JUMP ROPE: a combination of regular, two-footed jumps; 1-footed jumps;

"running" jumps (where you are actually running in place "thru" the jump rope -

be careful that you are not skipping rope here, but actually running in place).

You can also jump rope from one place to another (end line to net) or jump

rope front and back or side to side over a line.

INTERVAL TRAINING: Interval training is an also an excellent technique for

increase anaerobic ability, while also slightly developing greater aerobic ability.

Intervals can be performed by running, on a stationary bike, or in some type of

body weight circuit.

Walk 1 min, sprint 30 seconds, repeat 5X.

Increase running time - walk 1 min, run 1 min, repeat 5X



GOING FOR THE BLOCK: Draw a line, or some other mark, on a wall equal to the

height of the net. Jump up and down quickly, with arms raised like you

attempting a block at the top of the net. Do this for a couple minutes (2-4)

keeping a fast pace. Now slow it down, by doing full jumps from a squatting

position with your backside parallel to your knees as you attempt the next jump.

PUSH UPS: 2 sets to fatigue

SQUATS WITH BODY WEIGHT: You can use an exercise ball if you have one.

Otherwise just do it stationary. Place ball behind your back and squat 2X15,

making sure your feet are far enough out so your knees don't go past your feet

AB WORK: Choose 2 (vary them) these are just suggestions

Crunches: 2X30

Stability ball crunches: 2X30

Roman twists with a ball: 2X25

Planks: 2X30 seconds working up to 2X1minute
