Exercises To Jump Higher – How To Add To Vertical Jump?

You can spend a great deal of money on exercises to jump higher when in fact you don’t have to. Machines and equipment don’t necessarily cut it when it comes to finding the exercises that will develop the targeted muscle groups necessary for the continuous improvement you’re looking for.

If all you do is target the correct muscles that engage when you jump up you will find that you can invest about half an hour three days per week and you will watch your jump height increase significantly over time. Use these exercises to improve muscle memory and performance. If you use them for the life of your career you’ll find that you’ll always have a edge.

Make sure you take the time to warm up and stretch. It’s a little senseless to injure yourself doing exercises to jump higher. You’ll be sidelined and your improvement will be nil.

Anyone who has been in physical therapy for a leg injury knows how to do the first two exercises. The knee bend is a fail safe for all muscle development throughout the legs. Keep your back straight and lower your rear end toward the floor as you bend your knees. Try holding an air filled ball between your knees for extra difficulty. Hold your sitting position for about ten seconds and then control the rise back to a standing position. Don’t go too fast.

Toe raises are also among the best exercises to jump higher. Grab some ankle weights and slowly stand on your tip toes for at least ten seconds. At the end of your hold position, gently and slowly lower your heels to the floor. Rising and lowering should take at least the count of three to make sure you’re going slow enough to really work the muscle.

Finally, grab a jump rope and get busy, making sure that you jump with both feet together. This not only helps to increase your jumping height but it also helps to increase your jumping stamina.
