Jumping knee up-down

The jumping knee up-down is an explosive bodyweight movement that consists of a knee up-down followed by a jump squat. It targets the muscles of the lower body, including the quads, glutes, and hamstrings, but is also a challenging power and conditioning exercise.


  1. Strengthens the quads, glutes, and hamstrings
  2. Cardiovascular challenge that also builds explosiveness, balance, and coordination
  3. Pairs well with other bodyweight movements in circuit training
  4. Requires no equipment
