Jump. Squat. Repeat.
Jump squats require explosive movement, making your body work even harder than regular squats and elevating your heart rate. Even better, this is a body weight exercise that can be done anywhere – no need to wait until you’re in the gym. Slowly lower yourself into a safe squat position (don’t allow your knees to pass your toes) and then jump straight up, extending both your arms and legs. Land in the squat position once again and repeat for 30 to 60 seconds.
