					Best Exercises to Jump Higher
Many athletes are always looking for exercises to jump higher. They want
to add valuable inches to their vertical jump in order to increase their
athletic performance. There are several great exercises to help you jump
higher and I will detail them in this article.
If you want to jump higher you need exercises that target the proper
muscles that are involved in jumping. Not all exercises are conducive to
increasing your vertical jump height. Some exercises will build muscle
strength but you need to focus on building fast twitch muscle in order to
jump higher.
Box jumps are a great vertical jump building exercise. To perform box
jumps you simply need a box that is around 1 -2 feet high. Start by
standing on one side of the box and proceed to jump over the box and land
on the opposite side. Then repeat and jump back to the side you started
Another exercise to help you jump higher is rim jumps. All you need to
perform this exercise is a basketball hoop. Stand in front of the
basketball hoop and jump up as high as you can and try to touch the rim.
Then as soon as your feet land back on the ground, jump up again trying
to touch the rim. Continue these repeated jumps for about 10 reps.
The last exercise I will go over is the speed rope. Many people discount
the benefits of the speed rope but they should not because it is the
perfect exercise to help increase your vertical jump. It forces you to
make quick and explosive jumps which are great for training to jump
higher. All it requires is a jump rope and can be done almost anywhere.
These 3 exercises to jump higher are a great starting point for anyone
looking to increase their vertical leap. Remember that you always want to
be training your fast twitch muscles because they are the ones that will
lead to increased jump height.
If you would like to learn how to jump higher then I suggest you get a
copy of the "Vertical Explosion Training Guide" as it is by far the best
vertical jump program available. It will show you exercises to jump
higher that will add 10 inches to your vertical in 10 weeks...Guaranteed!
