Jump training is one of the best and easiest ways to develop explosive power.
Jumps also hype the nervous system and a great 'Kick Start" prior to engaging in HEAVY lifting, as you're about to see below 🙂
If you want someone to be explosive, make no mistake about it, being weak and performing jump training won't help much.
Like the athletes in my video above, they started off with the basics to get strong.
This meant a TON of bodyweight training. In fact, even with them squatting 475 and 495 lbs, guess what I give them for homework when they do not train at the gym?
That's right, MORE bodyweight training.
They perform squats, push ups, pull ups, lunges, jumping rope and they also play a lot of Basketball - what's more explosive than Basketball?
They sprint, jump, sprint and jump some more.
The 2 jumps we used prior to squatting heavy were kneeling jumps and the veritcal jump.
Now you can see how we use bodyweight training not only to improve strength and general physical preparation, but also to hype up the nervous system and get these beasts primed and ready to LIFT BIG!
