This exercise helps to do the step right. Raise your leg near to the obstacle, go over the obstacle and stretch the leg near to the obstacle. Just like the step during the arm swing. All the movements are using dang stretching, no jumping at all. When you raise your leg the foot should be above the knee touching the thigh. The obstacle position is slightly above the knee hight. Well, at the beginning could be a bit lower. Remember, no jump!

Again, no jumping, use the dang tension and stretch to move. The legs are connected, not two legs independent movement. 04
