Re: Ader Plyometric boxes

I know several people with nasty scars on their shins from jumping on straight sided or open sided boxes. Closed slanted boxes are the way to go!

It must be the "special" plyo box

Thanks Ian...good advice. I don't have enough experience with plyo boxes to know these things, so it helps to hear from you guys who've experienced it.

Slanted, closed it will be. Now I just have to find the best option...any recommendations? Need 20, 24

Both are 20x24x30 close sided boxes. Any experience with these? When tilted to the 24 or 30 side, is there a worry for the box tipping over?

thanks for all your advice

Here is another choice for you as well..20-24-30 for $125 shipped.

Our box, like the others you have listed, is very stable on all sides including the 30" side.

We build them in house and have both the standard "pyramid" style Plyo-Box available as well as the 3 sided beast..

I have seen shins beat up on every style box out there but we agree with the others and are not fans of the open sided boxes. I have actually seen jumpers miss and become entangled in the open sided box causing more injury then just a bruised shin!
