Re: vertical jump

What's your vertical jump at now?

How tall are you?

How much can you squat and deadlift?

What are you doing right now for Vertical Jump training?

Re: vertical jump

Increase vertical jump by...you guessed it...jumping!
do jump squats (squat with 45# bar, explode upward), cleans, snatches, thrusters,
Basicly, anything that's explosive and involves the legs is going to lend something to your goal.
Try POSE running...I have a pair of vibram FiveFinger...they force you to run on your balls of your feet. You'll run faster and jump higher because of it...
