Strength Coach & Personal Trainer Rich Thurman from San Francisco’s Xodus Fitness demonstrates the Bodyweight Squat Jump exercise.
Instructions: Start with the feet just about shoulder width apart.
Begin to sit straight down into a squat. You may extend one of your arms for balance and stability.
Once you reach the bottom of your squat, begin to accelerate upwards and jump at the end of the movement
At the top of your jump, squeeze the Glutes and contract the upper back muscles.
Upon landing, descend back to the bottom of the squat.
*Important: Some athletes will need to learn to squat effectively first before trying this. It is important that the athlete learns to decelerate the body in a controlled manner.
Landing is the most important part of this movement and this ability to decelerate the body translates across most sports activities.
Benefits: The Bodyweight Squat Jump is a great exercise for leg strength, power and endurance.
Strengthens the Legs, Core, Glutes and Spinal muscles and Shoulders.
