“I’ve gained about 13-14 inches… now I’m at 42″…”
(when I started) I definitely couldn’t dunk… It didn’t take very long at all,
I was seeing some gains pretty quick… (My freshman year) I was the only one
in the entire school who can dunk. And (the seniors) were pretty jealous. I’ve
gained 13 to 14 inches. I measured my vertical in 8th grade and it was about
29 inches and now I’m at 42 inches. Just trust the program and follow it as
closely as possible.” – Ben Linnel

As a professional beach volleyball player, I was looking for an edge going into my 9th vertical jumpseason on the AVP tour. I am so thankful I found the Jump Manual! After two months on the program, my legs are stronger than they have been in years and my knees feel great! I’m jumping higher, hitting harder, and stuffing balls at the net. I’d recommend this program to anyone looking to take their game to the next level.

vertical jumpThere are 9 aspects involved in maximizing your vertical jump. When each of these qualities is increased there is a synergistic effect creating maximum explosion.

In Chapter 1 we go over these 9 essential variables of explosiveness… Each of these need to work together to create explosion and upward propulsion.

In Chapter 2, you’ll discover the foundations of my Neurological Recruitment Principle(TM)… This includes the exact interval and strategy for how to train your nervous system to recruit all your available muscle fibers, and create the “muscle memory” needed to develop natural jumping explosion…

Muscle gains do NOT happen during training. Muscle gains are INITIATED during a training session, however, the actual gains in strength take place during proper recovery…

In Chapter 4 you’ll find the critical elements of eating for maximum gains. I also include a basic nutrition plan that anyone can follow without needing to change their entire lifestyle to incorporate it…

Chapter 7 is going to show you the ultimate pre-workout warm-up that will help you prevent injury and increase performance during your workouts…vertical jump

This is VERY important… Many athletes don’t realize that there are muscles that aren’t used when jumping that will cause “resistance” and decrease your jumping ability. I’ll show you exactly how to avoid that.

Chapter 8 is my Max Explosion Workout. This is the exact workout, in combination with other techniques in the manual, that countless athletes have used to gain 10-20″ on their vertical jump…

This is the most comprehensive approach available and it includes 3 exercises that you won’t find any place else. I’m going to show you exactly how & when to do them…

You’ll also have access to our workout tracking sheets so you can get a clear picture of your progress…

The importance of tracking progress cannot be overstated… Any athlete who is serious about reaching their potential MUST be tracking their workout and athletic development…


I used to be a basketball fan and player.To be able to just touch the rim of the basketball goal was a thrill.  I had read a book titled, “The City Game” by author Pete Axthelm.  To this day I can still remember his description of a Harlem Rucker Tournament sensation named Earl “The Goat” Manigault.  Guess what his claim to fame was . . .

. . . an amazing ability to jump so high, he could touch the top of the basketball goal!

There is a reason one of the squads for the Boost Mobile Elite 24 is named in his honor: “The Goat” is arguably the most well known streetball legend of all-time. There is some question how much pro potential the 6-foot-1 jumping jack had, but he was all-city at Franklin before moving on to Laurinburg Institute in North Carolina. Manigault had offers from all over the country, but it never worked out for him. He’s so revered, the playground at 99th and Amsterdam, in New York, is named Goat Park.

Those were the days of Wilt “The Stilt” Chamberlain, Connie “The Hawk” Hawkins and Oscar “The Big O” Robertson, while taking a stroll going down NBA memory lane. Oscar Robertson was proclaimed Mister Basketball and served as inspiration for the youth of America. He was the standard all basketball players were measured by.

Don Cheadle starred as “The Goat” several years ago,in a movie about Earl.
