JUMP­ING SQUAT

Irish Independent - Health & Living - - FITNESS -

This is one of my favourite ex­er­cises for the legs, bring­ing in some ply­o­met­ric move­ment with the jump. It’s a great way of sur­pris­ing the mus­cles. Re­mem­ber, the land from the jump should be light, not heavy, and you don’t have to jump too high — a small con­trolled jump will be fine.

1/ Start with your feet shoul­der­width apart with your arms bent by your sides.

2/ Bend at the hips and knees into a semi-squat po­si­tion, lean­ing your torso slightly for­ward.

3/ Then sim­ply push off your feet jump straight up in the air and land in a semi-squat po­si­tion.
