2 Exercises to Improve your Jump Height

*All exercises do not require special equipment and can be done almost anywhere*

 

 

Standing Broad Jump

To perform this exercise start with your feet shoulder width apart, squat down with arms extended behind the body.  In one explosive motion jump out as far as you can with your arms extended out in front of you.  Perform this exercise 3 sets to fatigue.

 

Squat Tuck Jump

To perform this exercise start with a basic air squat, feet should width apart, weight out of your toes, and back straight.  Once you pass a 90 degree bend in your knees jump up only using your legs and at the height of your jump snap your knees to your chest, land and repeat.  When pulling your knees to your chest allow your legs to slightly straddle.  Perform this exercise 3 sets to fatigue.

 

When performing these exercises to fatigue make sure you are pushing yourself and keep track of the number of reps you perform each set.  Try to increase the number of reps thought the week and you will notice a gain in jumping height and stamina.
