Jumping higher is something every basketball player aims for during their amateur or professional careers. This newly acquired skill will allow you to dominate the zone and dunk and block opponents with ease but you need to properly time your movements as jumping higher does not necessarily mean playing better.
Many strength and conditioning coaches will recommend that subjects improve reactivity time and starting power which can be obtained by regularly practicing plyometrics. This form of training has long been used to increase your vertical jump. This will also help you to see marked improvements in other sports, such as high jump, volleyball, tennis, handball and squash, amongst many others.>
