## 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 succeedÃ© 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

## Graphing Lines on the TI83 or TI84

WELCOME TO A VIDEO THAT WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO GRAPH LINES ON THE TI83 OR TI84 GRAPHING CALCULATOR USING THE GRAPHING FEATURE AS WELL AS THE TABLE FEATURE. SO LET'S SAY WE WANT TO GRAPH THE LINE Y = 2X + 3. SLOPE INTERCEPT FORM IS THE PERFECT FORM TO ENTER INTO THE GRAPHING CALCULATOR BECAUSE THE GRAPHING CALCULATOR DOES REQUIRE THE EQUATION TO BE SOLVED FOR Y.

SO IF WE HAVE OUR CALCULATOR, THE FIRST THING WE'LL DO IS PRESS Y EQUALS AS WE SEE HERE ON THE TOP LEFT. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER EQUATIONS IN Y1, Y2, AND SO ON, WE DO WANT TO CLEAR THOSE, AND WE CAN DO THAT BY JUST PRESSING CLEAR AND THEN ARROW DOWN, CLEAR, ARROW DOWN, AND CLEAR. NOW WE'LL GO BACK UP TO Y1 AND ENTER THE EQUATION.

NOTICE THAT THE Y EQUALS IS ALREADY THERE, SO WE JUST NEED TO TYPE IN 2X + 3. BE CAREFUL. WE CAN'T TYPE IN 2X. IT HAS TO BE 2X, SO WE'LL USE THE NEGATIVE SIGN BELOW THE 3, 2. THIS KEY HERE IS FOR THE VARIABLE X AND THEN + 3. NOW BEFORE WE PRESS GRAPH, LET'S MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE STANDARD WINDOW

WHICH MEANS BOTH AXES WILL GO FROM 10 TO 10. A QUICK EASY WAY TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE STANDARD VIEWING WINDOW IS TO PRESS ZOOM AND THEN OPTION 6 OR Z STANDARD. AND NOW YOU SHOULD SEE THE LINE GRAPHED ON THE SCREEN. IF WE DO PRESS THE WINDOW KEY, YOU'LL NOTICE BOTH THE X MINIMUM AND Y MINIMUM ARE 10, AND THE X MAX AND Y MAX ARE ALSO 10. NOW LET'S GO AHEAD AND PRESS GRAPH AGAIN,

AND THIS GIVES US A NICE VISUAL OF WHAT THE LINE SHOULD LOOK LIKE, BUT IT DOESN'T GIVE US EXACT POINTS TO PLOT ON OUR COORDINATE PLANE TO MAKE A NICE GRAPH OF THE LINE. IF WE PRESS TRACE THIS DOES GIVE US THE POINT (0, 3), BUT IF WE PRESS THE RIGHT OR LEFT ARROW, NOTICE THESE OTHER POINTS ON THE LINE

DON'T COME OUT TO NICE X AND Y VALUES. AND THIS IS WHERE THE TABLE FEATURE COMES IN VERY HANDY. THE TABLE FEATURE WOULD SHOW WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU MADE A TTABLE FOR THIS LINE. SO LET'S PRESS 2nd WINDOW TO SET UP THE TABLE FEATURE. WE'RE GOING TO START THE TABLE AT 0. THE CHAIN IN THE TABLE WILL BE BY 1s. THAT'S GOOD.

### Graphing horizontal and vertical lines

GRAPHING HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL LINES. OUR GOAL IS TO GRAPH LINES IN THE FORM OF Y = C AND X = A, WHERE C AND A ARE SOME CONSTANTS. IT'S PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD, SO LET'S JUMP INTO IT. WE WANT TO GRAPH Y = 2. WELL, THIS GRAPH WOULD CONSIST OF ALL THE ORDERED PAIRS WHOSE Y COORDINATE IS 2. LET'S JUST SAY FOR EXAMPLE,

WE WEREN'T SURE HOW TO GRAPH THIS AND WE WANTED TO KIND OF DO SOME VERIFICATION OF OUR OWN. WE ALWAYS GO BACK TO THE STANDARD TTABLE. NOW, IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS EQUATION, Y = 2. THERE'S NO QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT, Y HAS TO BE 2. HOWEVER, THERE ARE NO CONDITIONS BASED UPON THE VARIABLE X, SO, THEREFORE, X COULD BE ANYTHING. I'LL JUST GO AHEAD AND MAKE IT (0,1,2).

IF I WAS TO PLOT THESE THREE POINTS, YOU COULD QUICKLY SEE THAT IS GOING TO BE A HORIZONTAL LINE. AND, IN FACT, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT IS. HORIZONTAL LINE THROUGH Y = 2. NOW, THIS IS A FUNCTION. REMEMBER THE FUNCTION TEST IS DOES PASS THE VERTICAL LINE TEST. AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO DRAW A VERTICAL LINE ACROSS THIS GRAPH IN MORE THAN ONE POINT,

SO, YES, IT IS A FUNCTION. AND, IN FACT, EVERY HORIZONTAL LINE WILL BE A FUNCTION. THE OTHER CASE, WHAT IF WE HAVE A LINE IN THE FORM OF X = 3. WELL, THIS GRAPH CONSIST OF ALL THE ORDERED PAIRS WHO'S X COORDINATE IS 3. AGAIN, IF I REALLY WANTEDTO MAKE A TTABLE FOR THIS, I COULD. THE CONDITION FOR THIS TTABLE IS THE X HAS TO BE EQUAL TO 3.

AGAIN, THERE ARE NO CONDITIONS FOR THE Y COORDINATE GIVEN IN THE EQUATION, Y CAN BE ANY VALUE. I'LL MAKE IT STRAIGHT FORWARD AND EASY TO GRAPH. GRAPH THESE THREE POINTS, THEN WE SHOULD HAVE OUR LINE, (3,0), (3,1), (3,2). OKAY, OUR VERTICAL LINE LOOKS JUST LIKE THAT. AND THE QUESTION IS, IS THIS A FUNCTION, AND, IN FACT, IT'S NOT A FUNCTION

BECAUSE THERE'S ONLY ONE VERTICAL LINE THAT WOULD INTERSECT THIS GRAPH, AND THAT WOULD BE ITSELF. AND IT WOULD OBVIOUSLY BE CROSSING THE LINE IN MORE THAN ONE POINT, SO IT'S NOT FUNCTION. NO VERTICAL LINE WILL BE A FUNCTION. THAT'S PRETTY MUCH IT FOR HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL LINES. LET'S SEE HOW WE GRAPH THESE ON THE GRAPHING CALCULATOR.
