This exercise develops explosive power with an element of dynamic balance and body control. The lateral movement requires hip and core strength combined with a traditional jumping motion, where the athlete must maintain body control and equal balance of the feet.

To start: Find a low box or step. The key to this exercise is speed, so make sure the height is low enough that you can handle really quick repetitions.

In a quick, controlled movement, jump from the ground, and land both feet simultaneously on the box.
