Plyometrics: Box Jumps

Plyometrics: Also referred to as 'Jump Training'

A very good plyometric move to focus on speed and explosive power is the Box Jump. These exercises are great for using bodyweight and gravity when training. Typical box jump training is done with boxes at different heights. The typical measurements are 12" (typically used for Step-Ups), 18" and 24". The advanced athletes (professional football and basketball players) typically used the 30", 36" or 42" box.
