Now, box squats are tremendous training method to help build your power for your lower body and of course, lower body power increases your vertical jump. So, what we're going to do today is we're going to simulate our box. Now, box squat is typically you're putting a box behind you and the box is what we like to call a hot seat. You're going to open your hips, open your legs wide enough to be outside the box. Our box today would be a chair. So, we have our chair here; we're placing our legs outside the legs of the chair, giving our hips an opportunity to drop down and sit right down and back, giving us more power from the hips and heels to explode upward. So, we put our arms in, we use and then we jump. We down and then we jump. We load again and then we jump. Alright. As we practice, we're going to begin to build that lower body power to increase that vertical jump. My name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister. And that was just an example of how you position your feet for the box squat with a vertical jump.
