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

The idea is to step up on to the "box" with one foot and swing the other over it. Social media users are going insane trying the invisible box challenge. The 16-year-old cheerleader from Manvel High School in Texas appears to defy gravity by patting an invisible box and then "stepping" onto it. An Anderson University football player posted a video of it in August, and it's just as flawless.

The move has a name - The Invisible Box Challenge.

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

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

While a small minority seem to have effortlessly mastered the trick, others fail hilariously, with some tripping over their own feet and others just falling straight over. "I realized I had got it down pretty well because of the reactions of my teammates", he told Men's Health.

"Very explosive hip flexor, abdominal and glute strength is what is driving the leg up and over the box".

If you thought walking on air wasn't humanly possible, the latest fad to sweep the internet will make you think otherwise. Challenges such as Planking, The Harlem Shake, Ice Bucket Challenge, Mannequin Challenge, among others, have been quite a rage on the Internet, with people enthusiastically participating in them. It's basic mime, but it's impressive enough to have inspired thousands of less agile challengers to share their own attempts (warning: you may fall on your face).
