crucial training factors when increasing
Basketball players should work on increasing vertical leap strategies, whether they are playing, or
they are taking a little time off. There are many components that go into this type of training,
especially if it is to be effective. You can get your work out by simply going to the court and
playing the game everyday. But there is much more to this than is on the surface. We'll show you
how to make the best use of your training time to make gains in your vertical leaping ability.
If you know a little about track and field and running, then maybe you have heard of fast and slow
twitch muscles. People that do distance running have slow twitch muscle development. Sprinters
have fast twitch muscle development. So if you want to jump higher than ever, your legs and
calves must develop fast twitch muscles. As a general rule, you don't want to touch your back end
to your calves when squatting with lighter weights. That places tremendous strain on your knees
and is not recommended. Simply squat down about three quarters of the way, at the most, and
then spring up to a standing position. So to build your fast twitch muscles, make sure you are in
total control during each repetition. Tightness in your body is a recipe for poor athletic
performance and opens the doors to injury. When you decide to exercise and build your muscles,
your tendons and ligaments, especially in your legs, need to be stretched. When you decide to
improve your jumping muscles, there are specific stretches that must be done. Stretching out your
quadriceps, hamstrings, Achilles tendons, and, of course, your calves, is absolutely essential. You
should also do light and careful stretching of your knees with slow circular motions applied to
them. When you stretch your tendons and ligaments, you will see a dramatic improvement to your
jumping every time you exercise.
Since your calf muscles are critical to high leaping ability, you should increase the range of
movement in them. It is possible to achieve this by stretching your calf muscles regularly. It is
important that you stretch your entire body, yet what we need to focus on here are your Achilles
tendons and your calves. I do not recommend standing on something and bouncing as that can
produce an injury. So instead, lean against a wall with your feet flat and very slowly and steadily
lean into the wall. Never stretch too much where you feel uncomfortable. It is important that your
Achilles tendon and calves are never strained.
We've all seen players who don't seem to have any trouble achieving high vertical leaps. Yes,
those very few who have natural ability, but remember they really are few and far between. If you
lack this natural ability, try to forget that it exists and, instead, work on using each of the
techniques we've taught you for improvement. You can compensate for the lack of natural ability
by doing whatever you have to do to get better than you are now.
There's no doubt that all of these suggestions can help you to be a better basketball player, yet, in
case you really want to take your game to a higher level you must improve your vertical leap skill.
