There’s a right and a wrong way to jump. Jeff Macy, director of sports performance at Oregon State University, says simple technical corrections that allow you to jump right can add an inch or more to a volleyball player’s jump.
In this video, Macy offers advice to a young player on how she can use her legs and arms to boost her jump, and he also shows her a jump-enhancing lunge exercise.
VERT is a device worn near the waist of an athlete either by the VERT training clip or integrated within an article of clothing such as the VERT active waistband. VERT measures your jump and transmits the data to a smart phone or tablet. You can see all jump measurements immediately on the VERT device and simultaneously on a smart phone or tablet with the downloadable VERT app or VERT coach app. What was traditionally available with special stationary equipment to determine jump measurement, can now be done anywhere, anytime in real-time.
