The important thing to remember is that whatever you decide, keep it simple. This means there are not complex, multi-level workouts, there are simply routines.
This simple part is what will keep you on your track. Once you get into this routine, you will love the freedom you feel. Now, I want to share with you one of my favorite routines. This routine is about jumping rope and squatting. By the way, I am not endorsing this, or writing a review about it.
This is simply using the best home fitness equipment, to do these routines. They work to target your thighs, calves and buttocks. You can do this as many as you want. By the way, I am using this as an example, so that you will know exactly how to perform this.
Leg Workouts to Increase Vertical
Here is the routine.
* You will want to do about 15 minutes of warm up stretches. This is a good way to get your body ready to go. Just get your body ready to jump rope. You want to be loose, but ready to go for the jump rope.
* You want to do 5 minutes of weighted squats and 5 minutes of squats with weights. You need to feel the weights on your thighs. It is ok if the weights are too light. You will be jumping on weighted platforms in the future.
* You will then do 15 minutes of jumping rope. As you jump rope, you need to do a quick warm up. This will help you to really jump for the rope.
* Once you complete your jumping rope routine, you need to do 5 minutes of squatting. You need to squat and get them wet! This is to get your body ready for the squats to come.
That is all you need to do. You are going to be doing 15 minutes of jumping rope and 5 minutes of squatting. It will be a good sweat workout. You may only need to do this once or twice.
So what is really happening here? The idea is to jump rope for 15 minutes, and then squat for 5 minutes, with a quick warm up (squats) and jumping rope for 5 minutes. This will give you the energy you need for the next step, which is squatting with weights for the next 5 minutes.
Doing this exercise on a weighted machine, will not help you to get the best workout. There is another option. Do squats with a medicine ball, or dumbbells. You can do some medicine ball squats, or dumbbell squats, you can do some lunges, and then your next step is jumping rope.
Do this process until you do 5 minutes of squats. Then, jump rope for 5 minutes, then do 5 minutes of squatting, then jump rope for another 5 minutes. This will give you enough time to do 5 minutes of jumping rope, and 15 minutes of jumping. Then, do another 5 minutes of squats, and another 5 minutes of jumping.
That should give you enough time to do 15 minutes of jumping and 15 minutes of squats. You can do this alternate, twice a week. The idea is to workout this way, working up to doing 5 minutes of jumping and 15 minutes of squats.
