This is no longer the world record, but it’s a good demonstration of hip explosion. You can really see how he pulls his knees up to his chest to get to that higher box. And, it kind of puts the 24 inch box into perspective, for anyone who’s a little leary of moving up from the 20. And also, who does snatches from his knees? Coming soon to a wod near you? Hmmm. Probably not quite yet.

Apparently, the new world record for box jumps is 61 inches for a vertical leap. This is also CFTT First Member Ellen Baier’s height, so if anyone wants to go for the record and box jump Ellen, let us know and we’ll throw her into a pair of stilettos and let you have at it.
