How to Tempo Jump Squat
Exercise Families: Cardio
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand in good posture with your hands together, feet shoulder-width apart, chin level, chest held high, and your back naturally arched.
Push your hips back and down while allowing your trunk to angle forward approximately 20 degrees. Jump in the air by driving your feet through the ground, simultaneously using your arms to help your body explode upwards toward the sky.
Land softly, allow your body to descend back to the floor, returning to a squat position. Rapidly recoil, exploding into your next jump. Continue repeating the quick jumping movement for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
Tempo squat jumps are a great exercise for developing power, explosiveness, boosting your metabolism, and burning calories. If tempo squat jumps are too challenging or cause joint-discomfort you can elevate your heart rate performing lower impact movements for the same specified time as this exercise.
