Split bench jumps - find any bench in the gym and straddle it; quickly squat until you touch the bench then jump up onto the bench; jump down so that you are straddling and repeat!
Lunge jumps - step forward into the lunge position; jump straight up land back in the same lunge position - Or...step into the lunge position; jump straight up and land with opposite leg in front - harder but better workout.
All of the jumping has really helped me with my lifting. I have no lifting background so the jumping has helped me develop explosion from the hips and glutes.
As far as boxing, my trainer has a boxing background and he puts on padded thingies and I hit him! So far, he has sustained no injuries.
