Box jump

The box jump is an explosive exercise that strengthens the muscles of the lower body, including the quads, glutes, calves, and hamstrings. They also develop power in the lower body while revving the heart rate. Box jumps can be performed for low reps to focus on strength and power, or for higher reps for metabolic conditioning. Most coaches recommend stepping down rather than jumping down between reps.


  1. Improves leg power and explosiveness
  2. Burns a ton of calories
  3. Excellent contrast movement with heavy squats or deadlifts
  4. Box height can be customized to ability level
