Learn How To Jump Higher

ANYONE can increase their vertical leap and learn how to jump higher!

The key is understanding the role your body type plays. Age, gender, race e.t.c., do not play as important a role. You need to do an assessment of your own individual response to training, as this varies from person to person. just assigning you a list of exercises simply doesn’t cut it if you want to really jump higher…you NEED a cycle based on exercises for your given body type, concentrating on your weaknesses. These exercises should cycle from Strength to Explosiveness to Plyometrics.

Basic Steps To Get Started

1. Assess your current strength and your level of experience with previous methods of training. The most effective way to get gains is to build a brand new strength platform. After this start utilizing an explosion phase. This will result in further inches.

2. Practice Lifts. Total body strength is a key factor for such an athlete and there is no better exercise than the full back squat. This provides you with progressive increases on spinal loading, which, in turn, stabilizes you under tension, and also improves stretch-response of both hamstrings and hip muscles.

3. The squat should be the main exercise of your lower body workouts. 6-8 decent lifts gets the best strength improvements and vertical carryover. For the upper body days, use the same philosophy, with the central exercises being bench press, overhead press variations, pull-ups and dips. Remember to work often overlooked muscles at the end of your workout - muscles such as hip flexors, the shins , transverse abdominals e.t.c.

4. Ensure that you use a lifting technique in a safe and effective manner. Undergo 3-5 week strength phases for both lower and upper body. Done correctly, you should see gains of 5% each week. Following this, you will be able to see how your jump is bound to increase.

5. Correctly use explosive and plyometric training as well as your strength training. These are your "field workouts" and are completed pre-weights. That is, on Day 1 you begin by engaging in a series of tempo runs, sprints and low-intensity plyometrics (after the proper warm-up of course). By the time Phase 3 comes around, this will have gradually switched to shorter tempo runs, overspeed (downhill) sprints and high-intensity plyometrics.

6. Concentration on the heavier weights should fade as you progress through the phases.

7. Visualize by closing your eyes, imagining yourself exploding upwards. Visualize yourself with large leg muscles that are coiled like springs, ready to propel you higher. Say to yourself "I feel myself getting more powerful and much lighter." Then jump again. You should notice a marked increase in your vertical jump. (Sports psychologists have long recognized the effectiveness of "mental practice" in improving athletic performance.)
