Basketball players seeking to increase their vertical leap and explosiveness can take advantage of various kneeling jumps. Start by getting into the low position with your knees on the ground — then swing back before jumping forward and getting straight up. Once you’re already standing upright, basketballers can even take the exercise further by doing a vertical jump, broad jump, or lateral bounce to more advanced level. Remember to use a yoga mat for support if necessary. Aim for four sets with four to five reps each in a row, and rest for one to two minutes between sets. Doing these kneeling jumps consistently will add greater power and agility to basketballers’ game play.
