Kneel to Box Jump

  • Advanced
  • Plyometric Jump Box · Bench · Deck Step
  • Full Body

Setup instructions

1) Place the plyo box/bench in front of you (about a foot or 2) and kneel down.

Perform instructions

1) Lean into your feet slightly and jump up. As you do this, move your feet in front so you end up in a low squat position. You're aiming for a flat back and knees bent around 90 degrees.

2) Press into your feet and jump onto the platform. Keep low once you're on top.

3) Jump backwards off the platform - let the balls of your feet make contact with the floor first. As you land, cushion the impact by coming into a squat position.

4) Repeat.

Note: you can generate momentum by swinging your arms up (step 1).
