Why This Cheerleader's Mind-Blowing Invisible Box Stunt Is Sweeping the Internet

Could you step over an 'invisible box'? Internet goes wild for new viral trend where people appear to walk on air (but ...

It seems that 2017 has found its own internet fad just before 2018 begins with the "invisible box" challenge.

The trick isn't new to the internet and has been circulating on Reddit since 2014.

In a video posted on YouTube, dancer Marcos Grados, from Guadalajara, Mexico, also manages to incorporate the move in to one of his routine.

To pull off the trick, you have to jump with one foot, while your foot on the "box" is still. Olivar's video follows another from August from a football player in Indiana.

"The technique, if you want to make it look like [her video], is to bring the other leg higher than the other as if you are actually stepping over a box".

Senate Confirms Kirstjen Nielsen to Lead DHS
Nielsen also will be the only DHS secretary who has previously worked at the department. A confirmation vote on her nomination is expected later this week, the report added.

In one of the first instances seen of this trick, back in August 2014, the video has been viewed nearly 889,000 times.

So the performer has to essentially hop forward on one foot while keeping the other fixed in mid-air.

"You'll notice [the] body rotates toward the leg on the step as well; there's a ton of oblique and ab stability maintaining that position".

The leg that is stepping on the box uses a great deal of hip flexor, glute and core stability. The successful attempt went viral with more than 142,000 re-tweets, and it's now inspiring many users to try the trend. Several people are trying this and recently a high school cheer leader - identified as Ariel - accepted this challenge and left people on social media stunned.
