Spice up yo’ life. Ready to break out of the regular ‘ole squat routine? Here are two jump squat variations for enhanced booty & leg development, plus cardio endurance…
If you’re into the Challenges I’ve been throwing at ya, pay close attention to this video demo. These squat variations will be included in future Challenge workouts!
180 JUMP SQUAT
Power through your legs and core to jump while turning completely around 180 degrees as you land, squat and reach with your left arm simultaneously. Repeat the same as you power back around again 180 degrees while reaching with the opposite arm. Land light on your feet and keep the squat phase in good form — booty back and knees do not go over toes. Although you will lean forward slightly on the squat, keep your back straight. No hunching over.
Squat low and wide, then jump up with feet together and back down again into squat position. Touchdown into each squat with alternating arms. The entire sequence should flow with no stops in-between. Keep your core engaged for the jump up onto the balls of your feet. Land light into the squat with feet slightly angled outward. Same as with the 180 degree jump squat, no hunching or rounding your back.
Push through any rough spots this week. Keep the commitments you make to yourself and witness the awesomeness that follows. XO!
