Tuck, Roll, Jump adds coordination and kinesthesia to the jump progression. Make sure to only perform this once you have mastered your landing technique.
Exercise 4: Tuck, Roll, Jump
Start standing with feet shoulder-width apart. Shift your center of gravity forward to roll your body out of the tuck. When starting out use your arms to swing forward and push off the ground with your hands. As you improve, use this method less and less. Generate enough momentum coming out of the tuck to get onto your feet. In a smooth movement, plant your feet, keeping your knees in-line, swing your arms and jump onto the box. Stand up into extension. Step down slowly from the box to the start position. Repeat for prescribed reps.
