VERTICAL JUMP PROTOCOL: METHODS

  • 1

    CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM WARM-UP

    Every day before training, performing POWERFUL movements (Med Ball Throws, Jumps, Sprints, etc.) will increase your explosive performance during training

  • 3

    TRAIN THE UPPER BODY

    Arm swing is a major contributor to the vertical jump, use French Contrast to optimize all aspects of upper body POWER

  • 5

    IMPROVE ANKLE MOBILITY

    Poor ankle dorsiflexion and big toe strength can severely inhibit your explosiveness

  • 7

    STRENGTHEN THE HIPS

    Hip Thrusts, Split Squats, and Trap Bar Deadlifts are essentials to increase hip-dominant jumping strength

  • 9

    BAND-RESISTED SQUATTING

    The vertical jump requires acceleration all the way through toe-off, heavy lifting doesn't - unless you use band-resistance

  • 2

    FRENCH CONTRAST METHOD

    The vertical jump is a POWER movement, which means you require both FORCE and VELOCITY. French Contrast enhances all aspects of POWER.

  • 4

    CONCENTRIC-ONLY

    Upwards-only lifting involves higher rate coding, better motor unit recruitment, and ultimately, better gains in explosive strength

  • 6

    JUMP WITH THE HIPS

    Better jumpers use a more hip-dominant strategy to achieve higher heights than worse jumpers

  • 8

    OFF-DAY POTENTIATION

    Performing 5 sets of 4 reps of weighted jumps has been shown to increase vertical jump ~5% for the next day

  • 10

    MAXIMAL ISOMETRIC HOLDS

    Jumping and lifting can leave you with weak links, isolate these positions and strengthen them to the highest degree with isometrics

I believe Jake’s vertical jump program is one of the best out there, it has all the scientific back up, and it is 100% reliable.  This guy puts hours of work on everything he does and just looking at him you can see he obtains the best results.  I guarantee you, that his program will get you to the level you are trying to get.

I have been working on my vertical jump for a little over a year now. I have tried many training methods and programs and I can say Jake’s Vertical Jump Protocol has been amazing. My explosiveness has improved as well as my overall strength. The program is not just useful for 5 weeks, but truly explains how to set up training for long term development. The program is clear and scientifically backed up. Jake has also been extremely responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. Definitely give this a shot if you are serious about improving your vertical jump and explosive power!
