General and Specifics

  • this exercise is perfect for runners and basketball players
  • it strengthens your circulatory system and requires core and legs
  • it also improves your flexibility and stability
  • warm-up well before you start with this plyometric exercise, otherwise you provoke injuries
  • you can choose the height of your tool, the higher, the more difficult the exercise

Starting Position

  • stand shoulder width apart from your stable tool or a heightening (park bench, high resting place)
  • the feet are shoulder width apart
  • you are in a dynamic posture and ready to jump
  • the arms and legs are slightly bent, the upper body is tilted forward a bit

Correct Execution

  • brace the core and jump onto the box
  • your arms move upwards, you can gain some momentum
  • try to land with bent knees and with the balls first
  • the upper body is tilted forward again
  • stretch the legs after you landed on the box
  • do not rest to long on it, get off the box quickly
  • do not jump off the box, this can cause injuries
