The Jumps

Straight Jump: Hold the body straight and lift the arms above the body at the top of the jump. Bring them to your side when bouncing off the mat. Keep legs straight. Start with a medium bounce and gradually go higher.

Tuck Jump: Just like the straight jump except the knees are pulled up to the chest and the hands briefly grasp the legs at the height of the jump.

Pike Jump: Again using a straight jump, except as you approach the height of the jump, extend your legs in front of you, parallel to the trampoline with the arms reaching forwards to the pointed toes.

Straddle Jump: Similar to the pike jump except that the legs are spread sideways approximately 90° apart and the arms reach forward to the pointed toes.
