For some athletes, vertical jump height is a major pain point.
Everyone wants to jump higher, and when no one’s proud of a weak vert.
Those with the right DNA can increase their vertical by simply jumping more.
But for most athletes, this isn’t the case.
However, even if Michael Jordan-esque hops aren’t in your genetics, there are still ways you can build a truly impressive vertical jump.
I don’t believe I was born as a great jumper, but through the use of smart training techniques, I now boast a vertical of almost 40 inches.
Most people can’t jump high because they simply don’t know the best way to train the ability.
With that in mind, here are 10 tips I’ve used to increase my own vert and help many athletes dunk.
