You should start at a comfortable distance from the plyo box, standing with your feet shoulder width apart. Keeping your head up and back straight, and engaging your glutes and hamstrings, quickly get into a quarter squat while hinging at the hips. Then, swinging your arms, push your feet explosively off the floor to jump onto the box. You should try to land as quietly as possible, bending your knees to a little more than 90 degrees as you land to absorb the force. Then step down off the box rather than jumping off to avoid the risk of injury to your knees and tibia.When starting out, choose a Power Systems box height that is something you are comfortable jumping onto so you reduce the risk of banging your shins. Gradually increase the box height as you progress in your training. As you advance, you can try different variations. For example, jump sideways onto the box, or combine box jumping with strength training by doing a squat followed by a squat jump onto the box.Plyo boxes from Power Systems are a great addition to any training routine for athletes who are serious about building strength and power.
