Jump squats must be part of every workout which targets legs.

How to do Jump Squats:

  • With proper posture, stand while the feet is shoulder-width apart.
  • Bend knees to about 90 degrees, squatting down.
  • Now with all your leg and glutes, jump as high as you can.
  • Land softly, absorbing the impact, with your knees bent back to squat position.
  • Do this for 3-4 sets of 6-8 reps.

  1. I read somewhere that squats are not good for thighs as instead of getting rid of fat to make them slim you may end up bigger thighs. Is it true? If yes then exercise number 4 “jump squat” should not be in the list. Right?

    • Squats are resistance exercise which is good to tone your thigh muscles. You do not burn much calories performing squats but still these are part of a good workout for toning your thighs. Just remember not to overdo it.

  2. The hip bridge is great to stretch out a tight back. I learned this exercise in an exercise class back in college in the seventies. It helps me throughout the years, pregnancy, driving too long, sitting in one position, stress, etc. I count to 100 then stop, repeat until the pain is gone. I put a basketball or soccer ball between my knees to do esisitance training too.
