How to Increase Vertical Jump Quicker Than Expected

12 March 2011 One Comment

If you are looking for how to increase vertical jump, it really is not very hard. The key is to get the right workouts that will get the desired results, and when we have some jumping workouts, you can find out how to increase vertical jump very quickly.

In my years of coaching, there have been a lot of bad habits that I have had to break jumpers from in order to focus on the things that are most important. Those things that are most important are simple things like focusing on fast twitch muscles that are responsible for explosive movements in things such as sprinting and jumping. By working on exercises that focus on that, you will find that those movements will improve and your sprints and jumping will get better.

The next thing is that you need exercises that mimic jumping. Without that, you will never be a good jumper, so it makes sense that you have to jump. I have done a lot of plyometric exercises with boxes and hurdles and things so that you can strengthen the specific muscles for that. By performing box jumps and depth jumps as well as ladders and working on quickness, you can start jumping higher more quickly than if you did most typical workouts.

Another great way if you are looking for how to increase vertical jump is to use jump rope exercises because it also works your calf muscles that are part of your jumping and quickness. By focusing on both legs together and each leg separately, you can work every muscle in your calves and all the supporting muscles in order to give you better balance and ability to jump from any position rather than just a normal standing jump. Because we all know that during basketball and volleyball, you don’t always jump from a normal stance. Usually you jump from weird angles and need to get the most out of every possible jump wherever you are.

So focus on exercises like box jumps and depth jumps as well as jump rope workouts and some of the other jumping workouts that I have that can give you that quickness and agility so that you can learn how to increase vertical jump as best as possible and as quickly as possible. Because remember that you must keep your fast twitch muscles strong so that you can increase quickness and jumping ability.
