Want to increase vertical jump for basketball? Skeptical of the claims of adding 8-12 inches to your jump height in only 6 weeks? Listen to this week’s podcast and get the truth about how to jump higher from an expert in basketball performance training.
Dr. Ramsey Nijem is Men’s Basketball Director of Sports Performance at the university of Kansas. They finished the year ranked number 1 in the nation, pushing my Zags into the number 2 spot in all the polls… but I won’t hold that against him.
