1  General / Ulti Development / Verticle Workout on: September 16, 2010, 12:22:09 AM
As a 5' 10" player, I find myself at the short end of the stick when it comes to catching discs in crowds and/or over defenders (especially those on my team who are above 6 feet). Reading the disc, picking an attack angle, and boxing out are my defender are all things I know and do well. However, I lack the ups to really get up for floating discs, which means that I never catch floating throws unless I have inside position.

Are there any recommended workouts/excerises to help me increase my verticle leap?

Thanks to you both!

I'll look into Dry Hands, but is there a real glove solution to throwing in the rain?

I know from experience that wearing gloves in ultimate is typically frowned upon, but I believe that I have some extenuating circumstances regarding my decision to be in the market for a good pair of gloves to play ultimate with.

When there are wet conditions (from as much as rain to as little dew during a morning game) I lose all ability to flick. I rather pride myself on my great flick hucks, but with a wet disc I the disc ends up slipping out of even my tightest grip before my wrist and arm have fully snapped. I have tried to carry a QB towel with me to wipe of excess water from the disc. Although that works on turn overs when I pick up the disc, if I catch a disc that hasn't been wiped off, I lose the ability to even perform a 10 yard continuation flick. The same applies for the hot, humid weather where I live in, which causes my palms and fingers to sweat profusely.

Any ideas on the gloves I should be looking into?
