Could This Be The Best Vertical Jump Exercise?

Oct 17, 2007
Athletes often wonder what is the most important exercise to increase vertical jump. In this article I'm going to discuss one vertical jump exercise that is considered by some to be the single most important exercise for increasing your leap.

These exercises come in many forms ie. plyometrics and/or weight training. One effective jump exercise involves plyometrics and an exercise known more commonly as a "depth jump".

Why this exercise results in a significant increase is because of what the exercise is targeting. The depth jump has the capacity to overload the "falling" portion of your jump, more so than any other program.

This workout requires you to increase your ability to stop, your ability to power jump (explode) back up and the overall ability to increase your power output by harnessing the elastic energy of your muscles and tendons. You may be familiar with this exercise and are already using it in your jump workout.

However, if you have never heard of the depth jump and are eager to start implementing it into your program it is a relatively simple but very effective exercise.

It simply involves stepping onto a box of a particular height drop off and immediately when you make contact with the ground you do a vertical back up as quickly and as high as possible.

This simple exercise is one of many jump exercises to incorporate into your training workout.

If you are serious about increasing your leap you need to find the right program that will meet your needs.

The best program for you will be able to be customized to your own individual and athletic needs and circumstances. Programs customize their workouts differently. One may concentrate on an individual's weaknesses, while another program will customize its program through performing repetitious exercise.

The best program will be able to customize your workout precisely according to your needs and not someone else's. It will also be able to individually take into account your weight, your height, your health, your fitness level and ultimately, your jump goal.

It will also offer multiple different training levels. The best program will increase your jump strength through both weight training and plyometrics.

I've briefly discussed what the best program should contain. Let me know touch on what it should never contain:
1. Outdated information from someone who has no experience in the industry
2. The same exercises that you used when you were 10 (years out of date)
3. Exhaustive sets and reps of the same vertical jump exercises over and over again.
4. Overtraining. Do not do a vertical jump workout every day.
5. Squat overtraining.
