MOVEMENT TIP: The Box Jump

It literally does what is says on the.. well... box. From a standing position on the ground, you just take a big leap onto a box, stand up straight and then step back down again. The great thing about Box Jumps is playing with the height - we suggest you start off low as your first few box jumps may feel a little intimidating and you can gradually built the height up as you feel more comfortable. When starting out, or trying a higher box, don't use one with hard, sharp edges as hitting the box with your shins can lead to a nasty gash on the shins.
