Challenge 3 - Speed Bounce

Speed Bounce

All you need for this week's challenge is a small space and an object you can use a small hurdle to jump over. Start by standing feet together, next to your hurdle. The aim is to jump by taking off and landing on 2 feet, sideways over the hurdle as many times as you can in 30 seconds. If you land on the hurdle or move it as you jump over it, just reset the hurdle and carry on. 


Make it harder

  • Use a slightly higher hurdle
  • Try the challenge with a hop


Make it easier

  • Use a slightly smaller hurdle
  • Try the challenge by bounding from 1 foot to the other to get over the hurdle


If you would like to share your attempts at each challenge you can ask the grown ups in your household to film you or take a photo of you doing the challenge and then send it in to Mr Thomas at along with your score and possibly a write up about how the challenge went in your household.

My first attempt at the speed bounce using a trainer as my hurdle. A few of my jumps towards the end looked as though I wasn't going over the trainer so not going to count them - I think I scored 68. I will definitely be trying this one again!
