    is a 37 inch box jump considered good?

    Ive been doing this plyometric routine (for soccer) which includes box jumps.
    so far I have managed to jump 37 inches...is that good...?? im about 5'9 187lbs at this point.
    Ive only been at it for about 3 weeks.

    let me know what you think.

    If you're not tucking your legs, that is a 37 inch vertical, which is considered insanely good. It would place you in the top 5 overall at the NFL combine at any position. If you tuck your legs, it isn't great, but it isn't bad either.

    Oh I got you now....when i preform box jumps i do tuck in my legs. pretty much i stick to the typical form recommended when doing a box jump.

    My vertical jump is 21 inches..

    Im a beginner at this type of training but im looking forward to the challenge. so far im loving the results.

    not really a program...more like I took a little of everything and put it together my self.
    I used to train with heavy weight in the past (was not playing much soccer) and all that did was make me heavy, sluggish and slow....(got pretty strong though).
    I wanted a change so i started doing this split where i do some weights but high reps two days a week and two days of cardio/plyometric style training.

    in other words the split it upper body(Mon and Thursday..mainly weights) and lower body(mainly squats, plyometrics and sprints ) I rest wed(maybe a light soccer practice) and sat(maybe a light soccer practice) and play and have a game on sun.

    pretty much i had to create something to work with my schedule. so far this seem ok...

    my lower body workout I do:
    warm up pull ups and jump rope, then I squat not to heavy but explosive, then i streach a little and do box jumps...(usually end up doing a total of like 100 jumps), then some abs...then run stairs...and lastly i do some sprits.....

    so far ive lost about 2% bf and about 5-4 pounds. and i feel great my thighs are getting cut!
    but yeah....let me know what you guys think...i know its not very structured..but like i said i kinda made it up ...

    thanks

    Use Heal -> Ball of your feet
    Use Arm swing as you go up up
    Should be in full extension when about to take off ( Plantsr flexion, Knee in full extension and hip in full extension)
    Then bring ur knees up to ur chest as much as u can
    Make sure to not do many box jumps. After a set you should have a big brake because it is a high impact on your joints and can do a lot of damage. Same with reps. At least 20 seconds rest till the next jump

    This will show the incorrect and correct box jump form http://www.stack.com/a/box-jump-mistakes . You should land in a 1/2 to 1/4 squat position (i.e. the same position you take off in).

    a 43 inch box jump doesnt translate into a 43 inch vertical leap, so no.
