Box Jumps are fantastic core exercises that very quickly become aerobic. Combine them with doing push ups, pull ups, and/or squats and you’ve created a very quick yet demanding workout.
You can use a box like in the video below, or you can jump onto a ledge, stone wall, etc.
- Start with both feet on the ground in front of the box.
- Jump on top of the box attaining full extension at the top (lock out your knees).
- Step down and repeat (alternate right and left with which leg you step down with – this video doesn’t demonstrate that). For greater intensity, you can also jump up and down.
