Rebounding is all about desire for the basketball and, sure, being taller and bigger can help, but, naturally, if you can jump higher than your opponent you have a much better shot of getting the rebound.

So how exactly can you increase your vertical jump for rebounding?

\While there are thousands of videos on how you can increase your vertical jump. Those videos are usually just guys who can jump really high trying to sell you vertical jump training programs.

Most exercises deemed plyometrics actually aren’t plyometric at all.

Here, we’re going to get into the science on how you can jump higher, and, hopefully increase your rebounds per game average.

Well, first things first, obviously you need to practice jumping. And this follows suit with the
