Basketball workouts on how to jump higher are essential for athletes. Most athletes do not know where to begin and how to organize themselves. (http://www.kitchener-waterloo-chiropr...).

Building movement patterns and mimicking basketball-like movements is essential for training the body to move a certain way. The more it has done a certain movement, the easier it will become and the faster the brain can trigger the muscles. If you are currently performing a workout that does not incorporate functional training, strength and speed, you are doing yourself a disservice.

It is important to break down the most common movements and positions in basketball and then overload those movements with weights or elastic bands as I have done in the video. The ability to accelerate against resistance and speed will develop when the resistance is removed.

A basic foundation of strength is also essential to allow you to produce a large amount of force quickly. Power is a product of force and time so developing strength through functional movements is key. I discourage all my athletes from using machines, unless absolutely necessary.
