Squat Jump

Start standing with feet shoulder-width apart. Squat down low and explode up as high as possible. Land softly back into a squat to start the next rep.

Tip: The base of many plyometric exercises is a squat to load the muscles. Proper form is key. Don’t lean too far forward—sit back like you would in a chair.
