Box jumps are a plyometric exercise used to create powerful legs. Box jumps are recommended only after a significant level of strength has been achieved with the legs. A common recommendation is to squat 1.5 times your body weight before beginning plometric exercises. Athletes in volleyball and basketball use box jumps to increase their vertical leap – an important component of their sports.


  • Stand with your feet directly underneath you.
  • Jump up onto the box, landing with the feet directly underneath you.
  • Immediately jump back down, landing with your feet directly underneath you.
  • Repeat without pausing during the landing phases.


  • Just tucking the legs instead of truly jumping
  • Hunching and not keeping the chest up
