How to Increase Vertical Jump to Spike a Volleyball Jump Higher to Improve Volleyball Spike Fast
OK guys, I want to talk about why people failto increase their vertical jump. I want to lay down exactly how you can start increasingyour vertical jump in the next 2 weeks or faster. The first thing is, why do peoplenot succeedé First is a lack of knowledge of the correct principals. Second is a lackof knowledge of the correct practices and jump techniques. So basically that is thedifference between what you do versus how you do it. And there is a big difference thatI'm going to go into a little later. Third of all is a lack of discipline or abilityto apply proper jumping techniques consistently over a period of time. And the last one issimply lack of proper nutrition. The first
thing you got to understand is that strengthplus quickness equals explosion (strength + quickness = explosion). When strength andquickness are applied during the same muscle contraction, explosion is the result. Youhave to maximize your muscle strength and you have to maximize your muscle quicknessand neurological response to create that explosion. Now: endurance versus explosion. Trainingyour jump explosion is counterintuitive. You go out there and you jump for an hour,working very hard. You are sweating, training hard, you feel the burn and you think youare training correctly. Most of you are not. You have to train in what is called the improvementzone. If your maximum vertical jump is 32
inches, and most of your training is donejumping at a 12 inch intensity, you are training yourself to jump 12 inches over a long periodof time. You are training your jumping endurance. This is all about the quality over the quantity.Let me give you another example. If you were a sprinter training for the 100 meter dashand your coach says you have to run 2 miles everyday and it is going to train you forthat 100 meter dash. After that workout you are going to be tired, you are going to besweaty and you are going to be training your jump endurance. No sprinter is going to trainby running the mile or 2 mile to run the 100 meter dash. You will be training the wrongtype of muscle fiber. So as long as you keep
training your endurance, you are not goingto be training the right type of fast twitch muscle fiber. There are 9 variables to yourvertical jump training. Each is going to contribute to upward explosion andor momentum. An effectiveprogram that wants to get results very quickly is going to target each facet. So trainingmultiple facets is going to create greater and faster results. For instance: flexibility.Training your flexibility correctly is going to give you more leverage on jumping power.Your form, fuel, your stability, you balance. Learning how to tweak how you jump is goingto help you tweak every aspect of your vertical explosion. Nutrition is huge. It is huge!Nutrition is a discipline. It is hard to get
right but once you get it correct you aregoing to maximize your workout. Your muscles are going to get broken down each workoutand if they don't have the proper nutrition to build them back up and strengthen themand prevent injury and have correct maximum muscle gains, guys, you are missing out ona whole lot. Now, I am going to tell you this over and over again (a lot of people are),but most of you are not going to capitalize on it. You are going to need a mentor. Youare going to have questions. You are going to have legitimate exceptions to this trainingprogram; to any training program because there is no one size fits all. There is no cookiecutter program out there. I provide 100% support
via email. You are also going to have accessto a forum where other people are already getting the results that you want. You cantalk to them about their training and what has worked for them. Guys, I am inviting youto take it to the next step. If this makes sense to you; if you understand how theseprincipals are going to help you jump higher and how training every facet and trainingin the correct mode and the correct types of exercises, get the jump manual. I do recommenda weight room but I provide an alternatives if that is not available. I am going to providecomplete support. If you have younger kids or you are older yourself, I guarantee youI have trained someone in you situation. I
Best Mountain Bike Pedals
Let's talk best mountain bike pedals today I'll start by reminding people that it's totallya personal thing, and a lot of times it will depend on what you've been riding already. It also depends heavily on what kind of ridingyou do and how comfortable you are on your bike. The first pedal question you have to answeris do you want clipless or flat pedals. Clipless pedals, mean you clip into the pedal to secureyour foot using a special shoe. Riding clipless takes some getting used tofor beginners but it offers you a new level
of control over your bike and increased efficiencyon climbs and on flat sections. With that said, it's not a requirement toclip in. Downhiller Sam Hill won the world championship on flat pedals, so you don'thave to use them. For high quality pedals there are two maincompanies to look at. Shimano and Crankbrothers. Each company does theirs a little differentlyand they each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Crankbrothers for instance offers a greatmultidirectional clip in surface and they shed mud better than anything else. For cyclocrossor muddy rides, these pedals can't be beat.
