Working on my vertical jump

Vertical jump is achieved by having good leg strength combined with the ability to transform this strength into power in explosive movements. You increase your vertical jump in several ways. One is to gain strength by doing some heavy leg exercises. Another is to gain speed by plyometric training. I like to combine these by doing  some workouts with heavy weights, some workouts with lighter weights and explosive lifts, like my olympic workouts, and some workouts with pure jumping drills. Here is a short sample from my latest jumping workout. In this video I finish of with 8 Reebok steps. I challenge you to do the same thing, and comment here with a link to your video! Go have fun!

  4. Hei Ståle!

    Tok utfordringen:

    Her kan du se hvordan det gikk med 9 kasser:

    Hoppene ble gjort etter etter dropset i frontbøy, så neste gang starter jeg heller med hoppene ;) Førstemann til 9?

  5. Så bra Martin :-) God spenst på deg! Enig, førstemann til 9 kasser.

    Her er en av kollegaene mine som forsøker. Blir gøy!

  6. Takk :) Vi har sikkert mye å gå på begge to. Jeg for min del har nok spensten som et resultat av mye trening på maks-styrke. Har ikke trent mye spesifikt på spenst, men det hadde vært gøy hvis 9 kasser gikk!

    Skal prøve å få med meg noen andre PTer på elixia kolbotn på utfordringen!

    Går du på kanalen kan du finne klipp av 9 kasser hvorav den øverste var hakket høyere. Dette gikk nesten - Nytt mål er 10 kasser!

  8. Bra spenst på deg Martin!! Men for å være litt pirkete så er det litt for langt tilløp. Tilløpet skal bare være ett skritt eller to :-) Men så lenge du har spenst nok så kommer det veldig raskt. Er bare snakk om teknikk og utnyttelse av styrken.

  9. Aha! Det kan helt sikkert gjøre litt forskjell, ja. Jeg tenkte jeg skulle teste helt stillestående også, uten ett eneste skritt. Og i tillegg fra sittende posisjon.

    Han her får det til;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUHXKSOvcgE

    137 er det. Han er nok en del lavere enn oss, og har ingen skritt før hoppet.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Haha Martin. Der fant du hvordan det skal gjøres! Utrolig imponerende. Hvor høy er du forresten?

  11. Vet ikke om du kjenner til Joe defranco, men han er en av de mest suksessfulle coachene for atleter i USA. Alt fra amerikanske fotballspillere til basket, baseball, og vanlige sinnsyke talenter.

    Brian Cushing, NFL spiller: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epW8IKLngBA

    162 cm. 120-ish kg tung. INSANE

    Her ser du hva defranco is all about! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekZYPGxQbno


    Jeg er 182 cm. Du?

  12. Kjenner til deFranco ja. En av kolegaene mine er fan! Beinhard trening da! Prøver å hente litt derfra, men vet ikke hvor vi skal ha en prowler på sjølyst ;-)

    Jeg er 174 høy og 95 kilo tung så ikke akkurat grasiøs hehe

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hehe, prowler er ikke lett å få plass til hos oss på kolbotn heller.

    Har testet litt crossfit/ghetto-workouts på en skole i nærheten med en kollega. Det er mange som har sett klippet og er interessert i å være med på det nå til våren.

    Sjekk det ut her: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_trgr2DcqUw

    Vi har skaffet traktordekk på 300 kg og litt av hvert utstyr så nå blir det kule PT-bootcamper fremover!

    Jeg hadde sett for meg at du var minst like høy som meg. Ikke rart du er temmelig grov i muskulaturen! Imponerende!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Kul video :-) Bra opplegg dere har på gang.

    Takk forresten. Ikke spesielt høy nei, så kompenserer med å prøve å bli bredere ;-)

  16. I believe everything said made a ton of sense.
    However, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I ain't suggesting your content is not solid, but what if you added a post title that grabbed folk's attention?
    I mean "Working on my vertical jump" is a little vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they create post headlines to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've got to
    say. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.
