Nate-and-Michelle-Miller-Transformation-1997.jpgThe Jump Manual in case you haven't heard is the "bible" of explosive training, much less considered the best step-by-step method of adding legitimate inches to your vertical. By jumping higher you can be assured that your overall foot speed with increase, your power that translates to contact sports will increase as well as your dynamic flexibility. And for those of you who simply want to look and feel better, add a little of this training to your program as many of the plyometric exercises are excellent ways to burn fat without hours of long boring cardio. So indeed jump to it! :)

The Jump Manual - Increase Fast Twitch Muscle Fibers
by Will Theydon

Fast twitch muscles fibers are actually the ones who present the speed for muscle contraction. They give the athlete speed, agility, power and quickness. They are actually 10 times faster than other muscle groups. One way to increase fast twitch muscle fibers is through isometric training. This exercise will most likely isolate and condition your fast twitch muscle fibers and increase your speed and quickness.

Isometrics is ideal to increase fast twitch muscle fibers, thereby helping to develop speed training. Usually, the fast twitch muscle fibers are the most neglected muscles since most athletes are actually focused on doing endurance training, thereby working the slow twitch muscles instead.

Plyometric exercises may also help increase fast twitch muscle fibers. Other exercises include drop and catch movements, squats, lifts, drop jumps, and other types of exercises that require supramaximal forces.

These types of exercises do not only help increase fast twitch muscle fibers but also increase bone density, power and strength. Plyometric exercises benefit children, teens and adults. It improves hip and lumbar spine bone mass in children and later reduces the negative effects of old age in the musculoskeletal system.

Doing the drills regularly helps prevent anterior cruciate ligament injuries, as long as there should be enough exercises preceding these drills to act as a warm up. Make sure that there is a gradual practice of the movements since if you act on it in a fast manner, you might suffer from the injuries.

These plyometric drills, which are the best exercises that increase fast twitch muscle fibers, can be done anywhere. You do not need to be in a gym to practice them. You may even opt to practice them at home. They basically include exercises such as jumping, skipping, and hopping, although they have different varieties to it. Repetitive sets are ideal and another option is to do it with weights.

How to Jump Higher in Volleyball

Diego-and-Nate-Senior-Night-2015.jpgJumping higher is a must for just about any field or court sport. The reason is that the higher you jump, the more explosive you are as an athlete. Explosiveness is a cousin to overall foot speed as speed is one of the defining factors in vertical leap. Read on and learn how to increase your vertical as it applies to Volleyball in this instance.

How to Jump Higher in Volleyball
by Josh Bidds

Volleyball and basketball happen to be the two sports that require the most jumping. The approach in volleyball is one where you can go full out and nobody will step in your way so you can expect to jump your highest.

One of the best weighted exercises for jumping are squats. Don't think you can just do tons of squats and that you will be blocking balls with your armpits. Squats alone will really only get your legs stronger but not faster.

Doing small sub maximal repetitive jumps will only train your muscles to do exactly that, jump continually at a minimal heights. For volleyball training you need to focus on low reps in each set of jumps. If you are a blocker you need to focus on jump exercises that don't have an approach. Using a chair, do jumps from a seated position exploding up to jump onto a box at least 2 feet high. Do only 8 reps on a high enough box that the eighth rep is hard to finish.

So how exactly should you train to get the most of out of a plyometrics program? This is the question that has been studied by coaches and athletes for years. Working out improperly in the gym would just result in you doing a lot of work and getting very little results from it.

You should learn how to train smarter not harder when it comes to jumping. It may come as a surprise but there are workout programs that will increase your vert 2 inches in only 2 weeks.

This could make the difference of making a point or getting blocked. Imagine training for two months and adding 10 inches to your vertical! These results are not impossible. Remember to always check with a doctor before undergoing any excessive training and never train when you are sore.

Squats are a very good exercise to build the strength of the legs. Before you move on to plyos you need to be able to do ten squats in 10 seconds with your weight on the bar.

If you can do this then you are ready to start training for speed. Bo
More Information:
x jumps are a very good way to start. Find a box about 2 feet high and do sets of eight reps as fast as you can. Rest completely between sets!
