## 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

## Vertical Asymptotes How mathbff

Hi guys! I'm Nancy. and I'm going to show you how to find the vertical asymptotes of a rational function. If you don't know what I mean by rational function just ignore that, you're probably in the right place. Actually all this stuff is a lot easier than it sounds. So don't worry. It's gonna be fine. Let me show you.

OK, so say you need to find the vertical asymptote or vertical asymptotes, if there's more than one. First of all. what is a vertical asymptoteé It's basically an invisible vertical line that your graph approaches and gets really really close to but never actually touches. Never quite reaches. So how do you find the vertical asymptoteé Well, if you have a rational function, the fraction form type,

which is the most common kind for this, you can use the same 3 steps always to find the vertical asymptote. OK. So here are the 3 steps you can always use to find the vertical asymptotes of a rational function. The first is to factor the top and bottom. If you can and all that you can. I'll show you what I mean.

The second is to cancel any common factors from the top and bottom to simplify. And the last step is to take the bottom, the denominator and set it equal to zero to find the vertical asymptotes. So let's try it for this function. The first step is to factor the numerator and denominator. if you can. And all that you can.

So you can't factor the top. in any way, but the bottom you can factor. It's a quadratic. And if you want more help on how to factor quadratics I have a tutorial for that. So you can check that out. But basically the idea is you want to break this into. 2 separate factors that start with x.

So x plus a number times x plus another number. OK, and what you want are 2 numbers here. 2 numbers here that. multiply to 6 and add to 5. And those 2 numbers would be 2 and 3. Since 2 times 3 is 6 and 2 plus 3 is 5. So in here we have 2 and 3. And that's all that you can factor for this rational function.

### The math behind Michael Jordans legendary hang time Andy Peterson and Zack Patterson

Michael Jordan once said, quot;I don't know whether I'll fly or not. I know that when I'm in the air sometimes I feel like I don't everhave to come down.quot; But thanks to Isaac Newton, we know that what goes upmust eventually come down. In fact, the human limit on a flat surface for hang time, or the time from when your feet leavethe ground to when they touch down again,

is only about one second, and, yes, that even includes his airness, whose infamous dunk from the free throw line has been calculated at .92 seconds. And, of course, gravity is what's making itso hard to stay in the air longer. Earth's gravity pulls all nearby objectstowards the planet's surface, accelerating them at 9.8 meters per second squared. As soon as you jump,gravity is already pulling you back down.

Using what we know about gravity, we can derive a fairly simple equationthat models hang time. This equation states that the heightof a falling object above a surface is equal to the object's initial heightfrom the surface plus its initial velocity multiplied by how many secondsit's been in the air, plus half of the gravitational acceleration multiplied by the square of the numberof seconds spent in the air. Now we can use this equation to modelMJ's free throw dunk.

Say MJ starts, as one does,at zero meters off the ground, and jumps with an initial verticalvelocity of 4.51 meters per second. Let's see what happens if we modelthis equation on a coordinate grid. Since the formula is quadratic, the relationship between heightand time spent in the air has the shape of a parabola. So what does it tell us about MJ's dunké Well, the parabola's vertex shows ushis maximum height off the ground

at 1.038 meters, and the Xintercepts tell us when he took off and when he landed,with the difference being the hang time. It looks like Earth's gravitymakes it pretty hard for even MJ to get some solid hang time. But what if he were playing an away gamesomewhere else, somewhere faré Well, the gravitational accelerationon our nearest planetary neighbor, Venus, is 8.87 meters per second squared, pretty similar to Earth's.

If Michael jumped here with the sameforce as he did back on Earth, he would be able to get more than a meter off the ground, giving him a hang time of a little over one second. The competition on Jupiterwith its gravitational pull of 24.92 meters per second squaredwould be much less entertaining. Here, Michael wouldn't evenget a half meter off the ground, and would remain airbornea mere .41 seconds. But a game on the moonwould be quite spectacular.
