Box Jumps done right

Box jumps are a triple extension power movement. They’re not a test of how high you can raise your knees. They’re great for training, using just your own bodyweight, the same movement pattern to use when doing Cleans and many other powerful movements.

Your box jump height is (truly) measured by how high you raise your hips, not how high you can get your feet off the ground.

However, instead of me rambling on, this discussion has already been done well by master trainer Dave Donatucci from the Florida Institute of Performance. Dave’s an awesome trainer, I’ve seen first hand the results he’s been able to achieve.

And here’s the link to the complete article Dave wrote.
