In this episode of Level Up with Coach Ron we take a look at the barbell jump squat and show you why you should ditch it, today! The barbell back squat jump squat is one of the most overused and overrated exercises we see in the gym today. It is commonly used by individuals looking to improve their athleticism and explosiveness, but more often than not it ends up leading to injury and, ultimately, killing your client’s gains!
Coach Ron shares a simple three exercise set up, using only 1 pair of dumbbells and a little space that can help take your vertical jump and athletic training to the next level. Understanding the mechanics and modifications to best meet the demands of your client’s desired outcomes is what helps you level up your exercise instruction.
