Thread: plyometric boxes

  1. #1

    Default plyometric boxes

    We want to make some wooden boxes for plyo jumps etc. What is the usual size or dimensions? We want boxes to jump onto and boxes to jump off, i am sure someone will be able to help. i have to be honest i am fairly new to box jumps but realise the use and relevance of them. i know a lot of guys use 2ft boxes but we want to try various excercises and experiment with them, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Crossfit's diy plyo boxes. Just made one for myself - does the job nicely!

    They look pretty good although my diy skills are not good, thanks.Would you say they were the average size most people would use?

    24" is quite a high box - I reckon, although I'm no expert -and crossfit use it for jumping up onto repeatedly. Would be good for depth jumps (jumping off and springing off on landing) too.

    You'd probably want some smaller ones for lateral jumps and other exercises.

    Loads of US stores seem to sell them but no British. Have a look at http://www.jumpusa.com/jump_boxes.html for some example sizes.

    I think you should have a variation of sizes and heights.

    If your using a bar its wants to be between waist and chest height

    Thanks everyone for the help and advice. I think we will have some wooden ones made, some high ones for jumping onto and off etc (Dont know the proper excerise names) and some low ones for lateral jumps etc.

    Boxing Brit what is the bar idea, how does that work? Please excuse my ignorance but I am relatively new to plyometrics.

    I remember the bar now, it is where you hold onto with your hands and jump over, is that right?
