Most of the exercises which are designed to enhance the height of our jump are commonly focused on the leg portion of the body. Training how to jump higher requires a lot of hours doing leg exercises such as squats.
These exercises are quite focused on the leg portion of the body; this enhances the power and the explosiveness of the leg when jumping. A plyometric workout will help you jump higher.
Although power and the explosiveness of the leg when jumping is a very important factor, there are other factors which may also affect the quality of the jump.
One that we have little knowledge of is that body movement may also affect the height and quality of the jump. A plyometrics workout is the best way to jump higher.
Coordination of the body is a very important aspect when one is jumping. Jumping can be considered as a movement which is in a certain flow; there should be continuity with the flow so that the jump will be delivered well. And this can only be done if there is coordination with the parts of the body so that the movement will be enhanced.
We considered jumping as a flow; the flow starts from the lower portion. One should be aware of the movements of the body and he should consider it to be in a constant flow.
So you see the flow starts from your ankle up to your knees this starts to propel you up but your hips should also follow by bending your back a little and when the pressure is released your hands should also go with the flow so that the momentum may be added and not disrupted.
Certainly if you were able to execute this in a very effective manner you can certainly be able to jump higher and in more explosive manner.
