Training day for Club 100 Member, Stephanie Gutierrez with the Weighted Jump Squat

Training day for Club 100 Member, Stephanie Gutierrez

 

1. Position a lightly loaded barbell across the back of your shoulders. You could also use a weighted vest, sandbag, or other types of resistance for this exercise.

2. The weight should be light enough that it doesn’t slow you down. Your feet should be just outside of shoulder width with your head and chest up. This is your starting position.

3. Using a counter movement, squat partially down and immediately reverse your direction to explode off of the ground, extending through your hips, knees, and ankles. Maintain good posture throughout the jump.

4. As you return to the ground, absorb the impact through your legs.

Pro tips: Watch your form, start with super light weights at first to get used to the movement. Listen to your body and always practice and train safely.

Happy Training!
