Lateral Hop To Single Leg Box Jump

Lateral Hop to Single Leg Box Jump is an explosive plyometric exercise used to work the lower body. It challenges coordination and balance while helping enhance agility and power. Starting with one foot on the ground, hop laterally to the side and land with the same foot on top of a box. Quickly jump off the box with the same foot, then hop back to the original position. Make sure to use the ankle, hip and knee of the jumping leg to get maximum height on the

00:00:0600:00:07
this video we're bringing you another
00:00:0700:00:10
power stability, or reactive stability
00:00:1000:00:12
exercise. On second thought, I take
00:00:1200:00:14
that back, what we're actually doing in this
00:00:1400:00:17
video is combining two videos that we've
00:00:1700:00:20
done previously into one monstrous
00:00:2000:00:24
exercise with practically innumerable
00:00:2400:00:26
progressions. I'm gonna have my friend,
00:00:2600:00:28
Brian, come out since he did both of the
00:00:2800:00:30
previous videos. What we're going to do,
00:00:3000:00:33
is we're going to combine that lateral
00:00:3300:00:35
hop to vertical to balance with the
00:00:3500:00:38
single-leg box jump. So now what you're
00:00:3800:00:40
going to have is a lateral hop to
00:00:4000:00:42
single-leg box jump to balance.
00:00:4200:00:46
How's that for a lot of control
00:00:4600:00:50
interjected into our explosive activity?
00:00:5000:00:53
Alright, so what you're going to do, once
00:00:5300:00:55
again, bound, right, one smooth motion,
00:00:5500:00:58
heal-to-toe landing on the box, and then
00:00:5800:01:01
I want you to stay on that one leg.
00:01:0100:01:06
Oh, that was pretty good.
00:01:0600:01:08
That was pretty good. I think you can do
00:01:0800:01:10
a little bit better. Right, so we're going
00:01:1000:01:12
to look at some of those same form
00:01:1200:01:14
cues. Notice he was very smooth; he
00:01:1400:01:16
didn't pause when he hit the ground here
00:01:1600:01:19
before he took off. I want a very small
00:01:1900:01:21
amortization phase there. Notice that he
00:01:2100:01:25
landed pretty softly, heel-to-toe, and
00:01:2500:01:29
that he also stabilized at the top.
00:01:2900:01:30
The one thing I thought we could do a
00:01:3000:01:33
possibly bit better job on is his
00:01:3300:01:37
accuracy. So, if he lands right behind
00:01:3700:01:38
this line
00:01:3800:01:48
I want him to land on this line.
00:01:4800:01:51
Nice job. Let's try one more time. This
00:01:5100:01:53
time I want you to think about getting a
00:01:5300:01:58
little higher.
00:01:5800:02:05
Almost, a little loud and then we didn't
00:02:0500:02:06
stabilize at the top, but I think you lost
00:02:0600:02:08
it because you you jumped off to the
00:02:0800:02:10
side a little bit. Right? So that accuracy
00:02:1000:02:13
comes into play, even contributing to
00:02:1300:02:15
whether or not we can stabilize when we hit
00:02:1500:02:16
the box.
00:02:1600:02:20
Let's try this one more time.
00:02:2000:02:25
Almost, almost. Let me give you one more
00:02:2500:02:27
shot, and then we're going to move on. Are you ready?
00:02:2700:02:30
Remember, plyometrics should be seen and
00:02:3000:02:31
not heard.
