Squat jumps and plyometric jumps are basic drills that improve agility and power and help increase an athlete's vertical jump. Some of the most effective exercises can be done without equipment and simply use your own body weight. While regular squats are great, squat jumps offer a new take on the traditional, one that you're definitely going to feel in your quads.
Do not perform this movement if you have any knee or back injuries due to the impact involved. Also, make certain that your landings are controlled and that you land with your two feet straight. The wrong landing can result in a sprained ligament.
You can also perform this movement with a barbell resting on your shoulders or while holding dumbbells by your sides.
