Squat Jumps

Squat Jumps

Objective: Develop explosive jumping ability.  Improve flexibility in hips and knees.

Beginning in a squat position, and using arms and legs, jump vertically and horizontally forward, maximizing both height and distance.  Land with knees slightly bent, return to squat position, and repeat movement.

Note: The key is to maximize both height and distance, focusing more on height.  Be especially careful to land with knees bent.  Movement can be performed with hands behind head or at sides, used in a swinging upward motion for momentum and added power.
