    See how high and how many times you can jump in the air everyday, and then try to BREAK that record.

    or

    Don't work on jumping high because its a useless skill, but as your in TKD... they kind of go hand in han...

    uhhh, set up a length of rope the distance you want to be jumping up, and then jump over it?
    as jenfucious would say; "shut up and squat!"

    :D

    As with most anything of this nature:

    Skill - Practice jumping, particularly in the context of the desired application. You only get better at jumping by jumping. Keep this practice as CLOSE as possible to the actual application, or you will not get motor learning carryover. Jumping up some steps or boxes is not the same as jumping to do a kick.

    Strength - develop the strength of the musculature involved in jumping (hips, thighs, calves). As previously mentioned, a proper strength training system built around squats or deadlifts would achieve this.

    Sprint up bleachers or stairs then do it one leg at a time, and yes, STFU and squat.

    If you want to put a product...you can try strength shoes...prices but effective if you follow the exercises. In college we were on a system called "Air Alert II" and on average we added 3-5" to our verts. I think I still have the program somewhere, if I find it I'll post it.

    i got a copy of the air alert II exercises, seems simple enough. however, the site claims that it adds 8-15 inches..? is that a crock of **** or did you guys do a modified version of the program or something?

    Hang Clean,Power Clean, Power Squat. (I think that's the term for a PC to a front squat.) Get on the Leg Press machine and use a wide stance with your feet pigeontoed for your hip flexors. Those should help alot more than the AAII exercises. Don't buy any lame shoes that claim to boost your vertical either, that's just a load of BS and you'll wind up gaining less from them than you would a good strength training program. Also, why's the vertical jump matter so much? I'm curious

    Olympics lifts. All those guys have huge verticals. Even the super heavyweight guys.


    stay away from long cardio sessions. Those can empede your progress.
    sprints, plyometrics and practing the actual movements your applying it to like was already mentioned.
