How To Do Squat JumpsJun 25, 2021
Confession: As a Pilates enthusiast, I love getting my heart rate up with high-intensity movement.
*Were you expecting that?*
The best part is you don't need to spend hours at the gym to make this happen...It can be done in as little as 10-minutes!
One move that I love to incorporate is squat jumps because it gets the fast-twitch muscles working.
Let me guide you through how to do squat jumps correctly to avoid pain and injury!
Before you even get into jump squats, you need to make sure that you have proper squat form.
>>This includes feeling the right connections of glutes, hamstrings, and quads without tucking your booty.<<
You can't forget about your core connection, so zip up your belly to help you avoid rounding forward as you go down into a squat.
I also encourage you to try these at home without any shoes on for tactile feedback from your feet.
Spice your squats up by adding jumps.
As you go from squat to jump, activate your glutes and hamstrings to power yourself up.
The jump itself is a little *pop* straight up.
If the jump is too much for your body right now, you can lift your heels while keeping the strength and connection.
Want to learn more about this connection I keep talking about?
