I took this advice today and attempted box jumps for the first time. I'm not really sure why I have never tried box jumps before today. Maybe it's because I am the biggest clutz, ever, and was worried I'd trip and fall on my face. Maybe it's because I have seen one too many pictures of bloodied shins at the hand of a plywood box. Or, perhaps I was just being plain old lazy.
I shoved all of the excuses aside and went for it this morning. And guess what... I survived. No falling on my face, no bloodied shins, no laziness. I actually did pretty damn good - three sets of 10. And I've decided to challenge myself to train for the 24" box. Bring on the bloody shins.
