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.
FullBody Stretching Tips How to Jump Higher
Hi, my name is Sue Conrad, and we're goingto be going over how to jump higher. One item that you can use to help increase your heightis using a jump rope and you can use this as your warm up, or you can just use it asyour whole workout because there's many different things you can do with a jump rope. So youcan just do a basic twofooted jump, that's one option. Another option is to alternate.I actually start off with sets of twenty to twentyfive so maybe do three of them to warmup, and if you want more of an extensive workout you can do some advance jump rope options.Another exercise you can use to help increase your vertical jump is you can do some calfraises or toe raises. You can use those using
something to support you, or you can justdo them free standing. So you come up and do your calf raises, of course it would workbetter if you were on a higher surface but you can just do them standing if you don'thave one available. You're just going to come forward onto your toes and then bring it backdown, keeping your back in an upright position, back nice and straight. You can, of course,then we have our toe raises. You're just going to lift your toes forward, keeping your bodyupright without rocking back. Another exercise that you can do to help increase your verticaljump or vertical height is a deep knee bend or a deep knee squat. You just come down,as far down as you can go, and then come back
up. You can go a little bit lower on thesebut you still want to maintain your proper form, make sure your knees don't go forwardof your toes. And lastly, I have a more advanced option, which is either a jump squat, or adeep knee bend with a jump. So you can reach down, shoulders back, reach up. You can alsoadd some resistance to this by grabbing a medicine ball. Remember, this is an advancedoption, if you have knee or back issues this exercise is not for you. So you're going toreach back, sit it back into that chair, and propel upward. And these are some exercisesthat are going to help with your vertical jump.
