Tuck Jumps 

  1. Begin standing with your knees slightly bent.

  2. Quickly squat a short distance, flexing the hips and knees, and immediately extend to jump for maximum vertical height.

  3. As you go up, tuck your knees, attempting to touch the chest.

  4. Finish the motion by landing with the knees only partially bent, using your legs to absorb the impact.

  5. When you touch the floor again, immediately squat down and jump again.

  6. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.​


  • Do not perform this movement if you have any knee or back injuries due to the impact involved.

  • Make certain that your landings are controlled and that you land with your two feet straight (toes touching the floor first). The wrong landing can result in a sprained ligament.​
