“Here’s what you need to know…
-Box jumps potentiate the nervous system for gains in strength and size, assuming you do them correctly.
-If you’re not getting full hip extension, you’re wasting your time.
-Those young geeks you see doing 50-inch box jumps just have fantastic hip flexibility rather than great jumping ability and explosive power.
-Quality is more important than quantity. Maximize the hip extension and land with sound technique.
-Perform box jumps as a potentiating exercise before you lift, not as a conditioning tool.
