3 Cone Lateral To Forward Bound (or 3C2F) is a type of lateral bound exercise. It involves moving your body from one side to another while keeping your feet on the ground. You are not allowed to move any part of your body other than those which are touching the floor or the wall. If you do so, you will fall out of the exercise and possibly hurt yourself.
The purpose of this exercise is to improve balance and coordination. The exercises are often used in gymnastics classes because they require less strength than traditional forms of lateral bounding such as the back handspring. They can also be useful when working on balance skills during activities like walking or driving a car.
There are two types of 3C2F: front and rear. Front and rear means that the exercises involve moving from one side to the other while staying on the same side. For example, if you were doing a front lateral bound, you would stay on your left foot and move over to your right foot before returning to your original position.
Rearward bounding involves moving from one side to the other while remaining off of both sides at once.
In addition to being useful for improving balance, lateral bounding exercises can also increase flexibility in various joints. For this reason, they are often used in stretching routines and warmup exercises.

Forward bounding is a specialized type of bounding in which you move your body laterally by hopping forward. This can be done to the front, back, or side. It is most commonly used during specific sports such as American football, rugby, soccer, field hockey, and lacrosse.
It is also the primary form of locomotion for kangaroos.

This is a great tool for those looking to improve their fitness, flexibility, and coordination. Give this 3C2F a try if you want to get started today!
