How to Do Split Squat Jumps

The split 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 split squat jumps.

Beginning

Beginning Split Squat Jumps

1. Step one foot back and take a deep lunge, bending both knees as if you were about to half-kneel on the ground.

2. As you lunge back, make sure your front heel is down. Then rocket up and jump out of the lunge to switch to the other side and land in a lunge.

Movement

2. As you descend down to the starting position, maintain your head up and pointing ahead, and engage your core to keep it tight.

3. Push off the ground with both feet and drive upwards.

Benefits

Muscle coordination, power, strength, vertical jump, and stability are all aided by the split squat jump. Because of the muscular coordination involved, they also enhance mobility. This is particularly useful in sports in which the body is not in a steady position.
