10 Benefits Of Picking Up A Jump Rope

What's going on guys, welcome back to I remember when I was in elementary school, there was this fundraising campaign going on throughout the district every year called “Jump Rope for Heart”. I think it was to encourage kids to raise money for awareness of physical activity, healthy eating, and childhood obesity.

What I remember most is when I can jump rope with my friends and follow the program. T-shirt that I used to wear around all the time. I loved it!

Well, now, as an adult, I’ve rediscovered my love for the old skipping rope. I recently mentioned that the lady who’s been giving me reiki sessions recommended I give it a try as a way to get my heart pumping throughout the day and improve my energy. Well, I took the suggestion, and I’m hooked! So I wanted to share with you ten great reasons why you may consider picking up a jump rope.

#1. Exercise is important for beautiful skin

If you want beautiful skin, you need to exercise. You don’t have to go to …

Best Vertical Jump Workout Program

What's up guys, welcome back to In this article I’m going to be answering a simple question that a lot of athletes have. The question is, “Which vert workout will give me the quick and most explosive gains in my jumping ability?”.

Many people do not realize that this question, though simple, is not always easy to answer.

Athletes have different needs when it comes to training their vertical. They often fall into different categories based on the way that they take off from the floor.

To be effective, the leap program must meet the unique athlete's characteristics.

If you are worried about choosing the wrong training, do not be afraid!

I will show you exactly where I learned the best vertical jump training routine. That's why I made Flight Basketball in the first place!

Who Am I?

My name is Pat, and I’m a regular guy who struggled for years to add inches to my vertical.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not an amazing athlete. I do not have someo…

Tips To Help You Get A Higher Vertical Jump

Increase Your Vertical with a Great Vertical Jumping Program

What's going on guys my name is Alan from As an introduction (and to save your time!), I have personally used and now completely endorse this vertical jumping program, check it out now. Vertical jumping programs can be hard to find. There are many good and simple exercises that will improve your vertical, but not necessarily your quickness.

Some programs are great for teaching speed, but just average for jumping.. So you need to combine both elements in your workout.One simple exercise that is a must in order to improve your speed is Wind Sprints: sprint for 50 meters, then rest for 20 seconds.

Try to do this 3 times a week and you will see improvement soon due to increased leg strength.Jump Rope is another solid exercise to utilize for your vertical jumping program. Try to jump rope 4 times a week with 200 jumps per session to improve your calf strength and really add to your leaping ability by making you more explosive.

Finally, plyometric exercises ar…

Tips and Trick Doing The Vertical Jump

What's going on guys, my name is Alan from and today I'm gonna share with you about Tips and Trick Doing The Vertical Jump.

Use your adrenaline!

A shot of adrenaline from getting nervous is bad for public speakers, golfers, and field goal kickers, but it's very good for dunkers or weightlifters. Adrenaline increases your muscles' capacity to do work by dialating the blood vessels and providing an extra boost of oxygen to your muscles. So if you want to jump higher instantly, try to make yourself nervous.

Warm Up!

Jump on wooden courts!

Not only are wooden courts easier on your knees than outdoor concrete or asphalt courts, they can also have a small "springlike" effect to give you an extra inch or so.

Jump straight up!

You don't gain any height by jumping forward. And you also don't gain any "hang time." Someone who jumps 40" high and dunks from the free throw line stays in the air the same amount of time that he w…
