Cone Hops

Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

Cone hops are great for developing reactivity. The two legged version is easier than the single leg, but none the less is also an excellent exercise for developing ankle strength.

Technique Tips

The emphasis on all reactive exercises is to land, stabilize and absorb the landing forces, and then explode back off the ground quickly. This is no different. Jump back and forth over the cone (or in the case of the video the sand bag - really anything can be used) trying to minimize ground contact time and maximize jump height.
