Move of the Week – Squat Jump

The squat jump is a cardio based lower body exercise meant to strengthen your legs & glutes. To begin, stand with your feet shoulder width apart & arms at your side. Start by doing a regular squat, then jump up as explosively as you can reaching your arms towards the sky. When you land, drop back into the squat position completing one rep. Keep in mind as you squat you want your knees over your ankles, dropping your butt back into the sitting position. Try to keep your head & chest up while bringing your elbows back, then explode straight up into the air extending the arms. Land soft & repeat.The workout suggestion is to do 3 sets of 10 reps.
