- Jump up to the starting position.
- Land with your knees bent to absorb the impact.
- Pause, reset your body and repeat.
The first image below is a jump squat using just your body weight, the second using dumbbells.
*Note: You could also hold a dumbbell, 5 or 10 pounds, if you're new to this exercise. If totally new, try this without any weight at first, until you're comfortable with the movements and feel ready to add some weights.
