Higher Jumps Vertical Jump Training Resistance Bands
Speaker 1: Today we've got a bit of a jumpchallenge. I'm going to show you a little bit of a workout here. It's going to add alittle bit of an endurance portion of it as well as vertical leap. Grab you a nice boxthat's a little challenging for yourself, get your bands on and then lay out a benchor anything that you're going to jump over, it's going to be a barrier. So make it a littlebit challenging, but make sure that you can get over and back. Let me show you real quickand then we'll run through a set. So I got my box height here, make sure you got yourbands on. Let me just tell you when you're wearing the bands and you're working on yourvertical leap you want to make sure that you
control your knees. Don't let them controlyou. A lot of benefits, we've talked about this in hundreds of other tutorials I've postedfor you, but you got to make sure that when you're wearing the bands when you land workagainst the resistance and you're going to build your hips so quick, but if you let themcontrol you or you're not strong enough to do these types of things without the bandson, you probably want to start doing these types of exercises without the bands first.So let's jump into it here. Get your box height a little bit challenging. We're going to goless reps, but I'm going to show you both exercises. Get a good arm sweep on top ofthe box. Soft landings, you either hop back
or just step off, whatever you feel comfortablewith. The most important thing is you get up, get down, get up, get down. It's not afast pace, we're going for height. Nice soft landings. The second part of the exercisewould be speed, but under control. We're going to go over, all about getting your knees up.Let's jump into the workout. We're going to go 8 max jump heights and gofor a 15 second burst right after that for speed. Let's go and get started. 8 reps righthere. That's one, two, three. Make sure that you're landing neutral like that. Don't letyour feet come together, stay under control. I think I got two more. The last one. good. Now we got about 15 secondburst here for speed. Try to get up, get around,
get back over. Readyé Good. Make sure youget your knees up on those. If you start getting dizzy, I got a little bit dizzy there at theend, take your time, maybe don't spin around so fast. Catch your breath, that's a littlebit of endurance. Run through that, three or four sets and push yourself hard.

How did you develop your awesome verticalleapé Okee Doke. Alright.Well, when I was little, I would run and I would try to jump and touch anything I could.My mom would always say, quot;Boy!, You better keep your hands off my walls!quot; because I wouldhave hand prints all around the house. Alright. And it would be dirty hand prints on top ofthat so she'd be mad because her wall was dirty. But I would just run and if it wasa monkey bar, if it was a tree with a leaf hanging, anything that I like I would tryto touch I would run and try to do it. And after a while, it gets the muscles tight.Alright. The calf muscles get tight. The tendons
and ankles get tight. Everything in theregets a little bit tighter, so every time you go and jump you can fire off a little bitharder. But of course, as you get older, you're going to get stronger, you're going to developmuscles and stuff like that so it makes it better. But for the most part just keep tryingto do it. Alright. Practice makes perfect, like they say, righté. You're not going tolearn how to dunk unless you go up there and try it over and over and over again. Samedeal with jumping, same thing with shooting, you gotta keep trying. Alrighté That's mysecret, Don't give it to everybody! It's a good one.Can we see ité
That was awesome.And now I'm actually ready to put on a show, you know, now that everybody's gone.
