In This Series
Simmen's tip: 'The ligaments, muscles and tendons around your knees take a battering when you're in the park. To minimise the risk of injury you need to make sure they're as mobile as possible before you start jumping. That's what this move does - and as a bonus it also fires up the rest of the muscles in your legs and hips too.'
