If you just want to jump higher, then you want habitual jump training. Try the Air Alert programs, they're used by NBA players, so must be worth a try

Air Alert




Air Alert is a big NO NO! Trust me, I play basketball and i've tried it. It will f*** up your knees. A better alternative would be Jump Attack, that worked really well for me. Plus Michael Jordan's personal trainer wrote the book, so it must be good

Olympic weightlifting, no question.

Oly lifting uses all the major muscle gropus of the body. Oly lifting trains the rate of force you can generate by working your fast twitch fibres. The amount of fast twitch fibres in the body driectly contributes to how well a person can do a vertical jump. Oly Lifting cultivates said fibers.

Read this article: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/henkin14.htm

I couldn't find Chad Ikei's original. But would recommend it too anyone if they can locate it. Would draw your attention to the following as well in the article:

Shane Hamman, 2000 Olympic Team Member and current National Super heavyweight Champion, another big man weighing in @ 163 kg (358 lbs) but only at a height of 5'9" tall, can jump onto boxes @ a height over 42" high. Of course Shane was also known for his squatting ability of over 1000 lbs. (Snatch 195 kg, Clean and Jerk 230 kg)."


He was also a 2004 Oly team member. So if you want to help your jumps, I would say to go Olympic!

Do a search for "plyometric exercises". This is what you're looking for. This specific type of exercise will help you to jump higher.

Have you heard of blocking? It is the method of transfering horizontal momentum into vertical momentum. It is mostly used in tumbling, but works for anything that needs to get your center of gravity super high. I know people who have poor vertical leaps but can get serious air with blocking. Check out the blocking tutorial at www.dogentricks.com. Ofcourse, this only works in a situation that allows for a running start. Hight for a standing vert would come from weight training and pratice.
