The squat jump, like any squatting movement, is a great exercise for your legs. It’s also very intense, so it works your heart and lungs, and practically your entire body!

Here is how to do a squat jump.

Step 1: Stand like you’re going to do a squat. Feet should be shoulder width apart, hands in front of your chest.

Step 2: Squat down by pushing your butt back and swing your arms downward in the same movement. (The arm swing is important, don’t neglect it like most people do!)

Step 3: Immediately explode upward from the squat position, with the goal being to jump as high as possible. Reach up with your arms to get more height.

Step 4: Hit the ground, reposition if necessary, and repeat.
