From a sports performance perspective this movement works on explosive power, acceleration, deceleration & force absorption and stability throughout the lower body.
This exercise can benefit athletes even from any sport.
The key in this movement is not to jump as high as possible but to land properly with good mechanics and then take off again immediately. You want to be balanced and stable when you land and then take off.
This is a plyometric movement that teaches your muscles to absorb force when landing and immediately contract explosively into another jump—the key 🔑 to developing explosive power.
