Box Jumps are an excellent exercise for developing explosive strength as they require you to develop your jumping force from a dead stop.
Select a medium sized box, stand in front of it (not too close that you will hits your knees or shins onthe way up), and then as quick as you can jump up onto it. Try and land as softly as possible. This is a good exercise to use for extra volume due to its low impact landings.
Some good alternatives to box jumps are:
One Step Box Jump - Similar exercise to the regular box jump but more sports specific
Seated Jump - Overcome inertia to improve explosive strength
Paused Frog Jump - Improve explosive strength and joint mobility with this great vertical jump training exercise.
