How can I increase my vertical jump for basketball?
Examples include front and lateral box jumps, jump rope, jump squats, and jumping lunges. If you’re jumping with a purpose, you are building your vertical. One of the quickest and easiest ways to make vertical progress is stretching.
How do you increase jump height?
You can improve your vertical by practicing single leg exercises like vertical hops, standing long jump and skipping on one leg. Also practice high knee jumps. Be sure to practice equal time on each leg. That will build the explosive strength you need.
What muscles help you jump higher?
Your quads and hamstrings are your primary thrusters. But if you want to jump higher, it’s equally important to awaken and strengthen assisting muscles—your calves, the muscles around your hips, and your glutes.
