Try the Air Alert trainning. It will definately help you in your vertical leap and leg speed.

As a volleyball player, I have to regularly practice my jump. I like to do muscle jumps and squat hops as well. Try to set a target and aim for it like the rim on a basketball net. How high is ur jump currently and how talll r u?

rope jumping really helps by increasing the strength of ur calf muscles...especially double-jumping, gets u used to the kinetics of jumping

air alert is a basketball training program to increase your vertical leap. if anybody here follows the NBA, baron davis and many other players use this program. i've heard stories from people that they increased their vertical leap up to 40 inches.

PlyometricsOriginally Posted by Hail2Fire
While standard strength training usually focuses on type I (slow-twitch) and type IIa (semi-fast-twitch) muscle fibers, plyometrics (& olympic-style power-lifting) develops the more explosive type IIb (fast-twitch) fibers. Some suggest that there is also a type IIIc fiber that can be trained to perform as either slow- or fast-twitch fibers... it depends on the type of (muscle) training that is predominant.

The Air Alert exercise program may include plyometric techniques... I don't really know enuff abt Air Alert to say for sure.
One place to find some plyometric leg exercises:
Try your own search, I'm sure that you'll find some good pages on the subject.

increase vertical jump by 40 inches? If you started with a jump of only 12 inches that would put your vertical jump at 52 inches, thats 4 ft 4 ins or over 130 cms!!!!
Consider that a basketball hoop is I think 10 feet off the ground, a six foot tall man would only need to jump just over 24 inches to reach the rim with his hand, so a vertical jump of 50 inches would be massive! Perhaps you mean a 40 cm increase?
