The box jump workout has a lot of benefits without a lot of equipment. All you need is a stable box, your own body weight, and a few tips on how to do it.

Box jumps are one of the main exercises in plyometric training or jump training. Not only do you burn a lot of calories through the explosive movements, you also work on endurance, strength, and coordination. At the same time, you train your body’s stability and mobility. By improving these two things, you will be more flexible, faster, and more agile. This will also boost your footspeed and help your balance.

You can choose the size of the box. Generally it should come to your knees and can vary depending on your fitness level. To find out how high you can jump, start on low platforms and work your way up. This way you will build strength and confidence this way.

In box jump training you work all of your leg muscles and strengthen your core using your own body weight. Box jumps also boost endurance and improve your cardiovascular health.

Start in a low squat and stretch your arms out behind you like a ski jumper before takeoff. Now push yourself off the floor with all the strength in your legs and use your arms for momentum. Make sure to land softly with both feet fully on the box and absorb the jump with your knees. Jump or step down from the box and start again. Make sure your starting position is stable and the jumps are controlled. Be solid and confident, messy, chaotic movements increase the risk of injury.
