Blake Griffin Dunk or Top 3 Exercises for a higher jump

You've seen Blake Griffin danced in Timofey Mozgov in November 2010? Most people agree that this is one of the best NBA dunks in recent years. And Blake Griffin is not tired of dunking – in fact he drives the championship in empathy (100 until January 26, 2011).

Being 6 ft 10 inches (2.08 m) high and a 37.5-inch vertical, dunking easy for Blake, but it's interesting that his jaw and wingspan are far below the average (force ahead). The reason for the almost unique combination of performance and explosion (LeBron James and Dwight Howard's two other examples) is a special training – sand training is obviously paid off in a 60 kg weight waistcoat.

you do not have to finish such an extreme workout to improve the vertical jump. There are great exercises that help vertical growth in a short time. So, without further chats, here are the 3 most important exercises to go higher:

1) Box Jumps This exercise requires a solid box. The idea is simple: jump to the box, step down and repeat the movement. Start the box height by 16 inches (40 cm) and increase the height if you have no problem jumping on it. Do 6 repetitions.

2) Depth Jump The goal here is to get out of the box and kick back in the air with maximum force as soon as it reaches the ground. Make 8 repetitions per set (up to 4) – only two days a week! Your muscles need to regenerate after an intense athletic ability.

3) Split-squat jumps This exercise improves the strength and explosiveness of the thigh. The starting position is the position (signing in on Google Images or YouTube). Now jump up and swing legs. Repeat the exercise 8 times on each leg (5 sets). By the way, split squats are part of the daily routine of Brandon Roy (40 "Vertical)

Do not forget to warm up and stretch before and after workout. Also, remember to increase the vertical jump, then you should work on the hop blast and the non-rising endurance, so jump as much as you can will cause more damage than good, all about doing the exercises correctly, the right amount of repetitions and the amount of rest (especially plyometrics) muscles require a lot of time to regenerate after intense athletic activity (at least 24 hours, 48 ​​hours better).

I suggest you stick to a vertical jumping program ( Jump Manual ) as specific training plans, video footage, kits and reps

PS You probably know that Blake Griffin will be in the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. But did you know that Blake won the Slam Dunk Contest in McDonald's All-American game in 2007 (one point against Austin Freeman)?
