Box Jumps Overview

This move is best for those who are open to challenging workouts. The box jump is a plyometric move in which you must jump on a box from the floor. It targets your quads, glutes, hamstrings, and calves. These moves are for increasing the strength in your body.

They help to increase your power and explosiveness. By doing box jumps, you'll gain more hops. In addition, this workout will help you burn more calories as well.

How to Do It?

  • Keep a box of short steps in front of you and stand with your shoulders and feet width apart.
  • Slightly bend your knees, drop down and move your arms behind you.
  • Now jump on the box with bent knees, allowing the arms to come before you.
  • Jump back slightly onto the floor with knees bent.
  • Repeat the procedure.

Box Jump Tips

  • Make sure the box you place in front of you is not too high in length.
  • Bend your knees properly with arms out behind you.
  • Jump carefully from floor to box and land your feet slightly on it.
  • Avoid poor feet or knee alignment on landing.
