Higher Jumps Vertical Jump Training Resistance Bands
Speaker 1: Today we've got a bit of a jumpchallenge. I'm going to show you a little bit of a workout here. It's going to add alittle bit of an endurance portion of it as well as vertical leap. Grab you a nice boxthat's a little challenging for yourself, get your bands on and then lay out a benchor anything that you're going to jump over, it's going to be a barrier. So make it a littlebit challenging, but make sure that you can get over and back. Let me show you real quickand then we'll run through a set. So I got my box height here, make sure you got yourbands on. Let me just tell you when you're wearing the bands and you're working on yourvertical leap you want to make sure that you
control your knees. Don't let them controlyou. A lot of benefits, we've talked about this in hundreds of other tutorials I've postedfor you, but you got to make sure that when you're wearing the bands when you land workagainst the resistance and you're going to build your hips so quick, but if you let themcontrol you or you're not strong enough to do these types of things without the bandson, you probably want to start doing these types of exercises without the bands first.So let's jump into it here. Get your box height a little bit challenging. We're going to goless reps, but I'm going to show you both exercises. Get a good arm sweep on top ofthe box. Soft landings, you either hop back
or just step off, whatever you feel comfortablewith. The most important thing is you get up, get down, get up, get down. It's not afast pace, we're going for height. Nice soft landings. The second part of the exercisewould be speed, but under control. We're going to go over, all about getting your knees up.Let's jump into the workout. We're going to go 8 max jump heights and gofor a 15 second burst right after that for speed. Let's go and get started. 8 reps righthere. That's one, two, three. Make sure that you're landing neutral like that. Don't letyour feet come together, stay under control. I think I got two more. The last one. good. Now we got about 15 secondburst here for speed. Try to get up, get around,
get back over. Readyé Good. Make sure youget your knees up on those. If you start getting dizzy, I got a little bit dizzy there at theend, take your time, maybe don't spin around so fast. Catch your breath, that's a littlebit of endurance. Run through that, three or four sets and push yourself hard.
How Big Can a Person Get
Hey, Vsauce. Michael here.Ten centimeters about four inches.This is how much taller on average people are today than they were 150 years ago.Better nutrition and medical care early in life has allowed us to bettertake advantage of the blueprints within our genes.Blueprints that carry plans for just how big a healthy human being can get given
an optimal environment.In terms of height, those plans rarely exceed 7 feet 6 inches. But individuals with endocrine disorders,for instance a tumour, near the pituitary gland in the braincan experience growth that occurs more rapidly and for a longer period of time than usual.For instance, Igor Vovkovinskiy, who at 7 foot 8 inches is thetallest man currently living in America.The tallest living person anywhere on Earth
is Sultan KÃ¶sen, who at 8 foot 3 inches tall also holds the Guinness world record for largest hands and feet.But the tallest person ever officially recorded was Robert Wadlow. He was the size of an average adult malewhen he entered kindergarten at the age of 5.When he died in 1940 at the age of 22, he was 8 foot 11 inches tall.Andre the Giant
was 7' 4quot;.And this is me holding a 12ounce can. Here's Andre doing the same.Human size variation is fascinating, but what's the maximum, biologically how big can a human getéAnd more importantly, how big are you reallyé It turns out that today, now in history, average human height
is probably quite near the genetic limit.By manipulating the very genes responsible for height, we may be able to add an extra 15centimeters or so to that average, but beyond that we are likely to hit a ceiling.In order to regularly produce people over 8 feet tall, 2.44 meters, those people would probably need to be a different shape.Not human shaped.
This is because of the squarecube law. As a shape grows, say, taller,its volume increases at a greater rate. Take a look at this cube.If we make it 10 times larger, well, sure, it's 10 times as tall,but the area covered by its faces is 100 times larger and its volume, the space within it, is 1000 times larger. Now, since weight is connected to volume, this cube only has one hundred times thecrosssectional area to support itself,
