Pre-Season Workout with Jen Hudak: Weighted Dumbell Jumps

This exercise develops explosive power in the hips, glutes, and legs. A quick, explosive jump is the ultimate expression of lower-body power. These weighted jumps demand a forceful triple extension of the hips, knees, and ankles, and are a great teaching progression for anyone interested in Olympic lifting (clean, jerk, snatch) or anyone wishing to train a traditional Clean or explosive exercise with minimal equipment.
