Learn how to design and build these DIY plyometric boxes using the Easel software from Inventables and the X-Carve CNC. These can be designed in a variety of sizes and there are so many workouts you can do with them.
Three years ago, I became the proud new owner of an X-Carve CNC from Inventables. At that time, my husband started suggesting we design and build plyometric boxes for working out. I went as far as designing them in Easel, and that’s about it. Since we’ve been doing a lot of workouts at home lately, I figured no time was better than the present to finally get to work on this project.
I’m partnering with my friends from Inventables and showing you how to design and build these plyometric boxes in my latest YouTube video!

How To Use A Plyometric Box
Plyometric boxes (or plyo boxes) can be used for so many different workouts. The most common workout to use them for is box jumps. With these boxes being rectangular, you can flip it on any side and have a different height to work with when doing box jumps.
I designed two of these boxes, mostly because I am about as coordinated as a baby giraffe, and also because I kind of assumed my youngest wouldn’t be able to hit a 24″ vertical leap just yet.
He very quickly proved me wrong and was pretty darn proud of himself when he realized he could make this jump.
It’s okay, though, because the smaller box is still great for so many workouts including incline pushups.
Either of the boxes can also be used for tricep dips as well! Due to my aforementioned lack of coordination, I’ll likely not be using these for box jumps, but I will be using them for another favorite workout of step ups. It’s a great workout for strength and cardio, but add in some dumbbells for some bicep curls during the process and you’ve got a great upper AND lower body workout!
