How to Do Multiplanar Plyometric Squat Jumps

The multiplanar plyometric squat jumps should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the multiplanar plyometric squat jumps.
