To all you men out there that feel when it comes to getting bigger, stronger, and more agile, you believe that the only way to achieve these feats, is to lift heavy weights all day long, and then go do some hill sprints or something similar, to finish up your workouts. You think that the absolute last thing you should be doing are bodyweight exercises. The truth however, is that bodyweight exercises can build you a lean muscular, agile, flexible, and toned physique, just as well as any free weight exercise. One exercise in particular, which can benefit you greatly, is the jump squat.
Squat down as far as you can go and explode up with all you have in you and jump up from the ground. When you land, focus on keeping your chest up, and try to push your hips back behind you slightly. Make sure to absorb the impact with soft knees when you land. Once you’re confident with the exercise, you can then start to adapt it, so that you perhaps hold a dumbbell or kettle bell in each hand.
Add this into your daily routine before or during your weights session and see the benefits within a week! Set your timer and try 30 seconds on and 30 seconds rest and repeat for 5 rounds....go on give it a go and feel the burn...make sure you power up and jump as high as you can!
