Vertical Jump

Vertical Jump

A vertical jump is a measure of an athlete’s explosiveness and lower body power. It is the act of jumping upward as high as possible from a stationary position, typically measured in inches or centimeters. The vertical jump test is a common measure of an athlete’s leg strength, power, and explosiveness and it’s used in many sports, particularly in basketball, volleyball, and track and field. It can be performed using various techniques such as a countermovement jump, squat jump, and standing long jump. Improving your vertical jump can be done through a combination of strength training exercises for your legs, hips, and core, plyometric exercises and jump training drills.
