There are many reasons why a player might want to jump higher.

Some players expire to be the best that ever played and takes King James spot as the face of the NBA, or they may want to become one of the best dunkers who ever stepped foot on the hardwood.

How to improve your vertical jump

Everyone wanting to develop a higher vertical, there is a quick and fast way to do this, and that is by training, not just once but day after day. You must have a winner’s mentality to increase your vertical to the point it will make a difference.

To be honest with you this means joining a basketball-specific training program. Basketball Mentality reviews the best programs in the game and will not steer you wrong and help you decide which one is best for you.

There is more to training your vertical than doing a couple of jumps, ropes, and squats every day.

There is a proper technique when jumping, diet, the type of exercise, and what you will need to do on your days off to maximize your workouts.

Vertical training programs condenses these aspects into one short program, some as short as 8 weeks.

It will take more than the new shoes to increase your vertical; believe me, I tried to get the latest and coolest shoes, and it improved my vertical by a total of 0.5” inches.

The increase is because of the new grip that I got from the shoes.

Make no mistake; there is no shortcut to improving your vertical.

Even if you get the specialized training that is in these workout programs, it will take dedication and hard work. It will take sweat, and maybe it will take tears too.

Benefits Of An Increased Vertical Jump

Besides the obvious improved leaping ability, you will have a better offense and defense.

This improved offensive and defensive ability will come from your increased speed and coordination that comes as an extra benefit of proper vertical training.

The stat sheet will be filed no matter what sport you are playing, may that be basketball, football, soccer, or Volleyball.

Each of these sports favours the athlete who has a high vertical jump, and the higher the vertical jump, the more significant the benefit.

Where the benefits of an increased vertical really show is if your vertical is higher than your opponents.

You can dominate them in almost any aspect of the sport you are playing. I encourage you to increase your vertical by whatever method you chose, such as a training program or YouTube.
