To increase your vertical leap and jump higher you don`t have to do know some underground secrets. Good vertical jump is achievable for most athletes you just must know the right training principles. Know the basics of vertical leap! Image credit: verticaljumpsecret.blogspot.com To jump higher you must generate more force than your body weight, logical? The more force you can generate in very short period of time the higher you will jump. However not all jumping power comes from your legs. When you jump up the whole body is involved. Also your upper body is very very important so I believe that you`ll need to train your upper body and your lower body.