But, the drawback is they aren't really adjustableother than a few shims and basic positioning. Shimano on the other hand offers a very adjustablepedal with a great range of motion that is very easy for beginners to get used to. Butin muddy conditions they sometimes get mud caked inside the clips making it hard to clipin and out. So depending on what kind of riding you do,you may want a certain kind of peddle. For BMX, dirt jumping, and free ride mountainbiking or for anyone who doesn't feel comfortable yet on their bike, you may want to use a flatpeddle like the Shimano PDMX30 or the Crankbrothers 5050. These pedals have no clip in systemand can be used by any kind of shoe.
For All Mountain and downhill riders as wellas people who want a larger platform, Crankbrothers offers the Mallet and Shimano has the PDM985.These pedals are a combination between a flat pedal and a clipless pedal. They have a largeplatform with a clipless system built into it. Finally, for cross country riders or XC riders,those concerned with weight savings and quick clipins Shimano has the SPDM980 and Crankbrothershas both the Eggbeater and also the Candy pedals. These cross country pedals are madeas lightweight as possible, and are ideal for
So which one is besté Personally, I prefer the Crankbrothers eggbeaterspedals. The multidirectional spinning clips make it extremely easy to clip in and outof your pedals at any angle saving time and increasing pedaling efficiency in a race. But, a lot of other people will prefer theShimano SPD's because of their adjustability, wider platform and low cost. If weight is your concern, then Crankbrothersoffers the lightest pedals by far with their eggbeater 11 made out of titanium and thesethings weigh a full 136 grams less than the
top of the line Shimano SPD's. However, eventhe low end eggbeaters are lighter than the SPD's by 30 grams and they only cost $60. Finally, if cost is your focus then you can'tgo wrong with Shimano SPD's. These things are everywhere and you can often times findthem online for $30$40. I hope this helps you find the best mountainbike pedals to put on your ride. If you liked this tutorial, check out our others and alsosubscribe to the channel.

Will a BMX work on mountain bike trails Sorta
We'll get back to this in a few minutes. Today we're at Virginia Key park to answera questionâ€”one we kind of already know the answer to; Can you ride a BMX bike on mountainbike trailsé I mean, you probably could. They're great for jumping over stuff andnearly indestructible. But then again, you could probably go hikingin tap dancing shoes. BMX bikes come in many shapes and sizes, butat your local skatepark you'd find something like this.
The tires are high pressure, the seat is superlow, and the brakes are.well there are none. We're also missing the pegs but I don'tthink that's a factor here. For our test course I chose a loop at VirginiaKey Park called Purple Haze. All of the trails here are named after rocksongs, and just like the song, Purple Haze takes only about 3 minutes. You'll see why that's important. I also like this loop because it has a littlebit of everything, from loose sand, to roots, to chunky rocks and wooden obstacles.
There are also some well packed berms whichI'm sure the BMX will work great on. There are no prolonged climbs or descents,nor would I want there to be. BMX gearing is made for short sprints, toset up for gaps and jumps. As you can see, my mountain bike makes quickwork of all these features. Pedaling through the sand and dirt is effortlesson big cushy tires. On bigger bumps and drops, the suspensionhelps keep the bike grounded. Even if I get going too fast, hydraulic discbrakes are at my fingertips. The experience on a mountain bike is fun,comfortable, and fast.
But we didn't come here to use the righttool for the job, this is Seth's Bike Hacks you're watching. Time to take the 20 inch for a spin, ballsout no brakes. Right off the bat, I could feel the bike bouncingand shifting around on the pebbles and sand, but on the berms and wooden features it wasa blast. The BMX was so snappy and nimble that it outperformedthe mountain bike that was following me. That ended really fast when I hit this littlesection of mushy dirty. Sand, gravel, and rough terrain is cripplingon a BMX.
On inclines, I was able to pedal hard anduse my momentum, but there's no way I could have done any real climbing on this bike. I was very surprised at how well the BMX handledthe rock garden, but then again it was down a small hill. If it were level or uphill I wouldn't havehad the gearing or clearance for pedaling. For the roughest of features, momentum isthe only way to get through on a BMX. As I worked my way through the trail, I becametotally exhausted. In places where a mountain bike would justcoast through, I was pedaling with all my
might. On a BMX you're always out of the saddlemashing as hard as you can. Bombing this little twisty section was scary. I just barely made it around this turn withouttumbling into the bushes. After one more chattery section I was nearingthe end of the loop. The BMX had made it through the course. But believe me when I say you can't do thisfor very long. After catching my breath, I thought it wouldbe a good idea to take another lap.