00:02:3100:02:36
Ninja-style, oh! This isn't our first take,
00:02:3600:02:39
so maybe I've worn Brian out just a
00:02:3900:02:41
little bit, but we'll keep going with all
00:02:4100:02:44
of the progressions that could be taken
00:02:4400:02:47
from this single progression. Right, which,
00:02:4700:02:50
in fact, is a progression of two previous
00:02:5000:02:52
exercises. So, we talked about we could
00:02:5200:02:54
increase the distance; we talked about
00:02:5400:02:56
that progression in the lateral hop to
00:02:5600:02:59
vertical video. We could increase the
00:02:5900:03:01
height of the box. That's really, really
00:03:0100:03:03
tough, guys. The ability to produce
00:03:0300:03:05
explosive force off a lateral hop,
00:03:0500:03:07
although it's extremely important to
00:03:0700:03:11
sport, we do have to be very careful how
00:03:1100:03:14
we introduce more height, because
00:03:1400:03:16
obviously that's also increasing a
00:03:1600:03:17
safety risk. We don't want anybody
00:03:1700:03:19
catching a toe falling over the top of
00:03:1900:03:21
the box. Catching a toe, and of course we've
00:03:2100:03:23
all seen, this where somebody runs their
00:03:2300:03:25
shin down the front of a box. That gets a
00:03:2500:03:27
little nasty. Alright, we don't want any of
00:03:2700:03:32
that, but increasing distance, increasing
00:03:3200:03:35
height, two potential progressions for
00:03:3500:03:38
increasing force production. The one that
00:03:3800:03:40
probably most people don't think of is
00:03:4000:03:44
incorporating, again, multiple planes. And
00:03:4400:03:46
realize we have two places we can
00:03:4600:03:48
incorporate multiple planes now. We have
00:03:4800:03:50
the lateral hop and we have the
00:03:5000:03:52
single-leg box jump. So I'm not going to
00:03:5200:03:54
go through all of the potential
00:03:5400:03:55
progressions here. We're obviously doing
00:03:5500:03:58
frontal to sagittal plane in that first
00:03:5800:04:00
one. Let's go ahead and show them what a
00:04:0000:04:03
transverse to sagittal plane would look
00:04:0300:04:04
like.
00:04:0400:04:05
So, he's going to start facing this way,
00:04:0500:04:08
he's going to take a transverse plane
00:04:0800:04:10
hop to the box, and then he's going to
00:04:1000:04:11
jump up
00:04:1100:04:13
on one leg and try to maintain that
00:04:1300:04:16
heel-to-toe soft landing with a
00:04:1600:04:19
stabilization at the end. You ready?
00:04:1900:04:22
You can do this.
00:04:2200:04:25
Holy cow, that looked better than the
00:04:2500:04:28
other ones. He just needs more complexity.
00:04:2800:04:30
He's one of those type of people- simple
00:04:3000:04:31
is too simple. You need lots of
00:04:3100:04:34
complexity. Alright, remember, that was
00:04:3400:04:36
transverse plane. We did frontal plane to
00:04:3600:04:38
start with. You could do sagittal to
00:04:3800:04:40
sagittal plane if you had a reason for
00:04:4000:04:42
that. You could do frontal to frontal
00:04:4200:04:47
plane. You could do transverse plane to
00:04:4700:04:49
frontal plane. All of these combinations,
00:04:4900:04:52
all you have to do is think about is what
00:04:5200:04:53
is his sport.
00:04:5300:04:56
What is his sport going to require of
00:04:5600:05:00
him? How can I incorporate those changes
00:05:0000:05:03
of direction into this particular
00:05:0300:05:06
exercise? Guys, once again, we're on a
00:05:0600:05:09
mission here to bring some control back
00:05:0900:05:15
to the freewheeling power exercise I
00:05:1500:05:19
see too much of. I see a lot of just, like,
00:05:1900:05:21
here, let's do box jumps. How we're gonna
00:05:2100:05:21
make them harder?
00:05:2100:05:23
We're gonna make them higher. And form goes
00:05:2300:05:26
out the window. Or, great, somebody's good
00:05:2600:05:27
at a sagittal plane box jump, but then
00:05:2700:05:29
you look at something like basketball,
00:05:2900:05:32
and ACL injuries don't happen in the
00:05:3200:05:34
sagittal plane. It's when people try to
00:05:3400:05:36
jump, and then bound off a transverse
00:05:3600:05:39
plane hop, or something, where they get
00:05:3900:05:42
that knee valgus and they collapse. I
00:05:4200:05:44
hope you guys enjoy this progression,
00:05:4400:05:46
enjoy all of the combinations. Thank you,
00:05:4600:05:48
Brian, that was that was a very impressive
00:05:4800:05:51
transverse plane to sagittal plane hop
00:05:5100:05:53
to balance. I want to see how many of you
00:05:5300:05:55
guys can pull this off. I look forward to
00:05:5500:05:58
hearing how you guys get results from
00:05:5800:06:01
this video, how your athletes increase
00:06:0100:06:03
their performance on the court or the
00:06:0300:06:05
floror or the field. I'll talk with you
