Instructions for Dumbbell Jump Squat
To perform a set of dumbbell jump squat:
Stand with 2 dumbbells at your sides in a neutral grip. Your trunk
should be in a neutral position.
Eccentric (Lowering) Motion
Maintain the alignment of your trunk as you push your
hips back and down as though sitting on a stool beneath you. Stop when you can no longer maintain the
position of your trunk.
Pause as little as possible at the bottom position before transitioning
to the concentric motion.
Concentric (Upward) Motion
Drive into the ground with your feet to extend your legs
and jump explosively in the air. Absorb the momentum of the movement when landing by immediately
dropping into the next repetition. Remember to breathe normally throughout the entire
Repeat steps 1 through 4 until you have completed the desired number
of dumbbell jump squat repetitions before resting.
This completes one set of dumbbell jump squat.
