The box jump is an exercise that seems pretty self-explanatory. As in, jump up? Onto the box? But it’s a more advanced movement than you may think, explains Julia Avery, an instructor at New York City interval training workout studio The Fhitting Room. #boxjump #crossfit #workout
Plyometrics exercises like box jumps can help make you faster, more agile and stronger. Start with one foot on a box or an aerobics step. Jump sideways to switch feet on top of the box. Keep the core engaged and an athletic stance and be sure to bend the knees as you land. Start with 30 seconds at a time -- or incorporate it into a Tabata routine.
