Kettlebell Exercise: Jump Squat

Jump Squats performed with a kettlebell are a powerful leg strengthener, but should only be down with healthy knees. Perfect the bodyweight version before attempting to weigh yourself down. Explosive power is just one side effect of jump squats. Strong glutes and a solid core are coming your way when performed over time. Start slow and work your way up.

Exercise Steps

Step 1: Pick up a kettlebell and hold it by the horns.

Step 2: Lower yourself into a squat and jump up off your toes.

Step 3: Land right back into a squat without putting too much force on your knees.

Tips & Safety: Land as softly as possible. Maintain a tight core throughout the duration of the exercise.
