Deconstructing the Jump Shot

Back Arm
With your bridge arm at an angle, you will be able jack up the back of the cue while still keeping your back arm in an ideal position.

Notice how everything concerning your back arm is almost identical to a normal shot. With your elbow directly above the cue, you should have your shoulder, upper arm, forearm and wrist in line with the cue.

The natural tendency during a jump shot is to clench your grip hand. You want to have a quick, powerful stroke, so you might think that tightening up will give your cue more of a punch, but it will just cause problems. Keep a slightly firm grip, but don't tense up at the moment of impact.
