Who Can Use the Escape Fitness Plyometric Jump Box?
Jump box exercises can be quite intense for those who do not exercise regularly. Therefore, it is recommended that you should already do at least some level of exercise before you use this product.
Caution: It is not advisable to use this product when first starting out, as this could potentially cause muscle injury or ligament damage.
How Do I Use the Plyometric Jump Box?
There are a number of ways in which you can use the Plyometric Jump Box to help boost your speed, strength and endurance. The main three box jumps you can perform include:
- Lateral Box Jumps: Jumping from side-to-side across the box.
- Frontal Box Jumps: Jumping forwards onto the box (see below image).
- Transverse Box Jumps: Jumping forwards onto the box from a sideways starting position.
Once you're confident performing these exercises, you can increase the intensity by adding weight, isolating one leg or transposing into other exercises (i.e. burpees).
Why Try Plyometrics?
Plyometrics are so good because they are fun, intense and great for building explosive power. Using natural movements such as jumping, stepping or hopping, you will make quick lower-body muscle gains while also increasing your stamina and endurance. These exercises should be a staple in any training regimen that's tailored towards high-level athletes in sports such as:
- Track running
- Track jumping
Innovative Honeycomb Design
Though the Escape Fitness Jump Box may look simple at first, it actually has a thoughtful design with safety and practicality in mind. The honeycomb design of the box is used to create a hybrid of both hard and soft foam.
- Hard foam ensures stability when using the jump box and provides a safe landing place for your feet.
- Soft foam cushions impacts on the knee or shin should the exercise manoeuvre go wrong.
The hybrid foam honeycomb is there to help the user build confidence when performing jump box exercises, as there is less risk of pain and injury.
Suitable for Beginners
If you're looking to try your hand (or feet) at box jumps, then the 150mm Escape Fitness Jump Box is the ideal starting point. This smaller jump box is high enough to push inexperienced muscles to the max without being too dangerous for novice users.
Up the Levels
As you grow in confidence using the 150mm Escape Fitness Jump Box, you can turn up the intensity by increasing the height. To do this, you can purchase additional jump boxes either in this size or the other sizes available (300mm, 450mm or 600mm). All Escape Fitness Jump Boxes feature Velcro straps to attach together easily.
Target Markings for Improving Form
To encourage proper form, the Escape Fitness Plyometric Jump Box has integrated markings at the top to show where to aim your feet. This helps you achieve perfect form while executing jump box exercises to ensure a fuller range of motion. In addition, correct form will reduce the likelihood of sustaining harmful injuries during exercise.
