The Box Jump with Precision

The box jump is one of the best movements for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. However, it is often executed incorrectly. My football/lacrosse client is executing the box jump with precision. Key points are the following: from an athletic base, explode the hips up and out towards the box, drive hands/shoulders to the sky; drive knees high and absorb the forces on the box through the hip complex while bracing the abdominals; upon return, ensure ankles, knees, hips absorb and knees stay aligned over the midfoot.
