jump squat ?

anyone recommend these? it seems like it would be dangerous to do, any tips on the form would be much appreciated.

I agree that they seem dangerous, assuming that you mean jumping with a bar across the shoulders. Unless you're a really advanced athelete I think the risks outweigh the benefits.

martinburke,

thanks for the input, do you know of any links where i might be able to see a video or a detailed description of how to do these right? are they just like back squats with jumping added?

Chad Waterbury did an article on jump squats and I believe there is either another article on explosive push ups or it's in one of his training routines on the site.

great article, just what i was looking for. thanks mule

No problem.

Waterbury has got some kick ass training routines.
