Squat Jumps on Step

Burn More Calories with Heart Smart Cardio

Burn more calories throughout your strength training workouts by incorporating this “Heart Smart Cardio Move” in between each exercise. This is a challenging exercise, so if you’re a beginner start without a step. As you progress up the intensity and do the squat jumps on a step then a higher step or even on a Bosu. Remember when performing any kind jumps always absorb the shock of the jump with your glutes and your toes.

Do it Right:

  • Begin standing in a neutral position lengthwise on a step – feet hips distance apart, knees soft, abdominals tight & chest lifted
  • Jump up & off the step – land in a squat position w/ feet on either side of the step & hands touching the step, absorb the shock with your glutes and the balls of your feet
  • Immediately spring back up to land w/ both feet back on the middle of the step to complete 1 rep
