Improve Jumping Ability With Barrier Jumps
Develop explosive power and increase jumping ability with barrier jumps.
Barrier jumps are a plyometric exercise that use compound movements to push and explode of the ground with a use of dynamic force produced by the upper and lower body. This drill is great for triple extension of the hip knee and ankle. The drill also works shoulders and spine. Barrier jumps are great for vertical and horizontal jumping mechanics.
To perform this drill set up 3 to 5 Barriers (hurdles cones bags ect.) in a row approx. 1-2 yards apart. Swing your arms back and forth, jump over hurdles with both feet as high as possible. When landing minimize ground contact and jump over the next barrier. Repeat the drill 3-4 times. As you improve your ability adjust barriers for different heights and distances.
