Coach's Tips

Jump on both feet to the height of the box. It's harder than you think to use your whole body!

How to Box Jump

Starting Position

1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.

2. Place your hands on your hips or outstretched in front of you for balance.

3. Look forward, and keep your head and chest up.

4. Bend your knees slightly.

Proper Form

1. Explosively jump up onto the box, driving through your heels.

2. Land softly on the box with both feet at the same time.

3. Step off the box or jump down (depending on the box height).

4. Repeat.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you jump onto the box.

2. Inhale as you step or jump off the box.


1. Make sure the box is sturdy and stable.

2. Start with a lower box and increase the height as you become more comfortable with the movement.

3. Do not jump too high if you are a beginner.

4. Do not land with your feet too close to the edges of the box.

5. Do not lock your knees when you land.

6. Do not land on your toes. Land with your whole foot.
