These vertical jump workouts are designed to help players jump higher, jump faster, and be more explosive on the floor. All of these actions translate into the game of basketball and different skills that involved with playing. Whether it is rebounding the basketball, contesting a shot, or finishing at the basket having an increased vertical and explosiveness will help. You still need to learn and use the fundamentals for these skill, but all of these skills can be made better by improving your vertical jump.
These vertical jump workouts are all in high quality video and text format. They are also instructed by basketball trainers and then demonstrated by high level basketball players as well. This will allow you as a player or basketball coach to really learn the proper technique for the workout and that will help to maximize the player development and vertical training.
If you want your team to be able to more athletic on the defensive end and get into passing lanes and contest shots you first need to teach them the correct way to cut off angles, how to line up a shot when contesting it, etc. However if your team is not very athletic or explosive on defense it isn’t going to work very well. This is just one example, but it shows the need for working on your team’s vertical jump and explosiveness in your basketball training time. Teach your team to be quick off their feet and ready to anticipate where the ball is going to go with these basketball training videos.
Being able to jump and be explosive is becoming almost a must in the game of basketball today. Players are becoming more and more athletic, and if you are not working on becoming more athletic yourself, then you are going to fall behind.
