The One-Leg Burpee/Jumping Squat is one of my favorite body weight exercises for wrestlers!  It is a full-body (almost full body… it doesn’t give a complete back workout) exercise that will:

  • Increase your Strength
  • Increase your Power (Speed)
  • Increase your Conditioning
  • Increase your Core involvement

Check out this 18 second video…  I did a few reps for you to give the an idea of how it’s done.

(Ok, I admit it… I was tired and ‘dogging it’ while I did these.  It was at the end of a tough leg workout, and I get a little slack for being 43… right??:))  Just be sure you generate as much speed and explosion as you can with each repetition!

    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,

    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, very good blog!
