Max-height box jumps
Take 10 minutes to work up to a max height box jump
- Focus on explosiveness; pull your knees as high as you can to help clear the edge of the box
- If you’re stacking plates on top of a box, make sure they are stacked in a stable way
- Pair up with 1 or 2 other people per box and take turns making attempts
For time (15 min cap):
27 wall balls (20/14, 14/10, 10/6)
27 box jumps (24/20, 20/16, 16/12)
21 wall balls
21 box jumps
15 wall balls
15 box jumps
9 wall balls
9 box jumps
- Intent: This is a sneaky high number of reps, so make a plan and stick to it. Aim to push the pace on the wall balls and box jumps, then use the run to recover.
- Who can go unbroken through the wall balls? Give it a shot, or as few sets as possible. Swim your arms to save them.
- For the box jumps, think about what it took to jump super high in the max height box jumps, and utilize those same components to optimize every rep. Don’t ignore your arms, they’re an important part of jumping.
- Save your achilles and avoid rebounding unless your coach approves.
