Throughout the years, basketball has turned into a more athletic games. You’ll see this with the numerous vertical jump program around as everybody needs to take off through the air like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant and dunk as they do. Presently as far as height and God given capacity, not every person can be conceived with what NBA players have. That is in hereditary qualities and out of your control.
With regards to jump higher, you require each and every tool in your arsenal. The issue with having lots of tools, however, is that it’s hard to find out what works, and what doesn’t. Like everybody, I needed to figure out how to jump higher. For quite a while I didn’t generally know how. There were many peoples who gave me poor advice. And looking back now those were a waste of time.
Some guy recommended using ankle weights, another told me just to keep jumping many times everyday. I can’t say these things didn’t work but for the effort and time spent on them, you can really do much better than gaining a few measly inches after sweating your heart out after months. If I had to give those guys reviews, they wouldn’t be great.
That’s where Jacob Hiller’s Jump Manual comes in – a logical, step by step plan to jump higher for sport and life
According to the author, the Jump Manual have shown or created some formulas so we can easily remember the principles that he wants to teach us. Here are some samples of the formulas and principles that should be remembered.
When you are training, you need to train your explosion and not endurance. The equation, strength x quickness = explosion, is the basis of your training. You need to keep your workouts in the “improvement zone.” If it doesn’t reach that zone then do not train at all. Plyometrics are to be done minimizing the “amortization phase” and with each explosion it should have a maximum strength and speed.
There should be NO extra bounce or movements. LAP, which means for perfect plyometrics, Load- Amortization-Explode, treat each repetition with focus and intensity of the single event, recruiting all fibers, and firing all fibers at maximum rate, is the only way to extract the maximum benefit from a weight training regime. Lastly, train with 85% of your repetition max, and you need to do each repetition at maximum speed. In case the speed is jeopardized, the repetition should also be lowered.
Here is what you will get from The Jump Manual
- How to train in the proper way without wasting time on ineffective training techniques
- Gym equipment alternatives in case you cannot afford gym membership or something
- A nutrition plan that will enhance your leg and general body muscle building – this information is presented in charts making it very easy to follow.
- How to avoid injuries as you seek to perfect your jump
- Get an opportunity to try out the program almost for free, that is, for $1 for 21 days, see how you like it and then buy it
- You can also get a customized jump program from Jacob Hiller, made just for you. It will teach you how to enhance your offensive and defensive jumps
Jump Manual is perfect for you when:
– When you’re already a bit older (maybe > 35 years) and you feel like your capability for speed is not what it used to be. The ability to improve speed decreases with age, therefore, it might be more effective to do the Jump Manual and focus on your strength.
– You are a “Force” Jumper. This means that you are naturally jumping off of two feet and you are bending your knees very deep during jumps. These jumpers are often really muscular and gain very little height off the run compared to jumps from a standstill. This style of jumping is relatively slow and does not benefit as much by improving speed. Learn more about the different jump techniques here.
– You have had problems with your knees or other joints before. Depth jumps and other plyometric exercises can be hard on your joints.Therefore, Vert Shock might be problematic. Doing Jump Manual has the added benefit that stronger legs also deliver more stability and might prevent future injuries.
However, The Jump Manual is not a magic pill and Jacob Hiller lays it out right from the beginning. If you want to get the best results from this program you will need to work hard and be focused and disciplined.
