A Fifty-Inch Box Jump Is Easy for Me

Mike Trout says 50 inch box jumps are easy for him

In an interview with the LA Times about his off season work out regiment Mike Trout confessed “In fact, since a 50-inch box jump is easy for me, I’ll hold a 25-pound dumbbell in each hand to ramp it up.” That means Trout jumping on a box as high as his elbows is no problem for him. It’s so easy he has to hold 50 pounds of weights to make it difficult. Try jumping while holding 2 gallons of milk (16 lbs) and see how high you can get.

Here is video of Mike making a 60 inch box jump during an off season.
