Split Squat, Jump

Type: Legs
The jumping split squat is an effective exercise for developing the quads and glutes, and is performed by performing a squat with the feet staggered, jumping between reps. Incorporating a jump whilst alternating the legs increases the demand on the heart and lungs making this version of the exercise much more challenging. Below you'll find a video guide and step by step instructions that describes the correct technique for the split squat jump exercise.
Level :  Equipment : No

Split Squat, Jump Steps:

Step 1:
Stand upright, clasp the hands together and place behind the head

Step 2:
Take a step forward in to the split stance position

Jump up as high as you can and switch legs in mid air
