Squat Jump

Reps: 40 Total, Rest: 60–90 Seconds

Immediately jump as high as you can, reaching for a mark that’s 12 to 24 inches above your reach when standing (B). That’s one rep. Perform as many reps as you can until you begin to slow down or can no longer touch your mark. When you can do two sets of 20 or more jumps, use the Power Jumper apparatus, available at
