If you want to be able to jump higher and dunk in basketball, and you want to see results FAST, you must know the basic fundamentals to jumping.

A lot of basketball players, especially younger ones, neglected this extremely important part of training... and that is to stretch.

Why Stretching Is Important In Your Vertical Jump Workout

A lot of young players started out without a proper coaching system in place. Thus, many fail to fully realize their potential.

Because of the many "self taught" ways, most neglect this utmost important part before a game... and that is.. stretching.

Stretching helps to improve your flexibility and athleticism, which is key to increasing your ability to jump higher.

A well stretched body and muscle enables your body to perform better, thus, enabling you to jump higher during a game or a workout. When your body is at its maximum or full potential, especially during training, it enables your body and strength to go the extra mile and further increase the strength and endurance of your muscles.

Now, think about this, apart from performing better, do you think your body is going to receive the maximum gain from a flexible and well warmed up muscle or a cold and ridged muscle ?

The answer is pretty obvious. 

In order to increase your vertical hops as a basketball player, it is crucial you give a 20 minutes for stretch before you start your workout routine or even before a game.

Like I've said, stretching alone can bring your leaping ability into new heights... and when you combine this single routine into every vertical jumping workouts you have set in place, the end result is going be more than what you asked for.
