Jumping Vertically, and Higher!!

As humans, we are born explorers, and being outdoors is a key part of being vibrant and active all throughout life. Most of us will admit, though, that we could be in far better shape. And for those of us who are getting up there in years, staying active and limber is more important than ever. No one wants to imagine themselves stuck in a wheelchair or struggling to walk using a cane, but if we become sedentary, that is a sad reality of getting old without moving enough. 

This infographic aims to help anyone who wants to have stronger, more toned legs that will make them feel more energetic and powerful, especially when hiking or walking in rough terrain. Have you ever had to jump down off something, like a hill, ledge or rock? That can be tough to do, but what about jumping up onto something? Although it’s a move most of us don’t ever think about, having the muscle strength to perform such a feat can be a huge advantage for any outdoor enthusiast, whether you’re a hiker, climber or even just an occasional walker. 

If you are one of the many people who would like to be able to jump vertically, both higher and with more control, here are ways to get you started, and keep you going with your vertical jumping training. You can just jump into it – pun intended – you must have the proper equipment and techniques to build up your endurance and make those leg muscles capable of taking you to a brand new height. Even if you aren’t an athlete by definition, be able to jump higher when necessary could not only be convenient, it can be downright lifesaving. The next time you see a mouse in your house, you’ll be able to leap up onto the nearest chair in seconds. Seriously speaking, stronger legs throughout life is a win-win for anyone, so let’s get started, shall we?
