I’m trying to find different ways to accomplish lower body power exercises. We’ve done box jumps and single legged box jumps, lateral jumps and broad jumps. This exercise is a variation of the RFESS using a single legged jump. I like it because it not only stresses the single leg, but it’s also safer than the regular box jumps we’ve been doing. Box jumps gets competitive with regards to box height and sometimes the box is higher than it should be. Missing the jump would mean a scrapped shin or even a face plant. Tough to explain that to a parent. This exercise seems to solve that problem.
Let me know what you think. The comment box is open.
