Arms-crossed jump squat

The arms-crossed jump squat is an explosive version of the jump squat. Crossing your arms eliminates any extra power that could come from swinging your arms, making the movement extra strict and challenging for the lower body. It can be performed for time or reps and is especially effective in a fat-loss or athleticism-focused circuit or workout.


  1. Cardiovascular challenge that also builds endurance, balance, and coordination
