    actually, i can't think of any, but would assume anything that strengthens the hamstrings and calves would help.

    I can vouch for this program. 50-rep squats are killer!! They'll make a man out of you

    In the several weeks I've been doing them (in addition to plyometric routines), I've put a good 2 inches on my jump.

    Deadlifts, squats, good mornings, glute ham raises. You dont need anything other than that

    Yeah, those exercises only cover limit strength, you have to train explosive strength as well. And the snatch is the the weightroom exercise with the highest correlation to vertical jump.

    I've actually never seen much results from anything other than those exercises that I listed above. Never done cleans though. I've always felt that I've been doing them wrong and have never really found anyone to show me how to do them properly.

    Plyometrics never did anything but hurt my knees.

    Plyometrics: exercises that help develop quickness, agility, and vertical leap. In other words, exercises that mainly work your fast fibers.

    When you do leg work (Squats, leg press, calf raises, etc.) do it with explosion.
