Jump Lunges Killer Plyometric Leg Exercise
gt;gt;MARK: Hi this is Mark Perry from BuiltLean which is of course your source of efficient fitness tips and programs, so todayI'm gonna show you one of my favorite exercises for really gettingyour heart rate up, and getting that late lightburn going and it's the jump lunges, it's also referredto as the jump split. And yo, I'm gonna be showing you three differentvariations of the jump lunge, so you can figure out what's right for yourfitness level.
And so let me go into it. What is a jump lineé I'm gonna be showing you the easy version,which is the assistant jump line, and so you are gonna try to find a bar,or something you can hold onto, as you're doing this exercises. So how a jump lunge works is, you'regonna start out with your legs split apart, you're gonna go down towards the floor,and you're gonna forcefully jump off the ground. onto the other leg, and so you're essentiallysplitting your legs apart.
And alternating them. Let me just show youreal time. Because I had this assistance here, it's reallyhelping support my weight so it's much easier than doing a normal jump lunge, the body weight jumplunge. And that's what I'm gonna show you right now,that's a second variation of the jump lunge,it's justwith your body weight. And so, let me show you what it looks like.There're a few different ways you can hold your hands
you can either hold your hands right by yourside, as you do the jump lunge. You can also do the jump lines with yourhands on you hips, or even behind your head. And so if you notice, it requires a decent amount of balance andthat's kind of an element as you're doing this exercise, and so, if you're watching this tutorial and you'rethinking quot;you know what, I can do this no
problem well, I have a surprise for you, and is thatif you use weight, it's much harder. And I'd love to hear your opinion if you doit, so I got 25 pound dumbbells here, I'm gonna show you what it looks like. So we are just gonna hold these by your sides, again we're just forcefully jumpingup and down
And so, I like doing these, I might soundcrazy but I love doing these in between a squatworkout. So I do squat, then I do jump lunges,a squat, then I do jump lunges in a circuit. So, I actually put up a tutorialwhere there's a metabolic conditioning circuit that I use the jump lunge as one ofthe four exercises. And I actually do the metabolic conditioningcircuit at the end of a work out so hope this is helpful, if you're watchingon YouTube I'd like if you clicked the Like button.
