Vertical Jump

The vertical jump (vertical leap) is a measure of how high an athlete can jump from a standing start.

It has become the standard of measurement for athletic potential in most sports e.g. basketball, american football, and volleyball.

Success in sports requires you to be fast and explosive, and the vertical jump is a great way to measure these athletic attributes.

I have studied the science and methodologies of vertical jump training for over 10 years.

During this time, I have discovered what works and what doesn’t, mostly from trial and error.

These articles will give you everything you need to know about how to improve your vertical jump.

They contain valuable nuggets and deep insights that you can immediately implement into your workouts to start jumping higher.

    glad you mentioned about the standing start. too many athletes measure their vertical from a running start — it’s a huge difference!

    hey dan

    approximately how high would i be able to get my vert by doing the body weight exercises in the jump manual.

    Straight to the point article with good articles. I’m with Kelly concerning the SVJ vs RVJ. Most people end up measuring their RVJ and comparing it to people’s SVJ.
