The lateral hop is performed in an open area to develop lateral quickness and leg power. No equipment is needed to perform lateral hops. Beginners should develop a strong lower-body before attempting any plyometric exercise. Lateral hops will strengthen the thighs and reinforce proper movement patterns. Stability and balance are also improved.
