Some of you may have noticed that I have switched the positions of my top 2 vertical jump programs. Originally, the Vertical Jump Bible was ranked #1 and The Jump Manual was #2. However, I have recently decided to switch The Jump Manual to the #1 position for a few reasons.
First, some of the visitors to this site have told me that the Vertical Jump Bible was a bit difficult to follow since they were novice athletes and had very little training experience. This was especially due to the fact that the program does not have video explanations of each exercise and training activity. Trying to figure out how to do an exercise just from some text and one picture can be a bit difficult, especially if you’re new to the whole jump training thing.
Second, the Vertical Jump Bible does not offer the option of one-on-one support. Once again, this can cause a big problem for novice athletes who might need a little help when they first get started with their training. It’s always nice to have a helping hand around when you need it.
And finally, I like the fact that The Jump Manual offers a specific satisfaction guarantee. What I mean by specific is that the author, Jacob Hiller, says he’ll guarantee 10 inches in 6 weeks or your money back. Now this is a pretty crazy guarantee in my eyes since it would be awesome just to gain 5 inches in that time…but it’s nice to have concrete numbers to work with when it comes to a guarantee.
The first two problems that I mentioned about the Jump Bible (lack of video and one-on-one support) are taken care of by The Jump Manual. You must understand that I am in no way saying that the Jump Bible is an inferior program. They both provide superb training information and give excellent results. What I am trying to say is that The Jump Manual offers some extra benefits that can really help make it easy for athletes to understand exactly what they need to do in order to jump higher, especially the novice athletes. I feel that this is a big benefit over the Jump Bible.
Anyway, go ahead and have a look at both The Jump Manual and The Vertical Jump Bible and see what fits you best. And please let me know how your training is coming along by sending me a message. To do this, go to the “About” page and use the contact form at the bottom.
