Answering the Question - How Can I Jump Higher?

As someone who has a fairly decent vertical, I often get ask the
question by other athletes, how can I jump higher? In this article I
will go over some simple but helpful tips that anyone wanting to jump
higher can use to make that happen. To be honest answering the
question of how can I jump higher can get rather complicated depending
on who you are talking to, but I am going to break it down for you a
simple as possible.

Increasing your ability to jump higher can be done and be done in a
relatively short period of time, but there are some things that you
must take in to consideration.

1. It will take a lot of hard work and dedication. Not being
determined and consistent will indeed lead to a failure when trying to
add some inches to your vertical.

2. How you train. There are hundreds of different jump higher programs
out there that all have their own special way of training to increase
one's leaping ability. The truth is, many of these jump higher
programs are full of a whole bunch of unnecessary exercises that maybe
good for cardio but does nothing for your vertical, although there are
some really good programs out there that really give athletes exactly
the information needed to succeed in their training goals.

3. Nutrition is so important. Many people look surprised when they ask
me how can I jump higher?, and I tell them that what and how you eat
is just as important as the exercises that you do. When training to
jump higher you should be on a nice healthy diet that includes a good
amount of protein, fruits, vegetables, healthy carbs and a good

If you are really looking to put on some serious inches, I would
honestly recommend getting a good vertical jumping program. Look for
one that is simple to understand and that has real credibility. A good
program can make all the difference in the world.

simple little training that you can do to increase your vertical.
