Side-to-side box skip

The side-to-side box skip is an explosive lower-body exercise that involves jumping laterally over a bench or box, landing with one foot on top of the surface, and then switching positions. It primarily targets the muscles of the lower body, but is also a serious cardiovascular challenge. It is often performed for high reps or for time as part of a fat-loss or athleticism-focused workout or circuit.
