6 Ways to Boost Your Box Jump Drop Jumps. It sounds counterintuitive, but to build up your box jump, you need to get better at landing. Just like Single-Leg Squats. Since box jumps are a combined reflection of lower body strength and speed, compound lower body Hip Thrusters. In.

Below are 3 simple practices that I implemented to improve my box jump, and how you can use them to do the same: 1. Practice without the box and improve mobility around joints. You want to be really mobile to be able to jump properly, both in order to avoid injury and to get height. Utilize stretches that are going to open up your hips and stretch your calves, quads, and ankles. The most important step, and by far the best way to improve box jumps, is the timing and rhythm of your reps. Most beginners start from the bottom of the box, jump onto it, and then step down.

Others simply jump up and back down to the ground and have a short break before going again. Best way to improve your box jumps: Unless you are a badass, and can rep them, STEP UPS/DOWNS. Nothing even touches box jumps in terms of injury.

They are dangerous. Period. Falls, Achilles injuries, ankle injuries, calf pulls.

I have seen broken/dislocated wrists and arms. 4. The athlete’s head and body must always be directional to the jump with feet landing firmly on the box to avoid injury. 5. Stand up straight on the box before jumping down again, then repeat. Watch Joe’s full jump in the video below. Let us know how you incorporate box jumps into your workout & get ready to #betheboss.

If your left leg is in the lead position, scissor your right leg forward and then back to the rear for landing.

It’s a quick scissor-like movement, not a kick. Do 8 to 12 repetitions with your left leg forward.

  • I know you are busy but I was wondering if you could give my channel a shout out…I’m serious about business and it would help my channel grow….please reply when you get this…..you help me out I’ll help you out

  • Great video gents. Would you be able to do a vid on the best cameras to use for like the first upgrade? I am currently using my phone but as I gain more experience and such I want to upgrade to a proper camera. Would love to hear your opinions on this.

    Also can you help me out with monetization. Like when is a good time to start monetizing and why?

    Love your South African brother:)

  • Great tips boys. I’ve got to add in some speed work To my routine! It’s cool how you went to the parkour gym too, was it just little kids there and you? Lol

  • 9k lads you’re getting so so close to the 10k mark!! what’s your plans when you hit 10k? perhaps 10 hour workout? 10k calories in 10 hours? how about a 10,000 reps workout? probably will take way way too long!!

  • Another good video this white boy can’t jump but there might be some hope for this Hobbit yet.!! When y’all going to put out a video on increase explosive speed and power off the line… you know like sled work and speed squats? Love the content and that y’all actually take the time to build videos based on your base interaction! Keep it coming, it is utilized!!!!!!

  • Is jumping as high as possible really that beneficial? Surely for speed all that matters is how high your hips travel and it doesn’t matter how high you tuck your legs up as long as your hips move

  • Point 5 is so damn true. So many people overlook the mental aspect. If you’re hesitant or think you can’t do it, more than likely you won’t, gotta commit and actually believe you can! Great vid boys, the falls at the beginning hurt me just watching lol

  • Hey Scott. I’m gonna try your suggestions out this week. I made my highest box jump to date at 43 inches today, but I figured there had to be a better form after I saw a video of JJ Watt jumping 60 inches today.  One question…JJ goes up on his toes before jumping.  Does that help or hurt the jumping height?

  • Box jumps are killer, but if you want to increase your vert, cleans are definitely the way to go! I know you guys focus on powerlifting and bodybuilding. but take a jab at olly lifting. Definitely the way to go for athletic performance and peak power output! Great video guys!:)

  • Hello everyone,iam Joel..I have been struggling to grow taller for over 2 years and here is my personal positive experience.

    I grew almost 5 inches on a growing taller product about one year ago.

    My success was mostly attributed to the growth product called “Growth boom pro grow taller product” being a very easy to use product.

  • Can’t think of anything to comment so I’m just going to post a pancake recipe.

    1 1/2 cups milk
    1 egg
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups White Wings self-raising flour
    1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    1/3 cup caster sugar
    25g butter, melted
    Whisk milk, egg and vanilla together in a jug. Sift flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Stir in sugar. Make a well in centre. Add milk mixture. Whisk until just combined.

    Step 2

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush pan with butter. Using 1/4 cup mixture per pancake, cook 2 pancakes for 3 to 4 minutes or until bubbles appear on surface. Turn and cook for 3 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining mixture, brushing pan with butter between batches. Serve

  • when I did a box jump I could almost jump up to my shoulder I don’t practice or anything I might try to practice and try to beat the world record cause i’m only 15 I could train up to 5.6 feet I can already almost do 5 feet and I don’t practice or jump

  • I know what you mean by an inch can seem like a mile. I just got 56 inches today, and I was pretty scared to do it before I actually got it.

  • Its still amaze me just how many people don’t know about Nobaskeron Secrets (google search it) although many people improve their skills with it. Thanks to my friend who told me about it. I’ve improve my skills.

  • very good advice.. i have always just analyzed the jump and went for it… my chin has gotten some bruises( early on ) but now i kind of know how high i can jump, barely fail anymore.

  • Forget all method for g r o w taller “Growth-Sinerama-Wmx grow-taller-product” is really best!… I gained 2 inches without any side effects….

  • If he doesn’t play basketball. I wouldn’t expect him to dunk. I play ball. Squat and box jumps. And I can’t dunk yet. I’m 5’11. I’m improving my squat weight so I can get up there. Only can do 225 once. Trying to get to 270

  • Hey I think your videos are great. Really liked this one as you tell people to look at the box. Nearly all videos I’ve watched tell you not to look at the box and just keep it in peripheral vision but I am definitely not comfortable with that. Would love some tips on box jump overs.

