Jump squats help tone the calves, glutes, hamstrings, core and quadriceps.
How to do it:
- Stand with your feet at shoulder-width apart.
- Begin by doing a regular squat, then involve your core and jump up with full force.
- When you land on the ground, get back into the squat position.
- This finishes one rep.
You need to master this so that you land as quietly as possible.
Do two sets of 10 reps each.
Benefits: A squat or jumping exercise works numerous muscles in the lower body, core and even the upper body. The major muscles used are the quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteals, lower back and the abdominals.
