Box Jumping For Beginners:
The best way to learn how to box jump is by yourself. You will need a sturdy surface (a floor or wall). You must have some sort of padding such as a tarp or even just your own body weight. If you are not sure about what kind of surface would be suitable, then try using a towel on the ground. Make sure that it doesn’t get dirty.
You may use any type of jumping rope, but make sure that it’s not too stiff. Use a light one so that you don’t injure yourself while doing the exercise.
Once you have chosen your surface, start practicing the basic movements. Once you feel comfortable with them, increase the difficulty level until you reach your maximum potential. Do not rush into things! Take time to practice these exercises at least once every two weeks or whenever there is free time available. You may also perform these exercises with a partner or in a group.
Be sure to take turns and to have fun during the entire process!
Jumping Rope: This is one of the most basic and common ways of warming up. Be sure to do this every once in a while to maintain your agility. Try counting to 100 as you jump over the rope. It will help you build endurance and stamina for other types of exercise.
Body Weight: Some people are afraid of the box jump. They are afraid that they will not make the jump, fall, or get hurt in any way. To get over this fear, you should practice your own body weight. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and bend your knees slightly. Try to jump up as much as you can.
Try to land on your toes and then push off to jump again. Do this at least 50 times. Be sure to take breaks if you feel like you need to in order to prevent injury.
Ladder Drills: Use a ladder or find something that can act as a ladder. Stand near the bottom of it and try to touch the top rung then come back down. Do this at least 10 times every day for better results. You can also do this with your legs straight and bent. The latter is more difficult so make sure to always start off with the easier version.
Skipping: This is a fun way of getting yourself prepared for the box jump. Make sure that you have enough room to fully skip. Try to do half skips and full skips. Put some effort into it by using your arms. This will warm up your muscles and get you ready for action.
Sideways: This is one of the most fun ways of practicing for the box jump. Try to do it fast and get into a rhythm. Be sure to take breaks when you need to and have fun while doing it!
Stairs: This is very similar to doing the sideways drill, but instead you are using stairs which will help you get more height. Find a flight of stairs and stand at the bottom. Try to jump over each stair until you get to the top. Once you are at the top, walk back down and do it again. If the stairs are too far away from where you are practicing, then find another set of stairs that are closer.
Flexibility: Staying limber is very important in order to prevent injury. Try some basic stretches in order to get your body ready for action. This may include the splits, reaching for your toes, or even touching your nose with your finger. Be creative and stretch those muscles!
How to Increase Your Performance and Success
There are many ways that you can increase your ability to jump higher. The following tips and tricks can help you on your way to becoming a jumping pro in no time:
-If you want to increase the height of the box that you are jumping on, try stacking books underneath it. This way, you will always be improving your own abilities and will never outgrow the exercises.
-Try to eat foods that are rich in nutrients and vitamins. Your body is a machine and needs fuel in order to operate at its full potential. Be sure to eat healthy in order to get the most out of your workout routines.

-Performing other exercises, such as running, can help you get more out of your jumping exercises. This is because your body will be used to the strenuous activity and will be able to endure longer and harder.
