Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

Scissor jumps, like paused scissor jumps, are an excellent exercise for improving your ability to absorb and stabilize landing forces. However unlike the paused version, regular scissor jumps are a more reactive focused drill.

Technique Tips

The idea of this exercise is to land and get back off the ground quickly. Focus on minimizing ground contact time but not at the expense of jump height.
