Are you serious about your vertical jump training?

Correct training to increase your vertical leap is very COUNTER INTUITIVE.

The vertical jump is an explosion caused by the intense contraction of fast twitch muscle fibers.  Because of this, training to improve jumping is “anaerobic.”  Too many athletes are training in a way that that is mostly “aerobic”.

What is the difference in training?

Basketball players have been told that running cross country would increase their vertical. That is big misconception. Training with the cross country team can make your vertical jump to plummet.

Sprinting, like jumping is a much less aerobic event.  Do you see sprinters distance running to train for sprinting? NEVER! Then why so often do vertical jump programs make us PACING ourselves during our vertical jump training regimes?

NEVER NEVER NEVER PACE YOURSELF DURING YOUR VERTICAL JUMP TRAINING!

We have all seen it before. Athletes “running the stairs” or dog tired from doing speed ladder drills. Or maybe get done jumping rope for 20 minutes and you are worn out.. you are going to say to yourself, “Now that was a hard workout, surely that will improve my vertical.”

These are not examples of training explosively, so they are NOT going to see results in explosive moves. I guarantee you, they will not be satisfied. You must train for explosion and not endurance to improve your vertical jump.

“Explosive” training will feel awkward to start with.  You won’t get the same burn as training for endurance.  In a few ways training explosion is easier, it just requires much more focus and short term effort.

Doesn’t doing less to get better results sound like the best of both worlds? It is and you can find out how. To find out more on How To Jump Higher, visit this site.
