Discovering How to Jump Higher

  1. 1. Discovering How to Jump Higher<br />Do you sometimes wonder how Michael Jordan did those half-court shots? Or how Kobe Bryant did those dunk shots? Do you sometimes wonder about what they do to get themselves off the ground with enough leg power to reach such remarkable heights? Have you ever thought that someday you&apos;ll be able to do it, but then you snap back and realize you don&apos;t even have a clue on how you&apos;ll do it? Well, there are a million sources for steps, tips, and techniques on how to help you improve your vertical jump. <br />
  2. 2. Here are a few techniques on &quot;How to Jump Higher&quot;<br />1. Work on your leg muscles with determination. <br />Leg muscles which include your hamstrings, calves, and quads are you major jumping muscles. They are all responsible in getting you off the ground. However, calves play the most important part when you jump because they provide the &apos;spring&apos; that you need for you to be able to jump as high as you can. Strengthening and toning these areas will not only improve your vertical or jumping abilities, it will also help you become quicker in plyometric exercises. <br />
  3. 3. 2. Strengthen your lower back and erector muscles. In jumping, you do not only use your leg muscles, you also strain your lower back and erector muscles. So before trying to jump higher, you should perform some lower back stretches and erector muscle exercises which include the following: <br />a. Prone Back Extension<br />Lie on your stomach, then push yourself up using the strength from your elbows as you slowly extend your back, continue to push yourself until you feel a gentle stretch, hold for 15 seconds and slowly return to the starting position. Do this for 10 more times. <br />b. Cat Stretch<br />Get down on the floor on your hands and knees, then arch your back towards the ceiling until you feel a gentle stretch, hold for 15 seconds and slowly return to the starting position. Do this for 10 more times. <br />
  4. 4. c. Pelvic TiltLie on a hard surface, bend your knees, and place your feet flat on the floor. Inhale and slowly exhale as you press your back against the floor, hold for 15 seconds, and slowly return to the starting position. Do this for 10 more times. <br />d. Back Extension<br />Lie on your stomach and place your hands on the floor, then contract your abs throughout the exercise, then slowly squeeze your back and lift your chest a few inches off the floor, then slowly lower yourself to the floor. Do this for 10-15 times. <br />
  5. 5. 3. Perform jumping exercises.<br />After you strengthen your leg muscles, lower back, and erector muscles, you now have to exercise your jumping abilities. But before any exercise, you should always warm up. This includes proper stretching, jogging, jumping rope, and running up and down the stairs. <br />These are only a few techniques that can help you improve your jumping skills. There are still a lot out there that you have to learn but of course, above all of it, hard work and determination always serve as the key.<br />
