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. ReadyƩ 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.

Advanced Equestrian Jumping Exercises Horse Jumping Cool Down

As always, it's important that we cool ourhorse down after a long, hard jumping workout. You want to make sure that they've caughttheir breath, and return to a normal temperature. It's also a good idea after a hard jumpingworkout, to rub their legs down with either liniment, or rubbing alcohol and it's alsoan option to wrap their legs with standing wraps. This provides a little extra support and on these chilly days, it's also importantthat we have a cooler to put over your horse when they get a little hot. It keeps themfrom getting chilled in the cold weather.

Knee Extension Improvement Knee Straightening Ask Jo

Hey everybody, it's Jo. I've had alot of emails questions asking me how to straighten out the knee. Get more knee extension. Sotoday I'm going to show you some knee extension stretches. So one of the easiest things todo to get more knee extension is sit in a chair and find something sturdy to prop yourknee up on. If you have a lot of bend in your knee and you can't straighten it out, youmight need a little bit of help. This might be fine for some people and it might be hardfor them to tolerate it, but you might need that extra push. You can use a sack of potatoes.That is a lot of weight on there, but a lot of times that is what people do, is just putit on there. Slightly above the knee. You

don't want to put it right on the knee joint,but you want to put it slightly above the knee. If you don't have a sack of potatoes,like I don't, you can get a grocery bag of soup. So the more soup you put in there, theheavier it is. You can just take the leg put it through the holes, and put it just slightlyabove that knee. If you can tolerate five minutes of that, great! Ten minutes, evenbetter. It just depends on how much of the extension you still need. If this isn't quiteenough, you really need a lot, you need to push it hard, you can actually lie down onyour stomach. So I'm going to show you that now. Oh, were back! Okay, so this can be doneon your bed. I just want to show you so you

can see my leg hanging off. Because the importantpiece of this, is see how my knee is past the edge. You don't want your knee up here,even if your hanging off the bed, you want your knee slightly off the edge so you don'tget a whole lot of pressure on that knee because most likely your knee is hurting because youdon't have that full extension. So again, just hanging here like this might be all somepeople are able to tolerate. You can take a towel roll and place it under your thighas well, but if you're on a bed or couch, you should do okay. If this is not gettingenough stretch for you just hanging, again you can grab a bag with some soup cans init. I got it! You will probably have to have

somebody put it on there for you. Or startwith it on, and then lay down. Just try and relax that leg as much as you can, and justlet it hang and stretch out. Those were your knee extension stretches.
