Plyo Box

Up Your Game

What is it?
A platform that adds challenge to whatever exercise you do. The boxes come in different heights, ranging from 10cm to 60cm – but you can stack them as high as you like.

What’s it for?
Boosting calorie burn. Building strength. Improving balance. Toning your body. It’s perfect for exercises that work your muscles hard and fast (which is why we call them plyometric exercises).

Who’s it for?
Anyone looking to supercharge their workout. This is a demanding piece of kit.

What do I do with it?
Push-ups, dips, burpees, lunges or just simple steps. Try some of these moves and you’ll immediately feel the difference:

The Box Jump

  1. Stand in front of the box and bend your knees.
  2. Use your arms to give you momentum to jump onto the box.
  3. Land on two feet in a squat position. Step or jump off, and go again.

The Runner Tap

  1. Stand in front of the box. Put one foot on the box then jump one foot down.
  2. Do the same with the other foot. Repeat as fast as you can.

The Step-Up

  1. Put one foot on the box and keep it there throughout your reps.
  2. Lift your toes on the back foot (so you’re not tempted to push off that leg) and push through the front leg to get you up onto the box.
  3. Keep your back foot in the air then slowly lower it back to the floor.
