Box jumps have this weird, mysterious hold over many of us, so much so that they can ruin an entire workout. How do you get past the fear of a bigger box? Do you stack weights on top of a smaller box? Do you lie to yourself about the actual height? I personally don’t like to look at the box while I jump. For example, during this past Tuesday’s workout of Deadlifts and Box Jumps, I never looked at the box while jumping. Now this isn’t a technique that I would encourage you to just try without practice, but this coming Tuesday when we perform them in our skill/strength session, you may fiddle around with it using a smaller box.
Trupti doesn’t trust me just yet to not look at the box but still gets the job done with ease.
