Find out what is the best exercise to increase vertical jump for basketball or volleyball – Updated


Without a doubt the power clean/push press or push jerk is one the best one out there.

A short 12 week periodization using this lift as end goal will sure increase your vertical jump.

Here is how the   power clean/push press is performed correctly.

Make sure to keep the reps very low (1-3), and to do a minimum of 6 sets, resting 3 minutes between sets and using a tempo of XOXO on the lift.
