Basketball Exercises Designed to Increase Your Jumping

Being able to jump high is obviously a goal of basketball players. This expertvillage video that I found on YouTube has the claim in the title of potentially increasing your jump by "up to six inches" and though I can neither confirm or deny that claim, I can say that the exercises recommended in this video look like they will certainly help your basketball game by increasing your leaping/jumping strength.

Ganon Baker's From Prep to Pros Short Advanced Drill Videos on YouTube

I have just finished looking through several Ganon Baker basketball drill videos free on YouTube.

This guy gives coaches some serious drills to consider. Two words of caution: first, each of the 21 short videos provide a short intense drill demonstration followed by a really short ad encouraging you to buy a video and secondly, some of the drills do not look safe for all ages. So while I think there are some really excellent drills in the free series, use your better judgment when considering these for the kids you coach.

That being said, if you have a few minutes I think that you will find some valuable skill and drill ideas in the free videos available at YouTube.
