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.

The most critical aspect of jump training is simply practicing jumping. But just jumping does not maximize all physical abilities and does not develop a balanced, resilient athlete. As a compliment to jumping, you want to use training that directly targets stability, strength, explosiveness, tendon health, and elasticity.

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

This can be done by writing individual programs for each athlete. I have done this successfully, but there is a pretty low limit on the number of people I can help at a given time. I have always had a desire to educate people and simplify training so that anyone can successfully train themselves. What I began doing in my early years as a trainer is writing programs for different types of athletes and trying to find a way to classify people and direct each athlete to the appropriate training. After much trial and error, writing, rewriting, experimentation, and tweaking, I developed a method 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 method and those programs evolved into the Jump Science System.

If you are willing to work hard to become a great athlete, but need guidance on what exactly to do, the Jump Science system 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…

-The Jump Science System uses a simple evaluation that classifies athletes into different levels based on mobility, stability, 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 quick fix training. Fast results do happen (check the testimonials page) but long term progress is the ultimate goal.

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

Jump Science programs are thorough and comprehensive.They address all the physical qualities that contribute to athleticism, which are skill, flexibility, mechanics, strength, explosiveness, and elasticity. The workouts include jumping, sprinting, various plyometrics, strength training, and some hybrid exercises. Warmup, stretching, and therapeutic exercises are also included.

-The programs are centered around the vertical jump, but they are designed to improve all-around athleticism. Short sprint speed and agility should definitely improve with this training. It is not made specifically for max velocity, but it would be great off-season training for a track athlete.

-Instructional videos for each exercise and stretch are included.

-The price for all this is $37 one time. It is not a monthly payment. To be honest, this product is worth far more than that. This is some seriously high quality information, training programs, and videos.$37 is a STEAL!

More Info

-The training levels vary in length from 9-18 weeks. Each level is designed to be repeatable or lead into another level.

-If you do not have time to complete an entire level 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. There is also an in-season training template for those busy sports seasons.

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

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.” Those are just claims made to convince people that a product is worth their 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 the Jump Science Programs 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 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.
