Challenge - How Many Box Jumps Can You Do?

Categories: Exercise

This is a great challenge to take you into the new year and a good exercise to look at the explosive power in your legs. 

Over the last few years lots of gyms and got more plyobox's available for you to use.

Depending on how kind they are will mean they either have the softer foam boxes or the hard wooden box more metal step, which are likely to leave you with some nice cuts or bruises is you misjudge the height you're jumping.

The challenge for you this month is to see how many box jumps you can do in 1 minute.

This will vary depending on the height of the box you're using, so make sure you use the same height at the beginning and end of the month so you can see your progressions. 


  • Start with you feet shoulder width apart at the edge of the box
  • Bend your knees
  • Swing your arms 
  • Jump up and onto the box
  • Land with bent knees
  • Either step of jump back down

To start with you might find this as mentally tough as it is physically as you get used to knowing you will make it to the top of the box or step. 

These videos show you the technique and a couple of differnet heights to work at when doing your box jumps.

Keep me posted on how you get on.
