Jumping Lunge for Conditioning

The following is an excerpt from The Ultimate Guide to Bodyweight Conditioning.

The Jumping Lunge

To start with, from a normal standing position, step one foot forward, with a larger than normal step. This forward foot will be flat footed. Bend the leg as the other foot stays in place but raises up onto the ball of the foot. For the jumping lunge you’ll not want to touch your knee to the ground but keep it hovering over it an inch or two. This is the place you jump to from each side. Explosively jump upwards then switch the front leg to the back and the back to the front. Make it even harder by jumping high with each jump.

While simple in execution this is a phenomenal conditioning exercise.
