Help with Box needed. My humble guess is that Box offers very useful skills that are good for everyday life. So I have practiced enough with two balls and can shift balls horisontaly reasonably well. Can you, guys, suggest me some preliminary exercises that lead to "full-fledged" Box pattern. Thanks in advance

Learn 3 ball shower in both directions and you should be able to do box very quickly. Box is basically a sync shower changing directions every throw.

No other way? I can do 3b shower (right), but not from left. I guess I am damned and just need more prayers...

You don't need to pray. You need to practise more with your left hand.
When you got the synchronous shower from the left fairly stable, change directions: 4 left, 4 right, 3 left, 3 right, 2 left, 2 right, 1 left, 1 right and there you are, that's the box.

I got the point. Luckely I can do left shower at least one cycle ))

I like the way Niels Duinker breaks it down here:

That’s pretty much how I approached learning it

Thanks I surely follow your advice

You can try siteswap 441. Maybe it will be easier for you to juggle box then

Sergei - - Parent

yes, sounds as good idea. I doubt there is direct transition between Shower and Box. Some advice to watch Niel's video and it is also not a good advice

When you can do the box write us what had helped to you)

Sometimes it's best not to think too much about it. It's why I recommended the cross arm reverse cascade.. if you can already do a reverse cascade then you can do it by 'seeing through it' - 'forget' that your arms are crossed and jumping straight into it.

Once you can do the two ball box then you're ready. You can stand in front of a bed (so you don't have to keep bending down to pick up) and keep trying to do it with three balls. The video above (Niels) is the best way to go about learning it. Try to keep the vertical throws their same columns and the horizontal ball is thrown with some force. The more still your arms are the more solid your box will be.

Practice a little bit but as often as possible.
