Yet another basketball blog!


Holy crap, did you guys see the game the other day? Down by 15 with 6 minutes left and the Mavericks just started giving it to them, Dirk Nowitzki is definitely having one of his best seasons ever! And he had such a clutch play at the end of the game, Bosh got messed... Wade almost hit that buzzer beater though, thank god he didn't.

Alright anyways, I haven't really gotten to play ball much, and I slept through my game this morning -_-, so I'm just going to write down a list of things that you should do to increase your vertical.

There are a whole bunch of things that are factors, or rather "faucets" of increasing your vertical..

1st: Strength
2nd: Speed
3rd: Flexibility

For me, these three are the main things you need in order to increase your vertical. The basic things are the faster you are, the more propulsion you're going to get, or rather, the higher you'll jump. If you're stronger, your muscles will be able to push you higher, and last of all, if you're flexible your body is able to use more muscles to jump. Rest is very important in increasing your vertical, most people just go to the gym and work out their legs everyday, that's a very bad idea. You need to balance it out, such as working on strength, then maybe speed the next day with resistance training, and then take a days rest and repeat. I would suggest stretching 2-5 times per day extensively. People are also forgetting the approach. Your approach is a great deal as to how high you can jump. This video above explains it pretty well in my opinion. I'm going to keep this basic, but for exercises I would focus on your core (VERY important), doing squats, deadlifts, and depth jumps/calf raises. Those 4 exercises are four of my favourites, and I believe they've helped my vertical out.

Congratulations on your followers : )

Interesting points you made. I guess I'll 'try out' following these rules when playing basketball myself. Thanks a lot.

Dirk is a great player, though i still believe the Heat will take it this year.

It's interesting how muscles work together, and you slept through your game? Slacker!

This is very interesting, not only for basketball players. I do tricks myself and do box jumps to increase vertical. This is cool though, thx for the info :)
