Why You Shouldn’t Perform Box Jumps As A Conditioning Drill

Why You Shouldn’t Perform Box Jumps As A Conditioning Drill

So today I pulled this article from the archives on training the box jump. As far as training for power and athleticism the box jump is supposed to be fairly idiot proof, especially if you compare it to trying to learn more complex movements such as Olympic lifting.

With that being I’ve still witnessed many people who butcher the box jump while training on their own. I thought today was good time to pull this article from the archives to help you in case your were in doubt about your box jumps. I know you’re going to find this article very helpful!

  1. Are you incorporating more athletic based drills into your strength and conditioning workouts? 
  2. Are you performing box jumps during some of your athletic workouts? 
  3. Do you execute box jumps like a conditioning drill? 
  4. Are you performing box jumps in a way to maximize benefit and minimize stress on your joints? 

So today I decided to get away from improper squatting, improper deadlifting, and improper kettlebell swing technique and switch over to another problem and address the improper use of the box jump exercise. Today I’m going to hit on why box jumps shouldn’t be used as a conditioning drill in your strength and conditioning program. If you’ve been using box jumps as a conditioning drill then make sure you take a minute to pump the brakes and read this article. You’ll be thanking me for it later.

8 Ways You’re Killing Your Strength Gains

  1. Are you failing to get the strength gains you want with your workouts? 
  2. Do you feel like you’ve hit a plateau in your strength training? 
  3. Is your strength training program getting you the gains you desire the most? 
  4. Are you training 5 or 6 days a week, but still not seeing the results you think you should be seeing? 

If you’re experiencing problems in making strength gains with your training then you need to evaluate what you’re doing, as well as what you might not be doing. I get it. I’ve been where you are before, but I don’t struggle with making strength gains anymore. Don’t misunderstand me I put the work in, but what I mean is that the work I put in is effective and it gets the job done now, but that’s only because of years of experience and study. With that being said I wanted to outline some things here that are probably holding you back from you being able to make your strength gains.
