jumpsoles, they dont just increase your jump. They increase your speed too.

But if your not willing to pay the money, i guess just google "running exercises," and it should give you some good advice.

Also what i would do is, i would just keep running and running and running.

hope i help

wear ankle weights throughout the day.

I knew a kid who wore ankle and wrist weights everyday throughout highschool, he was a Bruce Lee fanatic and studied judo, jeet kune do, it all. Needless to say he was somebody not to be messed with he even dressed like in the judo garb and rosary beeds the whole get up. Quick as hell, and he could ball too.

Train your explosiveness by doing a lot of jump rope and any exercises that involve quick movements(ie- jump back and forth over a pilon, quick box jumps). For your speed, what worked for me was going in a pool and doing continuous sprints from one side of the pool to the other.

idk about running alot. if you do that your fast-twitch muscles turn slow-twitch which slows you down, IE. XC runners can't jump where as sprinters be flyin'.

please, take care in what you do with your body. If you're stille young/developing you could damage it seriously. This thread is quite full now with posts like yours, generally concerning vertical reach more than speed.
Yet, the answer is often the same. Check my posts in those threads, as I think I'd get boring always repeating the same things. If you find something unclear, please ask.

Just a few, quick advices:

if you are 17 or younger:
- Don't use ankle weights
- Don't execute exercise with overweight (i.e. squats, weightlifting, or similar)
- Don't execute exercise of pure plyometry. (plyometric is an exercise during which you force your muscles to an eccentric effort and then react with a concentric effort, i.e. letting yourself fall from a plynth and jumping on reaction)
