University of Florida Strength and Conditioning Coordinator, Preston Greene, utilizes the Snatch-Grip Dead Lift on Podium to train the entire body, especially the fibers in the legs that are used for jumping.

Snatch-Grip Dead Lift on Podium

Drill Summary: The player should stand on weights or a low box to increase the training in the lower back, glutes and hamstrings. Those muscles contribute to a large percentage of a player’s vertical jump. Starting low and going into a full extension when standing up makes sure that the entire body is used. A higher number of sets with a lower number of reps will produce the best results.

This video came from the Championship Productions’ video “AAU Basketball Skills Series: Increasing Your Vertical Jump.” See how you can learn more Basketball Strength Training Drills.
