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
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.

- 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
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.
