Perk:
A full-body exercise that requires no equipment and can be performed anywhere. It is great to get the heart pumping and also strengthens the legs and glutes.

Work:
1. Stand with the feet shoulder-width apart.
2. Squat down as if you were performing a normal squat.
3. Engage your core and jump in the air explosively.
4. On landing, lower body back into the squat position – that is one rep
5. Be careful to land with control and if there is any pain in knees, stop immediately.
