The lateral box jump combines the lateral jump and the box jump into one exercise. This time, instead of jumping laterally over a small object, you will jump laterally up onto a tall box.

Step 1: Start out just like in the box jump, but this time you will have the box or ledge to your left (instead of directly in front of you.)

Step 2: Using the same form as you would in a lateral jump, jump up and to the left, landing on top of the box. The idea is to jump just high enough to make it onto the box.

Step 3: Step down off the box.


I recommend doing a set jumping to your left, then a set jumping to your right. However, you could also alternate by stepping down onto the opposite side after each rep.
