"According to Douglas, this explosive move will raise your heart rate while forcing you to maintain power output. You gotta be able to catch air to make that jump! Get ready because this burpee + box jump combo will leave you with better toned arms, core, and legs."
Plyometrics exercises like box jumps can help make you faster, more agile and stronger. Start with one foot on a box or an aerobics step. Jump sideways to switch feet on top of the box. Keep the core engaged and an athletic stance and be sure to bend the knees as you land. Start with 30 seconds at a time -- or incorporate it into a Tabata routine.
