Here’s Jaie Bhadane with yet another foot thumping exercise. Jump squats are great to start any workout with. They help exercise the quads and calves, at the same time helping you tone your body as well. They are rather simple to perform and require no equipment. Begin by lowering your body as much as you can by squatting down. Bend your knees and assume the position of sitting down. Your thighs should be parallel to the ground. Pause and hold position. Now launch your body upwards and lift your hands above your head as you jump in the air. Land at your previous position and bring your arms back to the starting position. Do 3-sets of 15 repetitions.
