Tips

  1. Do not rest on the ground. This is very important. Once your feet touch, immediately explode of the ground.
  2. Keep arms at your sides when stepping off the platform. Swing arms up when exploding off the floor. This will give you the momentum to jump higher.
  3. Keep a natural arch in your back. Squat down at the hips and knees when jumping off the ground.

Variations

  1. Setup two more platforms and jump on each platform just as if your were jumping off the first one, but do it quickly.
  2. Wear a weighted vest and perform exercise. After wearing the vest you will feel a tremendous increase in your ability to jump higher.
  3. Instead of swinging your arms to give you momentum, try placing both hands behind your head and jumping without any help from the arms.
