How I Grew My Vertical 4+ Inches Per Month
Your vertical jump is largely something you control. No matter what anyone tells you, you are largely the one who determines how high you want to jump…
…and your ability to jump higher involves a mix several elements: plyometric training, strength training, reactivity training, rest, and recovery speed.
While height might play a role in how fast you can train your vertical to dunk, height is not a dominating factor in the long term if you keep at it.
…that are equally as important as the other. One without the other will lead to either a quick and low jump or a powerful and low jump.
But both in tandem can lead to a deadly vertical jump that will leave your competitors in the dust…or on the ground should I say…
Both are critical to increasing your vertical to dunk.
Here are the 2 Training Methods To Increase Your Vertical Jump:
1.) Strength Training
Strength training trains the strength of your legs and adds power to your jump. This is the first piece of the puzzle to jump higher.
Here are 3 Key Muscle Group Exercises for Leg Strength:
All other exercises branch off of these 3 root exercises that train the 80% of the muscle you need to train to make gains on your vertical leap.
Pro Tip: It doesn’t matter how you structure your workout: to get the strength part of the vertical puzzle solved all you have to do is smash the 3 Key Muscle Groups with any exercise of your choosing…
Keep reps low, and exhaust your legs with squats, lunges, calf raises, and other exercises.
Always go 100% effort on every set and never do a single rep at anything less than 80% effort.
In a 3-4 day weekly workout rotation, you want to dedicate half of your weekly workout days to strength.
Over time you will build crazy strong legs and you will literally feel the extra power that you can output during a jump BUT…
…We aren’t done. You can be as strong as this guy…
…and still get nowhere when it comes to vertical jump increase.
One of the most important things you know is that the key to increasing your vertical is strength WITH agility…
Which brings me to the second part of the dunking puzzle…
2.) Plyometric Training
A wise man once said, “If you want to jump higher then just workout a lot”. Well…he was wrong because he forgot something very important…
…If you want to achieve a massive vertical jump then you have to train without weights and do something called “Plyometrics” as well as agility training.
Plyometrics are simply exercises where you jump explosively without weight or with very little weight as extra resistance.
Here are 3 Plyometric and Agility Exercises for Explosiveness:
- Ladder Drills [miscellaneous]
- Cone Drills [miscellaneous]
- Tennis Ball Drills
In a 3-4 day weekly workout rotation, you want to dedicate half of your weekly workout days to agility.
Are you starting to see how this system is shaping out?
Remember: A lot of Leg Power (Strength) + Quickly Generating That Power (Agility Drills + Plyometrics) = A Monstrous Vertical Jump
…You Could Experiment With Strength and Agility training and see what works over months of trial and error, but…
What If I Told You There Was Already A Vertical Jump and Dunk Training Program That Does This?…
The Jump Manual has a 100% Money-Back guarantee that you will add at least 10 Inches to your vertical leap in Just 12 Weeks.
In my case, I gained 11 inches on my vertical in 3 months with the Jump Manual and 4 inches in the next 2 months (adds up to 15 inches gained in 5 months).
Best of all, The Jump Manual works really fast and you only workout 3-4 days a week leaving plenty of time for rest.
If you finally want to take the leap and finally dunk link you’ve always wanted to, give it a shot.
I think you’ll be pretty satisfied with the results.
