The Jump Manual: Will it work for you?
So you want to jump higher? Do you want to be able to dunk a basketball or spike a volleyball? You have probably been searching online for the best exercises to do and want to know the fastest way to add inches to your vertical. Well, I was in the same situation a few years ago, I was 6’ 2” and I could barely grab the rim. I was one of the tallest guys on my basketball team and I wanted more than anything to be able to dunk.
I heard about the Jump Manual and it seemed to be a really well thought out program and they promised to add 10 inches to your vertical. At first I thought, “yeah right”, but the more I read on their website, the more the exercises seemed to make sense. And, since it comes with a 60 day guarantee I figured there was nothing to lose.
Where did the Jump Manual come from?
The Jump Manual was designed by Jacob Hiller, a performance enhancement coach and personal trainer who has been involved with vertical jump training theory for 10 years and trains high school and college athletes and coaches, professional and NBA players, Olympians and professional dunkers.
Jacob originally designed this program in 2004 after achieving a 44 inch vertical for himself. He went on to develop a method to help others systematically exceed 40 inches in vertical jump ability by implementing his multi-faceted explosion training.
After he started training some students that were gaining more than 20 inches on their running vertical leap, Jacob was encouraged to start publishing the manual. The Jump Manual became available online in February of 2008 and has been attracting a significant user base ever since. Testimonials and thank you emails are received almost daily.
What do you get with the Jump Manual?
You get instant download access to the Jump Manual, which includes the Jump Manual ebook printable download that explains all of the exercises, videos of how to perform all of the exercises and stretches, a complete and progressive workout chart, and an exact nutrition plan to get your body in muscle building mode.
And for guaranteed success, you get one month included one-on-one coaching with Jacob to answer personal questions through email and by phone if deemed necessary to make sure you are doing everything possible to get the most out of your jump manual training. This way you can ask specific questions about the program and make sure that you are doing every exercise correctly and get help if you are having trouble with results.
You can also gain access to the Elite Jumpers Form, which can be invaluable for motivation when you are connected to other motivated people that are striving for the same goal. This forum can keep you motivated and accountable for achieving your vertical goals.
Expected results for the Jump Manual
According to the Jump Manual website, most people that stick to the training see an increase of at least one inch a week while following the program. Many users see quicker results than that.
Here is what some customers are saying about The Jump Manual:
“I’m 6 foot on a good day. Been trying to get my vertical to 50″ and I’m gonna do it. With The Jump Manual training I have been able to get my vertical to the upper 40s. Now I can 360 two handed dunk, alley oop, and dunk in between my legs. I have gained well over 17 inches using the trainings…”
“Thanks to you I have increased my vertical by at least three inches and i am the only seventh grader in the district who can touch the rim. If you keep this up I’ll be dunking in eighth grade- thanks.”
– Chance Matlock
“I got the jump manual a little while ago. I really hit it hard right after i got it because I got it when school was out and I am super impressed. I’ve already gained 3 inches in the first 2 weeks and I have never gained that much before. I’m looking forward to the following weeks.”
– Tanner W.
I personally gained about 2 1/2 inches in the first week alone because of the tips that The Jump Manual provides about improving your form. This was a real eye opener and gave me instant added inches. Then, over the course of the next 12 weeks going through the program pretty much exactly as it is laid out (nutrition guide and everything), I lost about 15 pounds and gained over 10 inches on my vertical. I can now dunk with both hands with no running start with ease. That has been my ultimate goal and dream!
What makes The Jump Manual different from other vertical increase programs?
The Jump Manual is a multi-faceted approach to vertical gain exercise programs. Jacob claims that there are nine different improvable aspects from which you can increase your vertical explosion. The Jump Manual will give you a better understanding of the correct training methods and why 90% of people do the right exercise the wrong way.
You will also learn the most commonly neglected aspects of a correct diet that will allow your muscle recovery to improve by 150%, which will result in faster gains and greater injury prevention. A correct understanding of what plyometrics really are, why most people are doing them incorrectly, and how to use them to get an unfair training advantage.
Resistance training is another highly neglected aspect in most vertical jump programs and The Jump Manual will show you how to use it to further increase your gains. Untargeted but highly involved muscle groups have been left untapped by many vertical jump training programs, use them to get your whole body involved in upward propulsion.
You will also learn advanced flexibility techniques to strengthen your muscles, provide leverage to your movements, and allow your muscles to contract more powerfully than before which is commonly neglected in other training courses.
With all of these facets specifically designed to work together, The Jump Manual goes above and beyond most other jump higher programs.
Things to watch out for:
This program, as with any other exercise program, is not going to do anything without some hard work and dedication. If you stick to the program and follow the chart as well as do your best to eat healthy, you will see results. If you truly desire to add 10 inches or more to your vertical and you stick with the program, you will see results.
The other thing to watch out for is that this program claims that you do not need any other equipment other than the training guide, however they do describe exercises that require weights for added muscle gain. They really are not necessary, but having access to a gym or dumbells would be very beneficial to getting results with this program. The program includes weight room alternative versions of every exercise in case you do not have access to any weights or exercise equipment.
Is it really guaranteed?
When you get the Jump Manual directly from the official website, you get a 60 money back guarantee. However there is a very low return rate for The Jump Manual because the program has proven to be so successful for most of its customers. If you are dedicated and simply follow the program chart, you will be gaining inches on your vertical in no time.
