How High Can You Jump ?
What Parts Of Your Body Help You Jump Higher ?
During a jump , you perform hip flexion and knee extension, which both activate the quadriceps. A squat is a exercise that can help you gain more strength in your quads.
You activate your hamstrings through hip extension and knee flexion. All three parts of the hamstring (biceps femoris ,semitendinosus and semimembranosus ) help you have an explosive jump.
The calves have two parts -the gastrocnemius and soleus.
Both parts function to plantar- flex the foot. This motion occurs when you jump off the ground and point your toes downward.
