How to do Power Jump

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Hard

Impact Level: High

Target Body Parts: calves, glutes, quadriceps


Start off in a standing position with your feet at shoulder width. Then squat down into a half squat position by bending your hips back and down and flexing your knees.

Pull your arms back behind you and lean forwards. From this bottom position, explosively jump up as high as you can whilst swinging your arms forwards. Then whilst in mid-air, pull your hands, which are held out at the same, hip height. This should be at the highest point of your jump.

As you start to return back to the ground, straighten your legs to land on your feet, with slightly bent knees to absorb the impact of your landing.

The crouch down into a half squat again and pull your arms back behind you ready for the next power jump.
