Default Re: The secret to gaining VERTICAL

Look guys. A little COMMON sense. Weight training can help to a certain degree with your vertical, but your not going to increase your vertical to any significant degree by doing weights alone. You think people in the gym are all of a sudden telling their workout buddies that their jumping so much higher? It's just not the case. It doesn't matter if your the strongest person in the world. It doesnt matter how fast you are training. If you do deadlifts at a high enough intensity, you are gonna eventually snap your shit up, that is guaranteed. Plyometrics are the way to go when it comes to vertical. Plyometrics and keeping your body weight down. Then you do some form of weight lifting on the side to supplement your plyometrics. It doesn't matter if your doing jumpsoles or air alert, the bottom line is nothing happens without any plyometric training. Or you can listen to Jimmy Struthers below in this video. Jimmy Struthers be saying that you can gain a foot vertical in 2 weeks lifting weights. Watch below...
