Sure, genetics play a role.. but you can do a lot more than you think.


I think traditional squats and deadlifts tend to create two foot jumpers. When I was younger I could jump much higher off one but wasn't very explosive jumping off two. After not playing basketball for years and just lifting I could jump higher off two from a stand still than I could off one running.
