  • The first movement is to jump into the air, with back straight, legs spread out and arms raised above the head so the hands touch or come as close together as physically possible.
  • After landing with feet spread out, the participant must jump up so that the feet come together again and the arms return to the sides upon landing, i.e., the body must return to the start position.
