What is the Invisible Box Challenge... and how to do it?

Share

The Invisible Box Challenge may be a new internet sensation, but it has been around for a number of years. Reddit user TroyKing said two years ago that he taught himself to step over an invisible object by first using a real one.

Just like planking, the invisible box challenge has taken on a life of its own.

When Ariel Olivar, a cheerleader in Manvel, Texas, USA, showed off her dexterity at defying gravity, her video on Twitter was retweeted 136,000 times (and counting) and liked by over a quarter of a million users.

Olivar tells ABC13 she chose to try it after being egged on by the rest of her squad.

In the washroom area, Vikas swears that he supports Arshi, who has heard Akash say that they were against Arshi and her captaincy. When Vikas asked, "What is heavier - one kilo iron, one kilo cotton or a kilo gold?" both Arshi and Hina Khan had it wrong.

Started a few days ago, videos of youngsters taking up the insane challenge are doing the rounds and wowing the hell out of people. It's actually kind of challenging keeping it there.

This isn't a new trend, but the cheerleader's video helped revive interest in the trick.

"The technique.is to bring the other leg higher than the other as if you are actually stepping over a box". All you have to do is imagine a box placed in the room and just "step over it" like you would do if there was an actual box and walk forward.

"You'll notice [the] body rotates towards the leg on the "step" as well". Star Trek actor William Shatner tweeted about the challenge, saying "And BTW don't ask me to do the invisible box challenge; the answer is no". 'Very explosive hip flexor, abdominal and glute strength is what is driving the leg up and over the box, ' Samuel said.
