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

Vert Shock Diary Episode 3 First results after week 2

Hey guys and welcome back to my thirdentry in this tutorial log series about my eight week Vert Shock training program Thanks for tuning in and if you haven't watched the two previous tutorials stop this tutorial right now and watch those first so that you are really up to date! So week 2 of Vert Shock is behind me and the good news first: This time my body felt fresh enough to make a few tutorials showcasing my progress So a little patience and you will see it at the end of the tutorial But first I want to talk about week two a little bit:

So week 2 starts and ends with a day of rest in between there are five consecutive days of workouts. But that sounds worse than it is Because workouts are spread around in a way so that each part of the body has enough time to rest So the first twodays were all about jumping So a lot of plyometric exercises which I already knew from the first week then the first day The third day was all about static core strength And days four and five and involved sprints and other explosive strength exercises So a little sidebar about that core strength workout on day three

So I think I mentioned it in mylast blog post but I really hate planks I don't know somehow I have no tolerance for strength endurance exercise at all So when I first looked through Vert Shock I was really happy to see that there were no planks but turns out I was wrong they're stillthere, there just disguised under another name Theyre called body holds! But thirtysecond holds are actually not that bad So I think I can tolerate that if it means Ican dunk in the near future Overall I have to that I'm feeling a lotbetter than last week So I'm still a little sore but I'm definitely adjusting and it's getting better each day

Alright moving on to the interestingpart I've made a few tutorials showcasing my progress So check it out! Alright guys to freshen up your memoriesthat's what my vertical jump looked like before Vert Shock it was actually okbut I definitely missed something between three to five inches for a dunk And that's the way it looks right now And when I'm jumping without a basketball it looks really promising But this way jumping is a lot easier because you canreally use your hands to accelerate upwards

So right now I just don't havethe technique to also jump that high when I have to dribble a basketball but anyway it's really close already absolutely happy with the improvementsafter two weeks of Vert Shock And I think it's only a matter of time before I throw down my first dunk! This is it for this week But before I say goodbye I want to use theopportunity and promote my blog a little bit Its over on vertshocked and I share a lot more information about me About the Vert Shock program and also about the progress I've made so far

So I would be really happy if you check it out and maybe even leave a comment there I see you next week again with my next episode of this Vert Shock tutorial series until then bye bye!.
