So we're pushing up and down. Right here, pushing up and down. Very simply move, you're just rocking up on your front legs, driving your heels down, up and down. As we move and get more advanced we can start coming up in a pseudo squat. Up in a pseudo squat. What we're going is we're building fast twitch muscle power.
