Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

Tuck Jumps are another favorite. They are not only fun to do, but are also tremendous reactive strength builders. The addition of the weight vest helps add some resistance to your jumps forcing you to work that much harder, but unlike using a medicine ball you are still able to freely swing your arms.

Technique Tips

Most people have performed tuck jumps in school gym classes. However if you are new to the exercise just remember to try and spring back off the ground quickly and bring your knees up as high as you can on each rep.
