Only 50 box jumps?  Is that all?!?  Technique in Box Jumps is incredibly important.  When you do Box Jumps with bad technique, you are adding effort, tension, torque, and fatiguing yourself substantially faster.  So what do you do about it?  Think of a squat.  the mechanic is the same.  This is a long video, and an extremely useful video for how to Box Jump easier.  Enjoy!
