    35 inch vertical jump > you
    so lately, ive been doing alot of the modified calf raised you guys told me about, a shit ton of dead lift (315 with that weird circular bar thing) and alot of squats (225 as low as i can go untill failure)

    and got the vert measured today, i was at 36.5!!! :love: my nigs hopefully this trend continues and i get into the low 40's, then if i actually put this shit to use all my F&N nigs will see me on TV

    :love: thanks for all the constructive criticism

    it depends really..the taller guys are about where i am at, a little higher, most of the pf's are low-mid 40's im not even 6'5, so vert is my savior

    Power snatch is when you dont' dip down at all to catch the weight? Does the regular snatch where you dip down then squat up the weight help also?

    Verticle jump is one of the best ways to measure athleticism. Over 30" is really good. Over 40" is ridiculous.

    Power snatch is just a slight bend when you catch it. The point is to do as little squatting as possible, focusing entirely on the explosive portion to get the weight up over your head.

    i'd guess the most explosive moves are the most helpful when it comes to increasing vert..

    squats with a jump at the top, gm's with the extra push at the top, etc etc.

    Plyometrics probably will give you the fastest results, stuff like depth jumps.

    How do you measure? By holding your hand above your head? Couldn't you lean to the side and add an extra inch or two?

    I'm curious what my vert is now.

    we have this mat that you stand and jump on, either that or there are little things that twirl around, and you jump up and the higherst one you move is the highest point.. its kinda hard to explain

    but why would you cheat yourself and add fake inches?

    plyometrics got me from 24-35, but then i saw absolutely no gains at all from plyometric exercises in a solid 8 months, and its not that i wasnt giving all my intensity, i just figured that 35 was my max

    People use those techniques (raising both hands, depressing the shoulder blades) at the NFL combine and such to get the highest measurement possible.

    A while back i did a vertical jump after having not done one since i started squatting and deadlifting regularly. In mid air I went "whoa what the hell am i doing way up here." Very cool/weird feeling.

    took me about a year and a half, at 25 inches i weighed 185, at 35 i was 205, right now i weigh 215, but im cutting down to hopefully 195...

    my routines were jump roping, depth jumps, weighted lunges, box jumps (12,24,36) stationary long jumps, jump and tuck, these things we called "chair jumps" where you have a chair or some kinda tall object, you have one leg on it and the other on the ground, you jump up and change legs midair, then explode up again when you land. and this drill called "monster" where there is a ball at the free throw line, you start baseline, sprint and pick up the ball, dunk it, put it back on the line, sprint baseline and repeat.

    i did this 3 times a week during the offseason, and didnt do anything but jumprope daily untill failure during the season
