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.
