Vertical jumps are very important in a couple of games like high jump and basketball.
However, not everyone is born with a great physical jump but hey you can always practice and even double your jump in a few number of weeks.
It is important to understand that you do not need any special footwear or special instructor to jump high in the sky.
The following steps will do the trick in a few days.
First, you can take advantage of squats to increase your vertical jump.
Train your legs with squats and you will surely build the strength of your legs significantly.
Again, you will also improve your body balance when you are stand or running.
Squats are best practice on a bench while standing a couple of paces away with the top of your foot on the bench.
You can increase your body weight by holding dumbbells.
However, this should be after you have trained and improved.
Once you are on the edge of the bench, moving down till the back of you knee touches the floor and use your heel of the foot to raise back up into a standing position.
An average of five reps a day for each leg should give excellent results in a span of 10 days.
You should get rid of the knots in your leg muscles.
These knots are a hindrance in the lengthening of you muscle tissue.
Remember, longer muscle tissues of the leg allow you to jump higher.
You can eliminate the knots by using a form roller that you will not go through a painful process and the length of your leg muscles will increase amazingly.
Using the foam roller is not a hard thing.
Simply put it under your calf and let the other foot rest on the floor then roll from your to ankle to the know.
Repeat the exercise for 30 seconds and then switch the foot holding the roller.
Another way to remove the knots from your leg muscles is using the roller on the outer thighs and front of your thigh.
Just lie on one side of the body with the roller close to your waist and move so that the roller moves from that position to almost close to the knee.
For the front of the thigh lie on your stomach to achieve desirable results.
Death jumps are also a great way to increase vertical jump significantly.
Stepping off a high ground and moving high above and then down to a lower ground is just it.
This will activate your lower body muscles to extents that you have never felt.
The exercise has great results if you start by standing on the high ground or a trainer box that is 6 inches high and jumping while your back facing the lower ground.
Finally, standing on your toe will improve how you relax and stretch your leg muscle just before you take-off the ground.
Try standing on your toe for at least a minute for 10 reps a day.
All the aforementioned exercise yield unimaginable jumping power.
