Improving Basketball Skills Exercises to Increase Vertical Leap
Hi. I'm Travis Corpening. And here we areat beautiful Carolina Beach at the recreational center. And I'm about to teach you some exercisesto increase your vertical leap. The first one I wanted to show you is called a calfraise. And the way you do a calf raise is, you find an actual raised level or platform.You stand on the end of it and you want to put your toes right to the edge of the platform.Right to the edge of the platform and slowly raise, raise and raise. You do this probablyaround twenty times, twenty to twentyfive times or do it until it burns. And try this,I would say, twice a day. Twice a day until you start to increase your strength, yourcalf strength. Then, follow up by also trying
to actually jump. Practice what you're actuallystrengthening. Practice using the muscles that you're actually strengthening. And that,I guarantee you, will increase your vertical leap.
