#30DaysToStrongerKnees Day 21: Jump Squat

I’m positive by now you have mastered the squat- so let’s take it to the next level and add a jump!

Start standing with your feet about hip distance about. Without shifting your weight forward, slowly sit down and back. Once you feel a good stretch in your glutes and hamstrings, squeeze your glutes and jump straight up and off the ground. When you come back down, land softly going right back into a squat.

Your goal is to squeeze, jump, and repeat. Starting out, I would do 3-5 sets of 10 reps. This movement includes a cardio aspect as well, conditioning your body along with your knees.

Make sure you post your video daily to the Balance In Motion Facebook Page or tag me in your Instagram or Twitter post using my handle and the hashtag #30DaysToStrongerKnees

If you’re uncomfortable posting a video, you can always post a motivational quote, picture, or something health and fitness related.Make sure to encourage others, and never, never judge! Again, this is a judgement free zone!
