Jimmy Butler isn’t known as being one of the game’s greatest leapers, but by the looks of his offseason training regimen, that may change during the upcoming season.

This video show Bulls star Jimmy Butler performing an insane 50-inch box jump, which is impressive enough. But then consider that Butler did this jump after completing five sets of heavy squats and five sets of heavy cleans.

“He's training so he can still be explosive in the fourth quarter,” his trainer Travelle Gaines says.
