Jumping Training and Exercises

Monday, March 22, 2010

Jumping Training

Jumping is an essential part of many sports including basketball, football, tennis, soccer, and more.  Training or exercising to get better at jumping should be a part of your fitness routine.

To get better at jumping, you need to start with the basics which would be what we call an Explosive Squat. Jumping really begins with a squat ... using your lower body muscles to push you up and off the ground.   Getting lift in the face of gravity.

To practice jumping, begin by jumping in place from a squat, exploding from your lower body to push you up, then landing in a squat. When you land in a squat you prevent intense impact on the joints of your lower body, especially your knees. Once you get comfortable with this routine, begin jumping onto steps or platforms. Once you become comfortable jumping up, add jumping down (off a bench or steps) making sure you land in the squat position. Soon you will feel much more explosive strength in your legs allowing thereby enabling you to jump higher and more quickly, sprint faster, accelerate more quickly, and even perform better in sports.
