Bodyweight Exercise Series: Squat Jumps

Posted Jan 05 2010 3:18pm
Use the bodyweight squat jump exercise to better sculpt your body and burn more fat and calories during your workout. Squat jumps remain one of the best exercises to burn fat and help you lean and tone your body because of the high intensity.

If you're having trouble toning your butt, hips and thighs then you need to do more squat jump exercises in your workouts.

If you are into sports, squat jumps will also help to increase your speed and power for sports like track and field, soccer, lacrosse, tennis and basketball.

To do the squat jump, descend into your squat, swing your arms back and forward and jump up explosively (reaching upward with your arms) and repeat for the required repetitions.

It is important to learn proper jumping and landing techniques before doing squat jumps. Read this post about jumping and landing techniques. If you have knee and low back problems, high-speed squat jumps are not for you.
