How do I perform a single leg box hop up with stabilization to the front?

Stand facing the box with your feet straight ahead shins in line with your second and third toe core engaged in an athletic stance. Bend your knees then pick one leg off the ground held directly next your supporting leg. Squat down, and then explode up using your legs and arms to propel you upwards onto the box, landing squarely on the box and bending your knees and contracting your core and glutes to stabilize the body. Hold the position for 3-5 seconds to ensure you're completely stable, step down to the beginning position and repeat.
