Dirty Trick For Higher Vertical Jumps!

Sneaky sonofagun that I am, I have my volleyball athletes performing the wide-grip deadlift as their main lower strength exercise this training cycle.


It is a great exercise for a powerful hip extension, which translates to a higher vertical jump.

(Last time I checked, vertical jumps are important in volleyball....)

A bunch of our girls complained/whined/screeched that "girls don't DO deadlifts!"

Well, here's a short instuctional video. And it stars.... A GIRL!!

Take a look:

Butt down, chest up, push the floor with your heels.

To your vertical jump,
