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.
Improving Basketball Skills Exercises to Increase Vertical Leap
Hi. I'm Travis Corpening. And here we areat beautiful Carolina Beach at the recreational center. And I'm about to teach you some exercisesto increase your vertical leap. The first one I wanted to show you is called a calfraise. And the way you do a calf raise is, you find an actual raised level or platform.You stand on the end of it and you want to put your toes right to the edge of the platform.Right to the edge of the platform and slowly raise, raise and raise. You do this probablyaround twenty times, twenty to twentyfive times or do it until it burns. And try this,I would say, twice a day. Twice a day until you start to increase your strength, yourcalf strength. Then, follow up by also trying
to actually jump. Practice what you're actuallystrengthening. Practice using the muscles that you're actually strengthening. And that,I guarantee you, will increase your vertical leap.
Advanced Basketball Techniques The Turn Around Jump Shot in Basketball
One other shot that Michael Jordon used touse and Kema Laguan used to use really effectively is called the turnaround jump shot. Actuallywhen these guys use it they are pros so remember turnaround jump shot, when they do it is aturnaround fade away jump shot. So this is something you might want to practice as wellbut the turnaround jump shot basically for our purposes we are going to start here inthe corner. If you are standing right here and you have got the ball, fed the ball, fedthe ball and you've got the defensive men behind you, right. What you want to do isyou want to fake, remember we talked about having the pivot foot, the pivot foot is importantbecause you can only use it like this and
once you establish it you can't move it, sothis is your pivot foot. You are using the pivot foot, you back into the man, don't hithim because you don't want to foul, back into the man, spin back out and take the jump shot.There you go, but just like I said before, Colby Bryant, Michael Jordon, Kema Laguan,when they do this move it looks a little more like this, a fade away and then they get theshot. So however you want to do it, whatever is more effective, the fade away is probablymore effective because if you have a man in the paint that is actually a little tallerthan you might want to sell that and fade away because it makes it harder for him toblock and actually I used to use this move
a lot this used to be one of my favoritesbecause no one could block it. So there you have it, the turnaround jump shot.
