Dumbbell lateral hop

The dumbbell lateral hop is an explosive exercise that targets the muscles of the hips and legs. Adding dumbbells adds a challenge to the core, as well. Because balance can be a challenge, it is usually performed with relatively light weights, often as a component of fat-loss or athletic training.


  1. Strengthens the legs, hips, and core in the lateral plane
  2. Serious cardiovascular challenge and calorie burn
  3. Helps improve vertical jump
