Vertical Jump Training Tips – How To Cheat For Faster Results
Lets face it… vertical jump training can be tiring, especially when you are training the wrong way and targeting the wrong muscles. When done wrongly, it’ll slowly drain all your energy and all your motivation… forcing you to give up your dream of playing your hops in the air.
One of the training principles that has worked very well for me and should for you too if you apply the same techniques and principles, is to always train your “weak” spot.
Now think about this… if you have a very strong thigh but a very weak calf, which muscle zone should you focus on in order to bring your vertical jump to the next level ?
You can either work on your thigh, which by then, requires a higher thrash hold in order for it to grow or, focus on your lesser muscle so that an “improvement” zone is being reached far faster and experiencing results in the shortest time possible.
While it is true that we should never neglect our strength, in order to cheat our way for faster results, we must focus on our weaker muscles. ( Note that I mentioned ‘cheat’ here… for this is not exactly the long term strategy but rather, a very powerful method to experience an increment in your vertical leap fast)
You see, an untapped muscle has a higher thrash hold of improvement while an already trained muscle has a lower thrash hold of improvement… so, if you put everything is perspective, do you want to continue working on improving 5% every week, or do you prefer to improve by 10 – 20% every week ?
If you ask me, obviously, I’ll choose the one that gives me the maximum gains and benefits.
So.. never neglect that 5%.. but if you want to see results fast, then the 10 – 20% is what you should spend more time on improving.
