Lunge jumps are great for opening up your hips and improving your flexibility when jumping. Too many athletes don’t use the proper technique when jumping, and it isn’t that they are not strong enough; it is that they don’t really know how to jump. This is a great basketball vertical jump drill for getting a lot of reps at jumping the right way.

  1. Is there a way to select various videos and put them in a cue to review together without having to go find them?

  2. That is a good question. We have actually talked about adding this feature to the site, and hopefully down the road it will be available. Right now though the best suggestion I can offer is to open the drills up in different tabs, or bookmark them in your browser. Thanks for being a part of the site!
