There is a old saying: Citius, Altius, Fortius… which is Latin for: “Faster, Higher, Stronger”… The second of the two is “Higher”… and that’s what the Jump Manual is all about.
If you wanna be a better athlete, a more dominate athlete, and reach your full potential at any level (or go to the next level) you have to be able to perform faster, higher, and stronger than your competition.
I am not usually one to brag on a product, but the “Jump Manual” is sick.
It’s is the absolute best vertical jumping product out.
Getting above the rim, above the net, above the fence, or impressing scouts & spectators can only be done if you have a great vert.
The BIG Secret
If you want to increase your vertical, there is one thing that you must be able to do exceptionally great… have a high contraction speed.
That means that (once you have enough strength to overcome your body weight resistance) you need to be able to contract your muscles at a high rate (NOTE: your body can be "trained" to accomplish both of these).
The faster and stronger your contraction speed the higher that you will be able to jump (i.e. "fast twitch" muscle).
There are a ton of ways to increase your contraction speed (like training your nervous system to react faster). This will have the biggest impact on how high you jump.
That’s what the Jump Manual is all about… teaching you exactly step-by-step how to jump higher & increase your vertical with little known jumping exercises & training that force your body to jump higher.
For example: One of the exercises that you will use is called a 'depth jump'.
Now this exercise is when you jump off of a box, hit the ground, and quickly jump right back up to another box (we used to do these quite a bit for High School & University High Jump Training).
The reason that you do this is to work on, and "train", contraction time... So, it has to be done right and it has to be done on boxes that are the right height for that particular workout (don’t worry Jacob Hiller goes over this in the manual).
He will also teach you why...
... ALSO if you are getting TOO fatigued during your vert jump training then you are doing it wrong, and what you should be feeling instead.
A few more things that Jacob covers beside exactly what to do to increase your vertical by 10″ is: the supplements, diet, & nutrition that help aid your jump training and muscle development (AND why you should NOT be using jump shoes to help - well at least your expectations should be throttled - I made this mistake. They are fun to train in tho... Lol).
A Quick Story – Jump Mania
I am an old fart (Lol..not really, 32) and I am 5′ 10″…and I can wake up in the morning, fresh out of the bed and “kiss them rim”...
I also started playing outdoor 2-on-2 sand volleyball about 4 years ago, and in my first year I went from a BB player to a AA player (high as it goes without going pro) all because of my ability to jump.
I couldn’t “play” when I first started, but I sure could put the ball down whenever my partner had a chance to set me (get the ball high up in the air), so we could always be a threat to score…
...And I made the opposing team try and beat us with place shots because I would take away a lot of killing opportunities because of being above the net (fear of the block) Lol… just kidding, but it’s true though.
So, I don’t care about tooting my own horn, and I don’t want to impress you AT ALL (well maybe a little) 😉 I say that because you can dominate your sport by becoming a better jumper.
The really cool side effect of becoming a better jumper, is that you become quicker, and more explosive all around. It's the same muscle twitch to jump high as it is to be explosive in your other moves involving legs and pushing off.
The game (basketball, volleyball, football, track n field, soccer headers, any move that you need to make explosively) just becomes easier when you can jump, when you have that kind of power in your core that can be activated at anytime… AND all of the tips that helped me to learn to become an explosive athlete... and helped me to jump higher, you can learn in the “Jump Manual”… that’s why I wanted to write this tell you about the Jump Manual and how this little guy was hitting his head on the rim (video).
I think that every athlete should know about it. It cuts right to the chase of how to jump higher, safely too.
You won’t do 1,000 squats in one day (doesn’t’ work).
You won’t do some stupid crazy diet (actually lose inches).
You won’t have to buy $125 jump shoes (I used to love those things, but not what got me there either).
One of my favorite sections about the jump manual is the teaching about supplements, diet, & injuries.
I remember thinking to myself when I read that info that… man I wish I had this back then.
This was stuff that I had to learn through trial & error and the “school of hard knocks”, and University, which cost me my last year of eligibility in college (you don’t wanna learn it the hard way).
Anyhoo, I can go on and on about the Jump Manual, but I will let you decide.
The manual isn’t perfect, but it will give you all the info that you need to jump high, and I totally recommend it (which I don’t do often).
You should watch the new jump video that he made…
Have a great day... Citius, Altius, Fortius

P.S. Once you can jump high, it's not really something that you lose. Really cool.