  • what am i doing wrong if I keep smashing my shin on either jumping up or down. I have had two very nasty injuries due to box jumps (one even where I was off work for two weeks). Even my family want me to stop doing them, I rather fix what I’m doing rather than stop doing them. So any hints to what I could be doing wrong would be great

  • I read several articles saying 3-5 reps was essential for increasing box jumps. However, I feel like you’re always right about this kind of stuff haha

  • Good stuff! This fits in with something I read year ago about how the brain doesn’t really recognize ‘not’. For example, you tell yourself over and over, ‘don’t hit the tree, don’t hit the tree’, wham, you hit the tree.The idea being you are fixated on the tree, so, you hit it! Same idea here, look at where you want to be, and you’ll go there. (Also a great golf tip, don’t take you eye off the ball and you’ll hit it, every time!). Really like your videos. Thank you!

  • too late, i was about to watch this vid, but my friends took me gym before i could watch this.
    i decided to box jump and… well… my shin isn’t happy. ouch! 😉

  • In 5 months of using Growth Sinerama Wmx  Grow taller product, I have added 3 inches and my confidence level has increased. I never could imagine how great height can be influential to self-confidence.

  • thank you for the video and jumping hints. i am 68 years old and jump 41 inches…i would like to get this to 45 and hopefully this will help!

  • I have always been worried about my height since I can remember, my frame still had me looking for clothes in the kids section at 23. I figured my days of growing were left behind me, but one of my friends gave me Growth Sinerama as a gift, and after two short months, I am now taller than she is

  • Used your tips in the gym yesterday when doing my box jumps and instantly added 2 inches to my jump after tweaking my form and being more aware of the space around me!

  • Your videos are great in helping me with the why and demonstrating the how. I was an athlete (not that that matters) and even then when I did not know/understand the why and the how to I became frustrated and under performed. Thank you and because of this I will see gains in the morning!

  • What about tricks for when you miss? I noticed in your demo you had a spotter there. So does he just catch you in his arms like a damsel in distress or is there a safer way to do that?

  • Hi scott! Thx so much! I use to do box jumps a lot until i had a nasty fall and was too afraid to do it again. Thx to you, I feel much motivated to box jump again and set new pr’s. =) BTW what shoes are you wearing in this vid?

  • Thanks for an AWSOME tutorial man. I was already doing box jumps but my form was really bad and this really just helped me out a lot…THANK YOU. I’m gonna go on 4 weeks 3 times a week training and then I’ll be back here to let you how it went

  • Hey Scott! I had a weird idea for you, let me know what you think. I know you’re a busy man with gym, family time etc. but i was thinking, is it possible for you to maybe make a few videos cooking some easy high protein dishes that you eat after your workouts? or just your diet pretty much if you could, if not i totally understand man

  • Hmm the one thing I don’t do is box jumping!id have to build confidence first then,slowly but surely get to a few feet high if u don’t see a text from me in your next video that means I broke myself up trying to box jump��I’ll send you the medical bill,Scott ha!!

  • Did you get a steady cam mount?? Video looks  a lot smoother I like it! I think your camera man needs to work on framing you a little bit better, just a tip. Love the videos!

  • hey all, my friend had some good success with theSoaringBaller programme (just google it). Was pretty impressive seeing his results…

  • Hey Scott, could you please give some tips for beginners in working out. I have never been in a gym before and I would like to know what to focus on and what to avoid. Thanks a lot 😉 

  • Land the same way you take off! Challenge yourself with the next progression: Seated Box Jumps (link below).

  • For the average person, sure. But for those competing or breaking records… I’d say there’s nothing wrong with wanting to test your max jump, given all the other variables are safe and in place.

  • I just started box jumping a month ago. I’ve started out with 24′. and am going to 30′ next week. I feel comfortable with the 24′. another guy at the gym who has inspired me to box jump gave me this tip that I use now and he always does. What he does is he sets the lower boxes beside the highest box he jumps to and just walks down like he is on the stairs. makes it a lot easier on your knees. I skip a lot so I’m sure that helps in my leg strength. I’m 60

  • Yes I think this help alot… I love box jumping……. in thebpassni may have done it slighty wrong and that was for fun… now with those helpful tips I’ll do themnroght and have fun.

  • I used to fear box jumps before joining crossfit. Then began to love them…UNTIL! i ended up shinning myself from a box jump, pretty god damn bad. left shin in Jan 2019 ended up swollen, for months, was going to phsio for it. I thought this is gettin too expensive now, and im not seeing any improvments here, so went to GP. He told me ‘you’ve got additional bone here, that will heel on its own, in 2-3 YEARS!’ so dont waste ur money on phsio!??:o im now terrified of Box Jumps again lol. i still have one swollen leg compared to other. and its been 7 months:(

  • Its still shock me just how lots of people
    have no clue about Mobotallor Secrets (do a google search) although a
    lot of people grow taller using it. Thanks to my personal pal who told
    me about it. I grow 4 inches taller.

  • My coach says we should step down after every box jump to save our knees, what are your thoughts? I love your videos, ny #1 crossfit resource.

  • is it realistic to do this training for a couple of months and expect to increase my standing vert 4 inches I already have a standing vert of 25 inches I just want to increase it to 29 inches is it possible say 3-6 months if I train 2-3 times a week?

  • Anybody know what is Mobotallor Secrets about? I hear many people grow taller fast naturally with Mobotallor Secrets (look on google search engine).

  • Wow!! Thank you! Such great tips!! I like the one on 1:46 (stand straight up instead of squatting). Makes so much sense. There really is a science to it!
