Plyo Box Work | Tone It In Ten

I’m back with another quick 10 minute workout. Here is what you will need for this workout:

  • A plyo box
  • OR a gym with a plyo box (most should have them!)
  • OR a make-shift plyo box. Make sure it is sturdy and slip-proof. In my house, I have a very strong and wide bench that would work along with a storage cube that is full of heavy, old books that work suffice. You don’t want it slipping out from under you.
  • Optional: Dumbbells. If this is too easy for you (go you!) hold some light dumbbells by your side.

I have been doing heavy lifts three days a week (bench, squat & deadlift), but this is the perfect workout for me on those days when I still want to either go to the gym or get a workout in, but I’m not scheduled to be doing my heavy lifting. I have been loving full body circuits and plyometric work those days!

Here’s what you do:

For the split squats put one leg behind you on the box in round 1, then switch and use your other leg for round 2 🙂

Instead of linking the sometimes crappy/unhelpful videos on how to do each (and in an effort to drive some interaction with you guys- which I love!) just let me know in the comments if you have questions on how to do any of these exercises! I’d be happy to explain or even film/photograph a demo if interested!

Link your blog post down below if you have any quick or at-home workouts you have created or recommend!

    This workout looks great! I love plyo work – I find it’s super beneficial for building running speed, especially for a finishing kick at the end of a race!

      I know right! I remember the first time I did them in the gym. Tried to hold wayyyy too much weight. Gotta learn to balance first haha!

  3. I’ve never heard of a Plyo Box! Thanks for sharing and teaching me! 😀 I think I’ve seen these at the gym but not very often. Usually all the cool equipment is stuffed away in the corner hidden for personal training only :[

    This seems like a great, short workout though! Thanks for sharing! Pinning for later :]
