Strength and Conditioning Coordinator for the University of Florida, Preston Greene, shows you the proper technique for the Back Squat. It uses all the fibers of the lower extremities and posterior chain, the parts of the body that are used when jumping.  

Back Squat

Athlete Movements: Going all the way down on the squat is very important in increasing vertical jump because it makes sure that all the necessary muscles are being used.

Teaching Points: This exercise works best with a higher number of sets and lower number of repetitions.
