Summer is here! School is out and now that athletes have some extra time, it’s the perfect opportunity for them to focus on their training in order to get ready for tryouts and the next season.

Jump training, also known as plyometric/speed/muscular endurance training, is geared toward athletes looking to increase their vertical, speed, power, balance, and agility, as well as reduce injury onset.

It designed to have athletes working a variety of movements (including jumping, sprinting, and agility) in multiple planes and have their muscles exert maximum force in short intervals.

It is great for all sports, but it is especially important for athletes looking to increase their vertical, such as in volleyball, basketball, and track.

It is also an effective method to reduce the incidence of sports injuries, including the most common type which takes place during a deceleration task (such as a rapid change of direction or when trying to stop instantly).

How it Works

Our program focuses on improving athletic performance within the Stabilization, Strength, and Power levels of the OPT Model.

In order to progress in the Power level, the athlete first needs to have a good base of stability, strength, and aerobic conditioning.

This style of training plays an important role in the success of many sports that require explosive vertical or linear movement by increasing athletic performance while also reducing risk of injury.

The Phases

Phase 1: Pre-Season (Stabilization)
Everything should be done with ease and grace, smooth, soft, and quiet movements. The athlete will work to hold postures in order to build the proper foundation. Quality over quantity is the focus.

Phase 2: In-Season (Intensify)
Plyos are now of reactive quality. Low box depth jumping, hurdle hop and stick, depth jump to vertical med ball throw. Focus is on minimal contact time. Taking soft contacts from Phase 1 to fast contacts in Phase 2.

Phase 3: Post-Season (Specific)
Big increase in intensity and specificity. Strongest effort and duration of jump, sprint, and plyometric work. The focus should be at 90% max effort, hard but not measured. When working at 97% max it should be all out but at a relaxed state.

Phase 4: Off-Season (Flight & Explosive Force)
This power-based phase will focus on flight and explosive force. However, the goal of this phase is to slightly under train while rotating through force, repetition, and speed techniques. Actual jumping is of the highest priority. It is recommended that you supplement with more HIIT classes during this phase when needed. This is a great route for elite team sport athletes to take.
