FullBody Stretching Tips How to Jump Higher
Hi, my name is Sue Conrad, and we're goingto be going over how to jump higher. One item that you can use to help increase your heightis using a jump rope and you can use this as your warm up, or you can just use it asyour whole workout because there's many different things you can do with a jump rope. So youcan just do a basic twofooted jump, that's one option. Another option is to alternate.I actually start off with sets of twenty to twentyfive so maybe do three of them to warmup, and if you want more of an extensive workout you can do some advance jump rope options.Another exercise you can use to help increase your vertical jump is you can do some calfraises or toe raises. You can use those using
something to support you, or you can justdo them free standing. So you come up and do your calf raises, of course it would workbetter if you were on a higher surface but you can just do them standing if you don'thave one available. You're just going to come forward onto your toes and then bring it backdown, keeping your back in an upright position, back nice and straight. You can, of course,then we have our toe raises. You're just going to lift your toes forward, keeping your bodyupright without rocking back. Another exercise that you can do to help increase your verticaljump or vertical height is a deep knee bend or a deep knee squat. You just come down,as far down as you can go, and then come back
up. You can go a little bit lower on thesebut you still want to maintain your proper form, make sure your knees don't go forwardof your toes. And lastly, I have a more advanced option, which is either a jump squat, or adeep knee bend with a jump. So you can reach down, shoulders back, reach up. You can alsoadd some resistance to this by grabbing a medicine ball. Remember, this is an advancedoption, if you have knee or back issues this exercise is not for you. So you're going toreach back, sit it back into that chair, and propel upward. And these are some exercisesthat are going to help with your vertical jump.
