By: Karin Manning

There are in fact vertical jump super foods that will help you increase your jump. This article will discuss jump super foods and which foods will help you decrease your vertical.

Not all foods are treated equal and not all fats should be avoided. In fact, studies have shown that eating monounsaturated fats like olive oil actually help you burn fat faster.

Having a fast and powerful jump is a direct result of your muscle versus weight ratio. Fat is heavy and weighs you down while strong, firm muscles give you explosive power.

These are some super foods that will help you build real muscle mass, and ultimately a significant jump increase.

1. Creatine. Creatine has been proven to be safe for building muscle and speeding up muscle recovery after strenuous workouts.

2. Low fat meats, fruits, vegies and salads. Eating unprocessed healthy foods will decrease your body fat while at the same time improving your health. These foods are high in Vitamin C, a powerful building block and protein. Be sure to try and incorporate protein rich foods in every meal for their powerful muscle building and fat burning properties.

If you're after a significant vertical jump increase then avoid some of the foods below:

I think you have an idea which foods to avoid to increase your vertical jump. All the ones that ultimately taste real good and are real bad for you.

High fat content foods, deep fried foods, foods with little nutritional value should be avoided at all costs as all that will do is overload your body with ineffective carbs and sugar that will all be converted to one thing... fat!

Also lower your intake of sugary soft drinks and cordial when looking for a powerful vertical jump increase.

Focus your attention on a lot of unprocessed foods healthy foods that don't overload your system and fill your body with heavy fat that ultimately is going to weigh your body down.

If you are serious about increasing your leap you need to find the right program that will meet your needs.

The best program for you will be able to be customized to your own individual and athletic needs and circumstances. Programs customize their workouts differently. One may concentrate on an individual's weaknesses, while another program will customize its program through performing repetitious exercise.

The best program will be able to customize your workout precisely according to your needs and not someone else's. It will also be able to individually take into account your weight, your height, your health, your fitness level and ultimately, your jump goal.

It will also offer multiple different training levels. The best program will increase your jump strength through both weight training and plyometrics.

I've briefly discussed what the best program should contain. Let me know touch on what it should never contain:
1. Outdated information from someone who has no experience in the industry
2. The same exercises that you used when you were 10 (years out of date)
3. Exhaustive sets and reps of the same vertical jump exercises over and over again.
4. Overtraining. Do not do a vertical jump workout every day.
5. Squat overtraining.
