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
I Jumped Off The Golden Gate Bridge
We havelost far too many lives traveling the path to this day. Since 1937, over 2,000 people have died at the Golden Gate Bridge. I feel lucky to be alive every single day. (ambient orchestral music) Of the thousands that have diedoff the Golden Gate Bridge, I am of the 1% who have survived.
So I was born on drugs and premature and then I bouncedaround from home to home. Nobody wanted to keepme because I was sick. And I got lucky. I landed in the home ofPatrick and Debra Hines. I had a great childhood. I thought growing up thateverything's gonna be great. And then at 17, it all came crashing down.
If you can imagine feelingthat everyone around you is out to get you, trying to hurt you, and trying to kill you. And you believe that to be the truth. From the extreme paranoia, Iexhibited symptoms of mania. From the mania came the hallucinations, both auditory and visual. And so with that and the bipolar disorder,
I just was spiraling out of control. I vividly rememberwriting my suicide note. People don't get it, likeI thought I was a burden to everyone who loved me,because that's what my brain told me, because that'show powerful your brain is. I got off the bus. I walked slowly down the walkwayof the Golden Gate Bridge. People rode by me, droveby me, walked by me.
And a woman approached me and she said, quot;Will you take my pictureéquot; She said quot;thanksquot; and she walked away. It was that moment I justsaid, quot;Nobody cares.quot; The reality was that everybody cared. I just couldn't see it. I ran forward and using my two hands I catapulted myself into freefall.
What I'm about to sayis the exact same thing that 19 Golden Gate Bridgejump survivors have also said. The millisecond my hands left the rail, it was an instant regret. And I remember thinking,quot;No one's gonna know quot;that I didn't wanna die.quot; In four seconds I fell 75miles an hour, 25 stories. And I hit the water.
