How to Do a 180 Squat Jump

Squats and Cardio Combine in This Fat-Burning, Tush-Toning Workout Move

We love us some squats. And what's not to love? It's an effective and simple way to work that booty and tone your tush! And we're really loving this variation. Cardio and strength training together? Yes, please! Here's a little how-to for a 180 squat jump . . . and don't blame us if you end up singing the song "Jump Around" to yourself while you do it.

Adding a half turn to the jump squat is not only fun, but it also requires extra coordination and provides more core work.

  • Start in a deep squat with your legs a bit wider than your hips and your toes pointed outward. Twist your torso to the right, reaching your right hand to the ceiling and your left hand toward the floor.
  • Jump up, spinning to the left 180 degrees (halfway around), bringing both hands overhead. Land softly in a deep squat, twisting your torso to the left, with the left hand reaching toward the ceiling and the right hand toward the floor.
  • Repeat, but reverse directions so you jump spinning to the right and go back the way you came. This completes one rep.
  • Do 10 reps.
