How to do a box jump

The key do doing this exercise correctly is picking the right-sized box. Ensure the height means that you can jump and get both your feet completely onto the box. 

Stand approximately 25cm in front of a steady firm platform/box that you are going to jump onto. The height of the platform will depend on ability and fitness level.
