Combining the increased force, production and speed which you obtain from a plyometric box workout offers any athlete the edge within their chosen sport and will help increase lean body mass.
We’ve already looked at some basic plyometric box exercises, with our Top 10 Plyometric Box Exercises article. This takes the plyo box to another level, mostly incorporating a weight.
Try the following workout using kettlebells (or dumbbells) initially to ensure technique is correct. To move to another level, try using a weighted barbell once you are comfortable with each motion.
Before you continue, please remember that you need to warm up.
If are are unsure about some of the terms used in this article, it’s worth having a quick read through our Glossary of Terms before you get started with your workout.
Tip: Try performing a squat on top of the box for an extra challenge.
Tip: try performing this move without fully sitting on the box. Just touch the box and then stand upright.

These exercises could be used together to build an independent, new and exciting workout, which will increase heart rate and get your whole body engaged. Or they could be used within your existing workouts to replace exercises than you find dull and boring.
Before you finish, remember that you should spend time cooling down.
