How to perform jump squat properly:

  • Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, turning out your toes and knees slightly.
  • Bend your knees to lower your body like you’re sitting in a chair, keeping your chest up.
  • When your thighs are parallel to the ground, use your arms and push through your heels to jump straight up as high as possible.
  • Squeeze your quads and glutes as you jump, and land softly back in the squat position.
