeat the last jump.
Multiplanar Jump Benefits
The benefits of multi-planar movement go beyond only making your body stronger and more functional. These workouts can help with neurological efficiency as well.
