The term "Cluster exercise" or "Cluster set" typically refers to a training method used in strength and conditioning workouts rather than a specific exercise. Cluster sets involve breaking down a traditional set of repetitions into smaller, more manageable "clusters" with short rest periods in between. This approach allows the athlete to perform more repetitions at a higher intensity, while reducing fatigue and maintaining proper form.

- Bend your knees slightly and jump up, spreading your legs apart and raising your arms above your head.
- As you land, bring your legs back together and lower your arms to your sides.
- Repeat the jump and land motion for the desired number of repetitions.
