Make jump squats a part of your exercise sessions. Why? You’ll get results…fast! As well, they benefit your entire body (including your posterior chain and core) and they are an excellent boost to your overall fitness.
How to do jump squats
Step one: With your knees shoulder width apart, bend your knees slightly, keeping your back straight. Squat down.
Step two: Immediately jump upwards off the ground. As your feet leave the floor reach upward, straight out in front, or with your hands on your hips, keeping your back straight and facing forward.
Step three: Land back in the position you started in. Bend your knees slightly and immediately repeat the second step.
