Tutorial: Box Jump


The Box Jump is an explosive squat pattern that builds strength, power, balance and coordination.


  • Stand in front of a plyo box or step.
  • Swing the arms back and rapidly drop into the squat.
  • As soon as you hit the bottom of the squat, quickly swing the arms arm and extend the hips as you jump onto the box.
  • Land into a squat with control.
  • Step down and repeat.


Jumping is a fundamental human movement that can be progressed once a standing jump has been mastered. Use of a box challenges the movement by adding a horizontal and vertical component. To land safely while performing the box jump exercise, a good level of ankle mobility and hamstring flexibility is required.
