The Ability To Jump 6 Inches Higher

Aug 7, 2008
Remember when you were a little kid and every time you bought a new pair a shoes you thought you could run twice as fast and jump twice as high? Now that you've grown up a little bit, you might have realized that getting a new pair of shoes won't increase your speed or vertical by very much. Even though getting a new pair of shoes might not increase your jumping ability, there are still other ways than you can, in fact, leap to newer heights.

Imagine if you were able to add six or even eight inches to your vertical, what would you be able to do? Perhaps you might be able to dunk, maybe you could even be an Olympic high jumper. Would you be the go-to go on your basketball team? Really, there are so many things you can do when you increase your vertical, even if it is just jumping to touch the ceiling at your school. Improving your vertical can set you free! What would you do with an higher jump?

Really, the best thing about being able to jump higher is not being able to do all of those things previously mentioned. The best thing about increasing your vertical is that you become a better athlete and can even be a better person. Your confidence level will increase and you will have much higher self-esteem. Whenever you work hard at something and see results, your confidence level goes up and you become a better person both physically and mentally, if the activity is a physical one such as jumping higher or weight lifting and other sport activities.

So how do you do it? It really requires a lot of hard work and dedication to do the routine and basic exercises that will increase the strength of your leg muscles and other muscles that will help you to get off the ground. Not only will this help you increase your jump, but it will also provide you with mental conditioning and give you that extra edge over your competition. By setting goals and working hard achieving them, you can become a whole new person both physically and mentally. It is important that you push yourself, but also that you don't try to run faster than you are able, or in this case that you don't try to jump higher than you are able to right now. You probably already know the extent of your own abilities and how far you can push yourself before you crack.

Every sport has two sides to it, the obvious physical side and the less obvious mental side. One thing that almost everyone who has ever played in sports has said is that they wished they had more confidence in themselves. Looking back you thought those around you were better than you, and perhaps some were, but really you just lacked the confidence to compete, not the physical ability.

In the end, you must remember that by increasing your vertical you will improve as an athlete not only because you can jump higher, but because your confidence level will be soaring. Take the time to improve physically and you will also improve your mental capacity as well.
