The box jump is a plyometric exercise which involves jumping movement from the floor and then landing on top of an elevated jump box. It is one of the most effective jump variations that can be included in your workout routine because it decreases joint stress while providing the perfect environment for expressing power and practicing proper landing mechanics to ensure low impact.
Box Jumps Benefits
Box jumps, because of their impact on joints, help in improving collagen and mineral content of bones.
These serve as excellent warm-up exercises when performed before weight training since they aid in building strength and improving the functions of your nervous system.
Box jumps require a fast extension and flexion of your hips at the top of the movement and thus complement lifts including the thruster and snatch.
It assists in cardiovascular conditioning by boosting your oxygen intake and allowing your heart to pump blood to all the muscles efficiently.
