Standing vertical vs. running vertical
« on: April 04, 2011, 05:42:00 pm »
I was wondering if there are exercises that would improve a standing vertical jump more than a running, two legged vertical jump, or vice-versa.  That is, although these two numbers may increase in tandem, is there a way to "focus" on one over the other other than just practicing the movement?

Well if you go really "strict" in terms of specificity, a squat will work to improve your standing VJ and a depth jump will be used to improve your running VJ. But obviously these things are intertwined and is not that simple.
