The Most Frequently Asked Questions About How To Increase Vertical Jump Fast

Aug 17, 2007
Mention the phrase vertical jump and many athletes worldwide pose many questions wanting to know the ultimate quick fix to increase and improve vertical jump. This article will discuss some of the most frequently asked questions about how to increase and improve vertical jump.

FAQ 1: Why is a vertical jump increase so important?

An increase to vertical jump is now considered so vital to athletes of all different sports, not just basketball, worldwide because it is now one of the main measurements that is used to measure an athlete's athletic capabilities. In fact the vertical jump is now considered so critical that it is the only measurement at the initial NBL assessment.

FAQ 2: Is it hard to see an increase in a short period of time?

No it's actually very easy. Of course there is persistence and a little hard work involved but once you know the right exercises to incorporate into your workout program, what part of the body to focus your reps on, and are following the right nutritional advice including what supplements you should be taking you can actually see an increase in a week or so.

FAQ 3: Do I need to do a workout every day to see a signficant increase?

Absolutely not. In fact, I recommend that you don't do a vertical jump workout every day for two very important reasons: One, your muscles need to rest. If you overdo your workout and do it every single day you are doing too much and are diminishing the chance of a jump increase. In fact, by doing it every day you could reduce your increase significantly.

Two, if you do a workout every day you run the risk of injury. If you get injured (as many professional athletes have been by overdoing things) then you can guarantee no jump increase while you and your body are in recovery.

FAQ 4: How Do I Measure Vertical Jump?

It's very easy to measure. Firstly, stand with your side against a wall and extend your arm high above your head and take a measurement, or have someone else do it for you either with chalk, sticky tape, or even saliva. That is your first measurement.

Then take a measurement with you doing a vertical jump as high as you can from a standing position, standing against the wall again. Take the second measurement away from the first and you have your jump measurement.

FAQ 5: How Do I Choose The Best Program For Me?

That's a great question. There are so many jump programs promising outstanding super quick results that it becomes really confusing trying to choose the best program for you. There are some very important factors that must be included in the best program for you: One, it can be customized to whatever level of fitness you are at and what age you are.

Every athlete is different and for this reason it's essential that the program can be catered perfectly to your needs. Two, the best program would focus on more than just exercises. Diet, nutrition and supplements are an important factor in your workout program and must be included. Further, the best program wouldn't just focus on stretching, plyometrics or weight training. The best program would include all of these exercise models.

Additionally, the best program must be able to be customized to improvements in your jump. If you do the same reps etc all the way along you won't see as significant jump increase than if you were altering your program as your fitness and vertical increase progressed.

FAQ 6: Where Can I Find A Jump Program?

There are a number of free programs available online. However, as with many things in life you do get what you pay for. It's important to look at programs that have a proven track record that are recommended by people whose opinions you value.
