If you have a dream of being a famous basketball or volleyball player then you will want to know how you can develop the abilities necessary to be able to out leap and outplay the other competitors. To be renowned at either of these sports will require a period of high jump training.

To start with you need to identify to what level you want to improve your leaping ability. Most top athletes will use a professional trainer that can help to motivate them and coordinate the workout regimes. If you are going to use a trainer or a friend to help you during your training then it is essential to choose someone that you respect and trust.

The exercises you will need to carry out in high jump training will work on strengthening and developing the leg muscles primarily but also enhance your overall posture, balance, coordination, and stamina. Exercises such as toe raises and leg presses can be done on a daily basis to rapidly improve your jumping ability. Remember to warm up before working out as if you pull a muscle you may be out of action for some time.

Another useful exercise is the jump squat. This involves leaping in the air from a squatting position. When doing any form of fitness regime it is essential that you have the right diet. There are supplements that can be taken that will quicken the time needed to develop muscle mass. Also make sure that you are keeping your body correctly hydrated.

Running and jumping is also an important skill as sports like basketball and volleyball are faced paced games. If you have access to an athletic track you can practice the hurdles. By sprinting and leaping you will be improving your leg muscles plus your coordination when in the air.

With the right dedication and training there is no reason why any of us cannot become a top basketball or volleyball player.
