If you’re going to be using the box for step-ups, step-downs, and stability work (as opposed to plyometrics), the lower box might be more versatile. Heel touches from a 12″ box, or even a 3″ yoga block, have been pretty helpful for me.
I’m a 6’0 male and my knee is somewhere around 21″ off the ground. If 75% of knee height is still the rule of thumb I should be using a 16″ box. I’m just starting out with this kind of exercise and am looking to buy a box – I’ve found 12/14/16″ and 16/20/24″ options.
Since both options have a 16″ side would I get more use out of having 12/14″ options or 20/24″ options? I’m training for mountain running and hiking if that makes a difference. Thanks!
