We are stepping things up for Week 3 of the Squat for September challenge! If you have been following the challenge you should be noticing that bum getting firmer and rounder, if you have only just joined get squatting!

For this weeks squat challenge we are incorporating the SQUAT JUMP into our squatting routine. The squat jump is a fantastic move, it’s explosive, will get your heart rate going and will tone your legs and butt all in one go.

Here’s how to do it:

squat jump

Start with your feet hip width apart.

Squat down, making sure that your knees do not go over your toes and that you keep your core tight, back in neutral and you chest up.

From your squat position you will jump up into the air, you can use your arms to propel you higher. As you land make sure your knees are soft (slightly bent) to avoid any excess impact on the knee joint.

From this position you will jump up and land back in squat.
