How Do I Jump Higher?

Developing athleticism is a process. It’s not a matter of finding a secret exercise or doing a magical workout. It’s a matter of doing the right things the right way consistently over time.

No matter who you are, whether you a have a 14-inch vertical or a 40-inch vertical, you need to address movement fundamentals. Fundamentals like hip and ankle mobility, squat mechanics, the hip hinge movement, and postural control. You do not want to start building before the foundation is laid.

With the foundation in place, you can develop skill by practicing jumping frequently, and you add force to your movement with training that directly targets strength, explosiveness, and bounce.

Of course athletes vary greatly in these physical qualities that determine athleticism. That variation requires that training be customized to the abilities of the athlete.

Years ago I had sample programs posted on the site, but the problem was they were only appropriate for a fraction of the people that visited. This frustrated me, so I began writing programs for all types of athletes. But even then, I had no definite way of communicating who should do what. As I continued to learn, I began trying to classify athletes to easily determine what training each should do. After much trial and error, writing, rewriting, experimentation, and tweaking, I finalized a system for evaluating and classifying athletes based on some basic training measures. I then wrote complete vertical jump training programs for athletes that fit into the various categories. As I continued to learn and grow as a coach, that system and those programs evolved into what is now Jump Science 2.0.

If you are willing to work hard to become a great athlete, but need guidance on what exactly to do, Jump Science 2.0 is perfect for you. This is a collection of information, training programs, and instructional videos designed to help an athlete at any level not just jump a little higher a month from now, but actually develop into a great athlete over time.

Here are some more details…

-Jump Science 2.0 uses a simple evaluation process that classifies athletes into different levels based on flexibility, mechanics (how you move), strength, and jumping ability.

-There are six different training levels with a separate program for each. The levels are set up for an athlete to be able to progress to one of the advanced levels. This is not just a quick fix program. Fast results do happen (check the testimonials page) but the training included in Jump Science 2.0 can take an athlete all the way to an elite level of athleticism over time.

-The programs are 9, 15 or 18 weeks long. The longer programs feature harder training and include rest weeks. The programs are broken up into 3-week segments called training phases. The phases are designed to create smart adjustments to your training as you progress through the program. The exercises and training strategies are switched up to prevent stagnancy and provide new challenges.

-The training consists of a daily routine and three intense workouts per week. This amount of training allows athletes to spend time playing their sport as well.

-If you do not have time to complete the whole program, you can still benefit greatly from just part of it. It is not uncommon for athletes to jump 3 inches higher after the first 3 weeks of training.

Jump Science 2.0 is thorough and comprehensive. It addresses all the physical qualities that contribute to athleticism, which are skill, flexibility, mechanics, strength, explosiveness, and bounce. The workouts include jumping, sprinting, various plyometrics, strength training, and some hybrid exercises. Warmup, stretching, and some other things to include in your training are also covered.

-Listed with the exercises are sets/reps, recommended weights, rest periods, and some other details such as when to add weight or how high of a box to use.

-The program is centered around the vertical jump, but it is designed to improve all-around athleticism. Speed, acceleration, quickness, any movement that is practiced regularly can be improved along with jumping ability.

The improvements gained from this training are long-lasting. You can do this training in the off-season, and it will continue to benefit your athleticism for the entire competitive season. Again, the goal is long-term progress.

-Jump Science 2.0 features new stretching videos and a lot of new exercise videos. For the original program, all but five of the stretching and exercise videos are public on youtube. Many of those have been replaced in Jump Science 2.0, and only a couple of the new videos are public on youtube.

-The price for the instructions, the athlete evaluation, all the programs, all the stretching and exercise videos, and the bonuses is $39.99. To be honest, this product is worth far more than that. This is some seriously high quality information, training programs, and videos. It is without a doubt the best jump training on the internet. $39.99 is a STEAL!

I hate sales pages, so I’m not going to spend time trying to convince you that this training will deliver “insane results in only a couple of weeks!” Honestly, training athleticism does not have to be complicated. Nobody really has any “vertical jump secrets” or “revolutionary formulas.” Those are just claims made to convince people that a product is worth their hard-earned money.

A solid training program is not fancy. It is simply based on good knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics, as well as knowledge and experience in various training methods. It also must address the individual abilities of the athlete. The training in Jump Science 2.0 is not crazy or bizarre. In fact it’s quite simple in some ways. For example, improving functional strength is a huge component of sports training. That is not a secret. As one might expect, the strength training in the program is targeted toward improving functional strength. That’s basic logic, right?

But for some reason a lot of coaches and a lot of training programs lose sight of the basic goal of making athletes stronger. People use weight lifting to condition athletes, or to mimic sports movements, or to work on balance, or (this one drove me crazy when I heard it) to teach athletes to move with different centers of mass. C’mon people! This is just one example of a way in which training programs can lose their effectiveness.

The evaluation process in Jump Science 2.0 identifies the needs of an athlete and the training directly targets those needs. If you need to get stronger, you lift hard. If you need to get more flexible, you stretch every day. No effort is wasted on exercises that just look cool or are really fancy. No effort is wasted training skills that don’t matter. No effort is wasted on stuff that kinda trains this and kinda trains that. No effort is wasted on just getting you really tired. There is no nonsense involved. The training methods target, in the best way possible, the specific abilities that contribute to athleticism. That is what makes it effective.
