Max Vertical Jump Rope Drill

Max Vertical Jump Rope Drill


The max vertical jump rope drill helps develop the player’s vertical and ability to jump multiple times in a row quickly. This jump rope workout will simulate a post player going for a block, not getting the block, and then immediately having to jump again to try and get the rebound. It could also simulate a player jumping multiple times to get a rebound or an offensive tip-in. This skill is used throughout the course of a game and is essential to post players.

Jump roping is a great way to get lots of reps in a short period of time at the same thing. Not only will it strengthen the player’s legs, but it will also help them develop their muscle memory on how they should be jumping each time. This is important because a lot of being able to jump higher or jump quicker comes down to technique and form. As an added bonus, this jump rope drill will help the player develop better footwork and timing. It is a must-add to any basketball training plan that is looking to develop athleticism.
