Over the weekend, I read this interview over on 46 jumpers where the author interviewed Jacob Hiller, one of the top vertical jumper trainers in the world.
I thought the interview was great and the author provided plenty of insights as to how to increase my own vertical jump. Here are the top 10 takeaways I learned from the interview:
1) Don’t train for high reps when doing your vertical, it doesn’t lead to good results.
2) Train your squats at specific angles (I never heard of this before).
3) Eat for your sport. Don’t try to lose weight, you need the extra calories to help you jump higher.
4) Get enough sleep.
5) Don’t neglect your upper body as it will help you push more power in the jump.
6) Use plyometrics smartly.
7) Trust your gut when jumping…you can jump higher than you think.
8) Don’t train with someone who hasn’t trained in vertical training
9) Building leg muscles does help you jump higher
10) Be safe!
I been struggling for a while now to lose weight, and I recently found an article with ten workout tips that helped me figure out a lot of the things that I have been struggling with. I am really glad that I came across this article, because the information contained in it was gold.
The ten tips that the nutritional and exercise article contained mainly had to do with eating healthy and maintaining a consistent workout regimen. In fact one of my main goals was to build a body like Jason Statham (40 years old and I love his body). TO do this I would need to ramp up my chest and shoulder workout These things, of course, are no secret – any trained health professional will tell you that eating healthy and exercising consistently are the key to losing weight. If you really want to lose weight, then you should focus on diet. Don’t worry about muscles since you can absolutely build muscle mass without any weights.
However, I found that when I began to lose motivation to stick with my workout routine, revisiting these ten tips helped me to pump up my motivation again and keep going with my workout regimen.
Now I am a lot more knowledgeable about eating healthy and working out than I used to be, I think I might write a personal “ten tips” of my own and post them on my blog and social networking sites so that other people can get the benefit of my knowledge, as well.
