Movement of the Week /// The Air Squat and Jumping Air Squat

Share This Post

This week on the <<>> BLOG <<>> I am sharing a few coaching and training tips on the air squat and jumping air squat! These two movements are the foundation of all squatting, weightlifting, and beyond. Refining and improving your squat with consistent, daily practice is one way to start and/or continue working toward and living your highest quality, strongest, healthiest, happiest, and longest life possible. 🙂

Coaching tips on the air squat:

  • Focus your eyes straight ahead
  • Keep your torso as upright as possible
  • Knees track with your toes
  • Keep body weight evenly distributed across your whole foot all the way through
  • Drive upward through your midfoot
  • Lead with your shoulders and chest
  • Bring your hips back into vertical alignment with your shoulders, knees, and ankles
  • Squeeze your glutes

Coaching tips on the jumping air squats:

  • Set your feet to shoulder width apart
  • Focus your eyes on the horizon
  • Pull your shoulders down and back
  • Keep your torso as upright as possible
  • Your knees should track with your toes
  • Distribute your body weight evenly across both feet
  • Think about driving upward through the middle of your foot
  • Lead upward with your chest
  • Bring your hips through at the top
  • Squeeze your glutes
  • Your feet should float off the floor just an inch or two before landing back on the floor gently
  • Make sure your weight is evenly distributed across both of your feet before descending into your next squat jump
