Plyometric Box Jumps

Plyometric Lunge Box Jump Online Personal Training



written by runnergirl training


Plyometric box jumps can be used with fitness steps or steps outside. As always, consult a physician before beginning a fitness program. When starting a plyometric program the box height should be no higher than 24 inches for men and 18 inches for women. If those are too high then focus the training on the ground to build strength and neuromuscular coordination. Later, attempt the box height again after sufficient training has occurred. See below for the workout!
