is there a conversion for height on box jumps for those of us who are jumping challenged?
e.g. if I have a 20" max vertical jump (example only) should I use a 75% (e.g. 15") box for box jumps in the WOD? or even 50%? I can't think that jumping max for reps is what is intended.
Thanks.

You don't need a 20" vertical to jump onto a 20" box. In any case, go with whatever height box you can manage.

thanks. I guess I treat it like weights then - start with something I just manage and then increase over time.
