I hope you have found a wealth of information on how to improve your vertical jump and that you have began to implement some of those ideas. I know they work, and I have used them in countless occasions to train athletes to increase their vertical jump significantly. If you are here at the blog page I warn you that this is where I throw my sometimes unfinished ideas. We always try and stay on the cutting edge of vertical jump training technology without drifting off into the lands of hocus pocus vertical jump training like so many other sites I have visited. I will start this page off by posting a brief interview series. It is rather lengthy but for those of you who have asked how the Jump Manual originated I thought it might be interesting to you. I have been at vertical jump training for a very very long time. I would call it an obsession I have had for some time now. If only I would have had the information that is currently available to you at the outset of my vertical jump training adventure. It is simply incredible the difference that correct training will make in muscular increase and vertical jump increase. Let me explain. In high school I was like so many other who wanted to dunk. It happens to be my personality to latch onto things that i want to accomplish almost to a fanatic degree. I first tried Air Alert after seeing the testimonials in a magazine. I was stoked, I truly felt that this would take my vertical jump to the level I needed it to be. I really bought into the vertical jump testimonials that all the others were talking about. So I bought the program and received my red book which i cherished and read like the bible. I got all the recommendations of the program and did the program to a T. For the entire summer. Did I increase vertical jump? Perhaps 3 inches. Which is something, but left me disappointed and forlorn. I had put my energy and my entire life into that program. What else does a high school kid have to do? Basketball, and dunking, was my religion at that age. I was disappointed oh yes I was. But, I was not even close to give up. I had vowed not to give up. I didn’t know anyone else pursuing vertical jump training to the degree that I was. (FYI it is nice to see that there are so many others like us out there.) So I had to regroup. Air Alert did not deliver on its promises. Of course now I know why Air Alert didn’t work. It simply is not an effective or well rounded system. I used to not want to make any enemies but I feel that they have a responsibility as a company to deliver a much more rounded and effective vertical jump training product. I also feel that it is my responsibility to let others know that it is a waste of time, enthusiasm, and energy. The worst part is that when it doesn’t work for some people they give up. It’s too bad really, and it doesn’t only happen with vertical jump training, it happens with many things, for there are imposters in anything. It is sad… I am going to go on a bit of a tangent here so if you want to skip my little tangent please go to the next paragraph:) If any of you have trained and not got the results DO NOT GIVE UP, I am not saying that in some type of cheesy motivational way. I am saying that in a very real way. Because I know that we have to have balance in our life and know when we have taken an endeavor too far and we must turn back. Unfortunately people do that far far far too quickly to even start tasting of the good fruits. I see it in vertical jump training. I see it in language learning (another passion of mine.) I see it in business, marketing, and sales (I love business :). People must learn to abandon endeavors that are bound to be fruitless, but we typically we just give up way too early. Well, it’s getting way too late here, and I am getting married tomorrow so it’s time to hang up. This of course is not the end of my saga. Next I am going to talk about why Air Alert failed to produce results and post a video that I recently posted on MySpace that will hopefully explain better than my writing. Then I will go into my next endeavor for increasing my vertical jump. The strength boots. So before I go into an explanation of my next major vertical jump program I want to justify again why Air Alert is simply not a program fit for incredible vertical jump increases. First check this out: Air Alert claims they utilize a technique for vertical training called “habitual jump training.” The idea is that many jumps will eventually increase the overall explosion capacity of the individuals vertical. Seems simple enough for a vertical jump training program eh? NO. Repeating an exercise that is only targeting slow twitch muscle fiber will continue only training slow twitch. Yet slow twitch muscle fibers are NOT what you need to succeed at increasing your vertical jump.
