How to Do Jump Squats

Catch Some Air: Jump Squats Will Lift Your Butt

Some of the most effective exercises can be done without equipment and simply use your own body weight. While regular squats are great, squat jumps offer a new take on the traditional — one that you're definitely going to feel in your quads. Learn how to do them below!

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Start by doing a regular squat, then engage your core and jump up explosively.
  • When you land, lower your body back into the squat position to complete one rep. Land as quietly as possible, which requires control.
  • Do two to three sets of 10 reps.

Make sure to use your whole foot to jump, not just your toes, and try not to let your shoulders lean out beyond your knees, as this can strain and injure your back.
