Improve vertical jump and explosiveness on the court
What’s your vertical?
More importantly, what are you doing to improve it? The squat has one of the highest correlations to vertical jump. Adding body weight squats in a warm up can condition the legs and help correct technique before adding a bar on their back.
Load and explode
The ability to absorb force when landing is just as important as your ability to explode back up. Adding drills that enforce good landing mechanics can help increase the athlete’s vertical for improved performance in the paint.
