Box Jump

Box Jumps are a great way to implement a Dynamic Effort work load. They are relatively easy on the body but they keep the athlete from getting slow. It's a great way to get the body moving explosively after doing heavy squats or deadlifts. As the athlete progresses up in height, it also is a great hip flexibility gage as you will have to really be able to open up the hips to get to maximum height.
