Movement Monday: Easter Bunny Edition

The Easter Bunny is lucky because he gets in a lot of plyometric exercise this time of year. Runners should hop too!

FLPT’s Caroline Varriale shares two exercises — lateral hopping and balance to balance lunge matrix — that are great for runners. Add speed or distance to your hops for a greater challenge!
