Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

Single Leg Seated Jumps are all about developing force quickly. In the seated position your muscles are more relaxed than when standing.

Technique Tips

Being in the seated position allows you to relax your muscles more than when you are standing. Between reps, relax as much as possible and concentrating on jumping as quickly as you can. Don't expect to get very high. With no eccentric portion, jumping off one leg, and also jumping from a relaxed and seated position generally strips away the leverage and momentum advantages you get with many other drills.
