Vertical Leap & Explosion

In the Zone is proud to offer Vertical Leap and Explosion Training, featuring our newly acquired VertiMax™ training platform.

Primary program focus:

Increase the athlete’s vertical leap and improve explosion, including first step quickness.

This is a complex training program incorporating low-load velocity-specific training (Vertimax™), plyometrics, functional training (medicine ball drills, tire flips) core muscle building and resistance band work. VLET is an intense program; students need to be in good shape.

The goal of this program is to increase vertical leap by 2 inches in just 4 weeks!!

Get Faster too:
On average, a 2 ½ inch increase in vertical leap will equate to shaving 0.1 seconds from a 40 yard dash time.

Phase I and Phase II Training

Phase I training is the initial 4-week program. Phase II is a more intense, follow-up program and can only be done upon successful completion of Phase I training. Phase I and II classes are held at the same time; the main difference is that Phase II incorporates more reps, more sets, increased use of Jump Soles and more/higher resistance (weighted vests/ankle weights, etc).
