Re: increase box height

I am still smiling since I checked on-line and saw they for over $100.00 new.

Re: increase box height

Also,
Hit up the local surplus store. I use old ruggedized shipping containers as my boxes, and I store all my loose crap, bands, jumpropes, forearm stuff, in them. I have two were used for dot matrix printers. With the lid open, upside down they are 20", closed, they are 24.5.

Just a thought. Good place to pick up old cargo nets to.

Re: increase box height

Well played. But if you decide you need something mid-way standard cinder blocks are 8" tall. I made an 18" bench that I jump up on when a 20" is called for in the WOD. I put it on on blocks whenever 24" box is required and call it even.

Re: increase box height

Of course, I train outside, so I guess I could go really low tech and dig a hole, then jump out of it.

as long as it didn't rain a few days before the WOD.

Re: increase box height

That brings new meaning to "going to failure," Frank; if you don't make the jump, you're not going home.

My experience as well, with me and clients ranging from 160 to 220 lbs. I did use a carriage bolt and glue to permanently affix the lid to the frame, just to be sure.

Boxes can also be used to carry and store stuff, like Frank C mentioned with his boxes.
