Jump Squats For Stronger Legs

Jump squats are a combination of squats and a tuck jump. It can be a refreshing change in your routine compared to just doing squats and tuck jumps.

Steps To Doing The Workout Properly

  • Stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart.

  • Lower yourself into a squatting position. This will be your starting position.

  • Think like a spring and JUMP!

You do not have to bring your knees as close to your chest as how you would in tuck jumps. Simply jump up straight.

  • When you land, go back to the starting position and repeat this 8 times.

Things You Need To Note To Prevent Injuries

  • Look around you to make sure you won't jump into anything.

When you jump, you might move from your original spot, or lose balance. You do not want to jump into your favourite antique pottery or bang your head into a chandelier. So please check your surroundings!

  • Wear proper shoes.

The impact from jumping will be quite great on your feet. Proper footwear will ensure that your feet has enough cushioning from it.

  • Be sure to try landing on your toes first.

Avoid landing flat on your feet, because that will hurt and injure your back! Try practising your landing with easy jumps before doing the exercise itself.

How Can You Make It Tougher

Some of you might know the answer by now: hook your ankles up to some simple weights. This will give you an extra challenge when you jump.

Besides that, you can try jumping and bringing your knees as close to your chest as possible. Take a look at tuck jumps for more detailed instructions.
