5b Jog is a progression of 5a Walk exercise, simmulating natural jogging while pushing a trolley.
This exercise requires long and strong calf muscles (as practiced in the previous exercise 5a) as well as a well coordinated motor system.
5b is also special because of its free breathing pattern, its unique yet comfortable aerobic component and also because both lower limbs work in a natural simultaneous alternative manner.
Move - stretch - move - stretch.
Stand about 2 steps away from the bar, tilt the body forward and lean on the bar with hands.

keep the other leg extended with the heel touching the floor.

Continue breathing freely.
Land the foot on the tiptoes first.
The movement ends when the other heel touches the floor.
Continue breathing freely and alternate.
Find the rhythm and physically push the bar forwards towards the wall in front.
