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
5 Ways Flat Feet F Up Your Workouts EXERCISES TO FIX THEM
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. If you've got flat feet and you're workingout, then this is one tutorial that you can't miss. Today I'm going to show you 5 ways that flatfeet are flat out f***ing you up in your workouts. And I'm going to explain each one of themto you today. I'm going to have Raymond show you on his own body why that is. And most importantly, I'm going to show you2 ways that you can try to start fixing it yourself.
Alright, so we've got a big tutorial here, animportant tutorial. Raymond got dressed up for it. That just shows you how important thisreally is. Especially if you've got flat feet. As I said,there are 5 ways that it is really really effecting your workouts. And I'm going to start by showing you downat the ground exactly what's going on with our feet. And then you can start to understand why it'sso bad and what it's implications are for your workouts.
Alright. So, let's take a look at these feetand see what I'm talking about when I say flat feet. Again, you know if you have themwhat's going on. But for those that don't, this is what's important.You're supposed to have spacing here on the inside of your foot. You're supposed to have a natural arch, ok,some room in here to actually get, I don't know, even a pen or something on the ground that you can still stand over and not squooshit to the ground. Here, you can see that that would be impossible.
There's absolutely no space here for my hand.That is an absence of an arch. Now, there's a lot of things that can cause this, guys. There can be congenitalinherited things.There can be just general laxity. There could be dysfunctions of the muscles themselves. There's not really a real definitive causebut when you have them, you've got to do something about treating them. So, I'm going to get into the exact ways thatthis is going to cause a problem and then show you how to, most importantly, try tocombat this and fix this yourself.
Ok, first up, and a real big one here, especiallyif you guys are squatting at all, you're going to have a real hard time maintaining propersquat mechanics if you're squatting with uncorrected flatfeet. The reason being is, all you have to do islook at what happens on the ground. I talk about it all the time, guys. It's a chain reaction. Everything starts fromthe ground up. You can see that on this side here, that when the foot has an arch, it allows the ankle, knee, and hip to stayin alignment because that arch elevates the
foot just enough to keep that tibia righthere in line with the knee, right here in line with the hip, ok. So, everythingcan kind of move in line the way it's supposed to. This is a little bit exaggerated here, butyou can see down at the ground, when the arch is collapsed, what happens is, the heel kicks out to theside here, and it brings the tibia and it rotates it inward. As soon as you do this, you're obviously causinga torque right here at the knee because this
How To Bunny Hop Like A Pro
The bunnyhop is an amazing technique no matterwhat bike you ride. It's fun, it looks cool and it can keep you safe whilst out on theroad. It's possible to clear big obstacles withthis move but we're going to start with just getting airborne. You can make life easier for bunny hops rightaway by lowering your seat, giving yourself more room to manoeuvre on the bike. Ride with your pedals level decide whichfoot is most comfortable in the forward position. Find a safe flat riding area that is awayfrom traffic. Then take something soft like
a rolled up tshirt and place it on the ground.This will be your first â€˜super safe' bunnyhop obstacle. Roll towards the obstacle and as you get close,about 1 metre away, compress your arms down and then immediately lift up and back, raisingthe front wheel up, over the obstacle. Now repeat this tons of times just get comfortabledoing that one move. As before, roll towards the obstacle, butlet your front wheel just roll over it this time. As the rear wheel approaches, lift upand backwards with your feet in a scooping motion.Now link steps 1 and 2 together, so ride towards
the obstacle and compress down and up liftingyour front wheel over, as it lands scoop the back wheel up and over. Then guess what repeattons of time just repeat over and over again. So you've learnt your new skill, you're bunnyhopping and you're desperate to use it but before you go out and start bunny hoppingup curbs just spend 10 minutes really honing that skill and practicing it. It's really easy to bunny hop in clip pedalsbut it can lead to some bad habits. So try and make sure you lift the front wheel firstfollowed by the back wheel, 2 separate movements, not just 1 upwards lift.
