Vertical Jump

Type: Legs
Vertical jumps require a good level of aerobic fitness as well as strength and technique. They will add an extra dimension to your training program when looking to improve strength in the lower body as they also provide an aerobic element to work the heart and lungs. The vertical jump test is used as part of a fitness test routine to measure progress. An increase in vertical jump height indicates an effective improvement in fitness.
