Box Jumps: Greatmats Fitness Training Series, Part 4

Box Jump Training at CrossFit Duluth

Let's talk about the box jump. This can be intimidating at first so you may want to start at a low height and work your way up.
Sterling Sound tiles are great for this type of exercise as they absorb some of the impact from doing box jumps.
When you're ready to do the box jump make sure you are close enough to jump on the box instead of to the box.
Jump or step up on to the box and then stand up straight.
When going back down, stepping down will be easier on your achilles.
