The Plyometric Jump Squat Challenge

The Plyometric Jump Squat Challenge

Complete as many jump squats as you can in 2 minutes. To make the grade, the squat has to be what is known as ‘A2G’ (arse to ground) and the jump has to clear 12 inches off the floor. The jump squat is one of the most basic plyometric exercises of all, yet in its simplicity lies its beauty – anyone can do it, anywhere they have a bit of space and head clearance! Here is a video demo of the exercise… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjY25jL_avs   more about this challenge...
