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.
Best Shoes for Crossfit InsanityT25 Top Workout Shoes for Insanity P90X3 and T25
Hey Fitness Fans, Steve Twomey here with RealFitness Reviews. I want to talk to you today about my favorite shoes to wear for Insanity,Crossfit, anytype of High Intensity Interval Training, HIIT. Like T25, P90X3, all thosetypes of movements. Especially for crossfit, one of the things I want to talk about ishaving a shoe that is more like a minimalist style shoe. So if you go into any Crossfit, gym or Box,you will see alot of deadlifts, squats, clean and jerks, all those olympic style liftingmovements. What you want to do with those types of shoes is you want to find somethingthat will allow you to feel connected to the
ground. You will see alot of people wearingNew Balance Minimus style shoes, Vibram Five Finger shoes. Vivobarefoot, alot of shoesthat are the minimalist style, without a lot of heel to toe drop or a wedge. I want to talk about one of the shoes thatI wear for running. My running shoe from Nike is a Lunar Glide. I absolutely love it, greatrunning shoe. You will notice that the angle at which it drops from the heel to the toe,that allows your knee and kind of forces your whole body into like a forward starting position,which is great for running and speed. However, with plyometric style workouts, especiallybox jumps or plyo jumps, you are really exploding
off and then landing with a fair amount offorce on your knees. That can put undue stress on your shins which can cause shin splints,and also long term wear and tear on your knees. Shaun T has a great blog which I will attachhere in this tutorial talking about how running shoes are not the style of shoes you wantto wear for T25, Insanity style workouts. The shoe that I picked up is the New Balance1157 CrossTrainer. It looks like it has a fairly high heel to toe drop ratio, the footbedis actually just really deep. It is a great shoe one thing I really like about it, itis structurally and laterally strong. You can't twist it a whole lot. That is one thingto check out, you want to make sure, that
when you are doing Insanity workouts, youare doing alot of suicide drills, where you are making lateral style movements on a regularbasis. This will allow you to make good quick cuts, when you have a shoe that has lateralsupport. This is about a year and a half old so it is broken in more, but my Nike shoereally twists. Quite easily, find a shoe that allows you good structual support especiallyfor your ankes and what not. Another shoe that I wear when I am doing crossfitstyle workouts, is the Komodo Sport from Vibram Five Fingers. They are the originator of theFive Finger shoe design. If you do not want to go with something as odd looking as theFive Fingers, with the individual spots for
your toes; it looks kind of silly. I personallylike them, but my wife wanted me to pick up a shoe that would not make her embarassedto be seen with me, a VivoBarefoot shoe. They have a number of great shoes and justcheck them out. They give you that minimalist style feel without the funny looks. Hope this helps. I have a great review indepth of what kind of shoes that I wear and what kind of shoes my wife wears, when weare doing those types of workouts. Check it out at beachbooty Thanks so much for Watching!
