Add Weights To Your Jump Squat For Extra Resistance

This is a plyometric move than anyone can do, whether you're an athlete or not.

Athletes love plyometric moves because they’re so effective—but even if you’re not an athlete, you can give your body this awesome conditioning workout.

Next time you do a jump squat, add a bit of resistance to it (dumbbells, backpack, water jug, etc.) and your body will thank you. Try doing 4 sets of 10-15 reps.
