How to do a Proper Squat Jump
When it comes to exercise, it’s all about the form. If you aren’t in proper form, the exercise isn’t going to give you the results that you are looking for. Not to mention, it can cause you to pull a muscle or hurt yourself. So please, take time to go slow until you have perfected the perfect form of all exercises, including these squat jumps.
Step 1: To perform this plyometric exercise, first stand with the feet slightly outside the shoulders (wherever your squat stance is) and drop the hips backward and down. Send the arms straight out in front of you to help the chest stay lifted. Double check your knee position – make sure they’re staying behind your toes.
Step 2: Push through your heels to drive out of the squat. Roll through the foot to lift into your jump, bringing the arms overhead to help propel you upward. Land softly and quietly with bent knees. If you can go right back into your squat, do it! Otherwise, take the soft-knee landing and reset for the next squat.
