Re: The secret to gaining VERTICAL
Upper body weight? doesn't matter, upper body STRENGTH? matters a good amount.
One thing thats important and that is often overlooked in jumping high is a strong frame. If you have weaknesses in your body then you will not be jumping as high because the transfer of energy is being interfered with. Work out your core, back, shoulders, chest and you will see increases in vertical. Squats and deadlifts are great for increasing your vertical. Do 5 x 5 squats with max weight every other day and youll see increases in your vert in 2 weeks.
