Tuck Jumps are another favourite vertical jump training exercise. They are not only fun to do, but are also tremendous reactive strength builders. The version of tuck jumps I prefer my athletes use is the successive tuck jump. Tips below.
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. Imagine the floor is like hot lava and aim for minimal ground contact time.
If you can't jump back up quickly then it is ok to reset between jumps, but for reactive strength gains try and go with the minimal ground contact version.
Tuck jumps are a great vertical jump exercise, but for the really fast gains on our vertical you need to check out the methods described inner Game Changers book. These methods are unlike anything else you will ever use and provide for improvements far beyond regular jump training. For more information click below.
