Can you touch the basketball hoop rim?

Great for showing off of course, but a good vertical leap is the ultimate sign of lower-body power. It shows that you can combine lower-body speed and strength into one quick movement. And that'll help with anytime you need explosive power—in any of your sports.

Your target height to leap, if you don't have a regulation basketball hoop to practice on is 10ft (3.05m). You can always chalk it up on a wall or tree.

If you want to progressively reach it this height, set your sights on the bottom of the backboard, or touching the net.

Recent advice

“I start with large strides, the last landing my left foot at the point where I will jump. As I bring my right (and dominant) leg next to my left, I begin lowering my center of gravity. As soon as my right leg plants, I redirect my momentum upward.”

Sue B Touch the rim Challenge

Contributorgold Sue B Done. Was soooo easy. But then again I had a big advantage. I used to be a High-jump athlete.

Awesome, Susan. I was a gymnast and I played BB - so I'm hoping that that experience is still wired in me somewhere lol

Terence F Touch the rim Challenge

Contributorbronze Terence F I am short, barely measuring 170cm (actually I'm only about 168) but I am a basketball player. I always lamented my height and used that as an excuse to not be able to touch the rim. Well, not anymore! Maybe I'm not up to dunking yet ( another goal eventually), but touching the rim-- that's a good start. I'm PUMPED!

Beau T and James B encouraged this.

Loren O Touch the rim Challenge

Contributorgold Loren O I used to be able to grab the rim without even thinking about it. Now, I can't even tap it. So disappointing. I have more work to do. I will complete this, though!
