Weekly Wednesday Workout: Jump Squats

 

We are doing a classic full body workout in one move today!

httpv://youtu.be/U4s4mEQ5VqU

We have done all kind of squats for the Weekly Wednesday Workout: Split Squats, Single Leg Squats, Plie Squats–you name it! Today we do my least favorite of all–Squat Jumps! I do these in between my machine intervals at the gym. What I like about them apart from the fact that you can do them anywhere, is that the heart rate pretty much sky rockets immediately! Squats generally get your heart going but add a jump in there and the calories will start burning. Not easy, but super effective. My goal is to do more than 15 in a row!

Have you ever tried Jump Squats?

Jump squats are hard for sure! Great featured move today! I have to stick with regular squats until I loose a little more weight. My knees have given me issues in the past with carrying too much weight.

Thanks Kristina! My knees aren’t all that great either but I try to do them at least once a week.

Never tried these and with my lower back, so not thinking these would work for me. I will totally stick with regular squats though, but thank you for sharing as always Nellie!! 🙂

I haven’t been able to do these in a long time, because of my back. But my husband loves them and does them quite often! I wish I could do them.

I love jump squats! They are hard but I like that they get my heart rate up so quickly!

Squat jumps are like burpees to me. So good but so bad at the same time!

Reply
Nellie March 9, 2014 - 9:11 pm

Exactly but I will take a squat jump over a burpee anyday!

So bad, and so good! My husband struggles with these because of his lower back but for all of my issues (anxiety, sensitive gums), I’ve never had back pain before. Whew!

Back pain is no bueno!

Those look both amazing and terrible at the same time. When I first saw the title, I thought it was going to be about jumping lunges…which I hate. Somehow, though, these look like they could be a bit better. Either that or I’m just kidding myself. Hope you had a great Wednesday!

I HATE JUMPING LUNGES TOO! lol I totally do single leg lunges. I am incredibly awkward with my jump lunges…

My trainer has me doing these as well as jump lunges. I’m horrible at both so any tutorials I can watch, I’m all for. I like this video a lot because she also gives different examples (not that I’m able to do those advanced ones).

Jump lunges hurt so bad for me! I am extremely awkward with that move. I keep my lunges isolated to one leg only lol
