What is the secret to jumping higher?
Try plyometric exercises.
Examples of plyometric exercises include box jumps and depth jumps. A depth jump uses a starting position on a box, from which you step off. As soon as you hit the ground, you use explosive power to jump straight up. Broad jumps can also help you improve leg strength and explosive movements.
