A high vertical jump is essential to becoming a successful athlete.

Once you reach that 35- 40 inch vertical you will be an amazing athlete. It

doesn't matter what sport you play, or athletic events you participate in, a

higher vertical jump will make you a better athlete.

So what are the 5 effective tips you can start using to increase your vertical

jump?

Let's start with the first one...




- Do squats consistently.

Train your legs to be effective and reliable by using them everyday. Doing

regular squats every day without any weights is a great way to increase your

vertical jump and the power in your legs. Your legs will get used to the

squatting motion that you use every time you jump, which will lead to a

higher vertical jump.

You should do at least 50 squats a day to keep your legs in great shape and

increase your vertical jump.
- Roll out the knots in your leg muscles.

If you participate in frequent athletic activity, the chances are you have tight

muscle areas or knots in your legs that need to be loosened up. These knots

can cause your muscles to shorten up which makes them weaker and less

effective. Once you loosen up these knots you will be able to jump higher.

You can use a foam roller to roll out the knots and lengthen your muscles.

You can use the foam roller to roll out knots in your calves, quads and IT

bands.




- Use depth jumps as an exercise to increase your vertical jump.

A depth jump is an exercise in which you stand on a box that is around 6-10

inches off the ground, step off, and as soon as your feet touch the ground

jump as high as you can while lifting your arms straight up in the air. Land

softly on the ground in an athletic stance and step back on the box and repeat

the process.

Do 3 sets of 3 depth jumps your first week and then improve the amount of

sets every week. So the first week would be 3 sets of 3, the second week
would be 3 sets of 4, and etc...




- Visualize a high vertical jump.

Believe in yourself and believe that you can jump really high. Every time you

jump make sure you jump as high as you can, because the more you practice

jumping high the better you will get at it. Eventually you will be able to jump

high without even trying because it will become a part of you.




- Swing your arms aggressively.

When you jump, you want to swing your arms upwards with tremendous

force. The swinging of your arms helps to build up momentum when you

take off from the ground, so you want to swing your arms with a lot of force.
