    The box jump is an excellent exercise! It's cardiovascular, it's strength endurance and it's fun! I love it for a complete leg workout. It targets the entire lower half of the body and if you keep your chest up and core tight it's going to work those core stabilizing muscles that a lot of people forget about! Try different height jumps to find what gives you the best burn within your mobility range. Happy jumping ;)
