Exercise: Box Jumps (Standard, Squat Box Jump, and Seated Box Jump)
Do: Land with feet completely on the box, and come to a full standing position, before stepping down. Explode up with the highest jump possible.
Don’t: hit your knuckles on the box!
Easier: use a 20″ or shorter box / step
Harder: use a 24″ or higher box; jump higher.
- Squat box jump – hold the squat position for a full second at the bottom.
- Seated box jump – Sit with no weight on the feet, then explode upward.
