Split-Squat Jumps With Resistance Bands

1 of 2
Previous Next

• Assume split-squat position with resistance bands around ankles
• Lower slightly, then jump straight up for maximum height
• Switch position of legs in air, landing in split-squat position with opposite foot forward
• Continue for specified reps

Coaching Points: Feet should be walking-step-distance apart in split-squat position. Keep your knee behind your toes, chest up and shoulders back.
Gaines: Again, this works explosiveness, but from a different position. Sometimes we like to do this after a slow squat movement since it's much quicker.
Sets/Distance: 3x10 yards
