How to Do Jump Squat With Rotation

The jump squat with rotation should begin with a 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 jump squat with rotation.

Beginning 

Beginning Jumping Air Squats

1. Use your hands to "load" your body so you can generate enough power to blast out of the squat.

2. Make careful to bend your knees on the landing after you've jumped. If you're doing numerous reps, this will help you land securely without hurting your joints while also preparing you for the next rep.

Movement

Jumping Air Squats Movement

1. Start by facing in any direction with knees slightly bent and arms bent at your side facing forward.

2. Perform a hop squat by bending with the knees and jumping at a 180 degree angle.

3. Land from the hop in the same position you started, and hop back in the opposite direction.

4. Repeat.
