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.

I also had the honor of programming Jeff’s MMA workouts for his national title fight to defend his U.S. title belt back in 2003.

Since then both Jeff and myself have helped to train several Thai and MMA fighters for competition over the years.
