Track Field Training How to Increase Your Vertical Jump
Hi I'm Les Whitley. I'd like to take a fewminutes now and talk to you about how to improve your vertical jump. Your vertical jump isagain your ability to push force into the ground to propel your body upward overcomingthe forces of gravity, traveling upward through space. Knowing where you start or knowingwhere your vertical jump is to begin with is a great way to start. Once you identifywhat your vertical jump is usually measured in inches you know where you want to go andhow far you want to progress from as little as a gain of one inch up to three inches overthe course of a six to a twelve week time frame is actually a pretty good improvement.Putting force in the ground means that you
have got to get stronger, utilizing exercisessuch as the squat, to develop a good base of power for the lower body but then alsomaximizing the transfer of that power through incorporating exercises like the power cleanor the overhead snatch, the olympic movements which involve very speed oriented movementsto that you are maximizing that power output in minimal time. The vertical jump is a veryquick movement. You are putting maximal force in a very short amount of time. The otherthing becomes technique ideally setting yourself up as a spring, springing and loading yourselfup into a position, not to overcompensate by staying too long in a deep position sothat the muscles become taxed and fatigued.
You want to set yourself up by causing a nicespring effect swinging your arms down which preloads those muscles engaging the musclesof the hips, the muscles of the lower body, the calves and then forcefully swinging yourarms up high to again maximize that vertical leap so arms start up high, forceful drivedown and then rebound for maximal height.

okay guys don't How to Jump Higher talk about whypeople fail to increase the vertical explosion and why you don't have to I wanna lay down exactly how you canstart increasing your vertical in the next two weeks or quicker and thefirst thing is why do people not succeed versus thelack of knowledge have correct principles second is a lackof knowledge up correct practices and techniques so basically that's the differencebetween what you do
versus how you do it and there's a bigdifference something going down a little bit later a third was a lack of discipline orability to apply proper principles and techniques consistently over a period of time andthe last one to simply lacked proper nutrition company going to why you'rejust a little bit now why these problems so prominent nowhere's a big problem this summer the most popular programs out there arewritten by marketing gurus and ghost
writers and not real trainers so unfortunatelymost rating sites or were called affiliate sites and what they're doingis listing sites that are gonna give them the greatest commissions and touting those programs as the mosteffective but relate it's based on a commissionand not based on effectiveness be wary of that I've had a lot of peopleapproach me want to do affiliate programs
a lot of people approach me wanting todo on wanting me to writing a book and when Itell them I won't do it for certain price they just go out there have some ghostwriter knows very little about jumping write a training manual it's a it's ahuge disservice to the community stuff another reason is that correctexplosion training really is counterintuitive mean you'regonna train wrong and it's gonna feel like you're trainingright most coaches and trainers simply
are not experts out there you know I'mlisten to coaches train me the wrong way for many years itwas until I ran into the correct principles that I knew that they just weren'tproperly trained for that now what are the other things is discipline is not and it never was and it never will beeasy to come by so even if you have the rightinformation a lot about hard work is going to be up to you
and there's also just the lack of trueexperts not answer the questions that you have answered now what's the effective this on theathlete well basically a waste a lot of time your voice a lot of money and enthusiasmon programs that don't work and we all have limited time money andit does yes each ineffective program is gonna sap yourenergy can is at your money and your time your gonna get skeptical
