Prison Workout: Squats and Jumps

I lump together SQUATS ang JUMPS because their forms are somewhat similar. Squats have already been profiled in a previous video, and are critical building blocks to the plyometric jumps.  Here are the two jumps we'll be doing during the PWO:

Above is a KNEE TUCK JUMP (or shortened to TUCK JUMP).

Above is a SQUAT JUMP.  Notice the hands above the head. Another option is interlacing your fingers, and putting your hands behind your head.  Both options are completely acceptable.  Notice how deep this man gets on the bottom of the movement. Practicing AIR SQUATS will help with balance and flexibility to make the proper "depth."
