    Hi,

    Is there a substitute for box step down exercise. I have tried various heights and I always have an issue with my right knee after the workout. How about side step down as an alternative or suggestion for any other exercise that would have the similar effect.

    Thanks

    I’d suggest single side step downs off your box. Try lowering down just to touch the heel and then back up. You knee issue could be strength related. I also suggest regular squats as all of your body weight on one leg is like squatting twice your body weight. You may not be ready for that much load. Also consider a lower box to step off.
