Coaching Tips:  Focus on using a lot of hip pop to get the dumbbells up.  Keep the torso upright and save your low back!  Avoid ‘curling’ the weights and using your arms. Practice jump up/step downs unless you plan on competing soon (and you may want to spend a bit of extra time on Achilles mobility).
