Squat Jumps

Squat Jumps (30)

 Start Position: Stand tall with feet shoulder width or wider apart.

  1. Sit back until thighs are parallel to the floor, keeping the back straight, abdominals tight and chest up.
  2. Position arms where comfortable as long you reach start and finishing positions outlined in the movement standards.
  3. Jump up explosively extending the hips, knees and ankles fully so body is in a straight line.
  4. Immediately squat as your feet hit the floor. This will both absorb the jump downward and also prepare you for the next jump upwards.
