Lately my wife and I have been doing a lot of Crossfit workouts. I love the efficiency of a 15-minute full-body workout that leaves you sore for days. Also, the results are pretty impressive.
Anyway, one of the common exercises are box jumps, and I’m a jumper. For whatever reason, jumping comes very naturally to me, so I wanted to have a tall box. My wife is also a good jumper, so I didn’t really need a very short box. We also have limited space, so I was happy to have a rectangle solution that satisfied 20″, 24″ and 30″ heights for box jumps, but I couldn’t find any plans that made the building part easy. So, I made my own, and am now sharing the plans.
Note: the plans deviate from how I actually built my box, but after giving it a lot of thought, I’ll build the box exactly as I describe in the plans next time.
Disclaimer: I am not an expert box builder. This is simply the way I built my box, and I decided to share it. I am only 150lbs, and have not thoroughly tested the endurance of the box at higher weights, by downloading these plans, you are recognizing that you may not hold me personally liable if your box breaks. If you do have suggestions for improvement, please post them in the comments.
