Box Jumps are great for explosive power and strength. Doing them correct will help save your joints in the process.
Key points on a box jump.
- The more quite the landing the more is absorb by the muscles and not the joints.
- Control the landing.
- Get both heels fully on the box when you land.
- Step down instead of jumping down. Jumping down creates unnecessary impact.
Picture yourself landing like a butterfly with sore feet. Jumping hurdles is far down the road when you begin plyometric training.
