Wow, yesterdays traffic was huge. 14,000 views here and over 60,000 reached on Facebook. Guess Box Jumps are popular.

I got an interesting response yesterday that made me realize that I should take this post a step further. The video below shows a good box jump. Interestingly, the athletes vertical jump approximately corresponds to the box height ( 24″ box, 25″ vertical). Sorry for the injection of logic.

The next video shows what a “too high” box jump looks like:

As I said yesterday, it’s not how high the box is, it’s the movement of the center of mass. High boxes can be dangerous.
