Exercise #2: Bodyweight Jump Squats

Place your fingers on the back of your head and pull your elbows back so that they’re in line with your body. Perform a bodyweight squat until your thighs are parallel to the floor, then explosively jump as high as you can (imagine you’re pushing the floor away from you as you leap). When you land, immediately squat and jump again. Hold dumbbells at your side to make it more challenging.
