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.
Dmitry Klokov CrossFit Tabata Part 1
My name is Dmitry Klokov.I'm from Russia and I'm a World Champion, European Champion,Silver Medalist of Olympic Games in 2008. My snatch PR in competition, official competition,international competition is 196 kilos. And in training in gym 206 kilos is my bestsnatch. I like Tabata Songs. I remember your firstTabata Songs. This was very good music and when I made my tutorial for my YouTube channelit was this Tabata Song, where a lot of people, Russian people, asked what is, what is themusicé What is the name of this musicé And this was interesting, yeah.
I love it. (Tabata music begins playing) Welcome to tabata. Here we go in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Go. Tabata. This is twenty seconds works and ten seconds break and again. Eight rounds. This is cardio for me (laughs). This looks like weightlifting exercise but this is cardio for me. I started weightlifting December 10, 1995. I was 13.
CrossFit changed the weightlifting world alot. A lot. Totally. Uh, because before this was not popular sport,this Olympic sport but not really popular because, uh, it is dangerous, it is difficult. And now when CrossFit is popular weightlifting is now popular too.Because CrossFit, this is weightlifting too. This is like maybe sixty percent of CrossFituh is weightlifting exercise. And of course people try. My body all ready for lift for one rep max. But doing something like more than one minute(laughs) is crazy. All of us think about like dreams. That's good.But demand maximum.
For example when I train I believe for the future I will be Olympic champion. But my maximum was silver. Demand the impossible maximum result. is what I mean. Same in your normal life.
