Show Notes

This episode is EVERYTHING related to the vertical jump and gives an easy to understand and simple to follow breakdown of what goes into an insane vertical jump and how you can improve your own!

Gerry starts the episode giving a breakdown of what two main factors contribute to the vertical jump, why the test is a great indicator of lower-half power/explosive output and how both force and velocity/elasticity come together to produce a vertical jump.

From there he gives the listener some simple form related cues for the jump itself that can yield immediate results, and then explains a simple test you can use to determine whether or not your vertical jump is produced mostly via force or elasticity/velocity.

To finish up, this episode gives you a guide on how you can train both components of the vertical jump and how you can effectively use your vertical testing results to make a more effective program!
