    What is the best plyo program in order to jump higher?

    Hey everyone I am about to start a plyometrics program in order to add as many inches possible to my vertical jump. I am training specifically for basketball and yes as cliche as this sounds I am trying to learn how to dunk. I've played basketball mostly casually for my entire life (never played for a club or high school team, but I did some men's leagues here and there). I'm 22 years old, height of 5'9, and an intermediate strength trained individual at 165 lbs. Yes I know I'm not the tallest person but I've played ball with and seen quite a few people not just dunk but flat out tomahawk slam while only being 5'7-5'10 so I'm not just going to count myself out of the picture. They might have some freakish genetics but hey I might as well have some inspiration right?

    Basically I want to know which of these programs any of you basketball coaches, basketball players or other type of athletes on the forums would recommend (hopefully from personal experience) for me to start basically as a novice with plyometrics and jump training. I know this question has been asked plenty of times on here but most of them are from years back and there are quite a few new programs that have extremely positive testimonials.

    The three programs I am looking to start are:

    1) Vert Shock. This is an 8-week, 70$ program that requires nothing except for something like a bench to jump off of and focuses on quickness and explosiveness in order to improve vertical jump height. From the testimonials this also looks to be the most promising. Most full length written and video testimonials around the web are claiming they easily gained 6-15 inches from the program. Also the website even guarantees users will jump 3-5 inches higher within the first week and 9-15 inches higher by the end of the 8-week program.

    2) Jump Manual. This is a 12-week, 70$ program which does require a gym, and focuses on building a strength base in order to improve vertical jump height. The testimonials have pretty good results as well but I haven't gone too in-depth to see specifics. The website also guarantees users will gain at least 10 inches by the end of the 12-week program.

    3) Vertical Jump Bible. This is a 12-week, and completely free program which has been talked about on numerous occasions even here on the BB forums. It has a mixed approach and the testimonials are fairly good as well. Their is no crazy guarantee but more of a realistic approach with a lot of theory to the text.


    Those were the 3 programs. Please let me know which program you would recommend (hopefully using some personal experience as a basis for your response) that I complete in order to put the most amount of vertical jump in the next 8-12 week time frame. I don't expect magic, but I would want to get the best program out there so that I can work towards my goal.

    Thanks everyone!

    Out of those 3 vert shock would not be the one I would choose I have a review of it here



    Jump Manual is also not a very good program in my opinion although I haven't done the review for it yet. In short I feel it incorrectly uses post activation potentiation

    Jump Bible is a good option, my top 4 would probably be: Jump Bible, Read Triphasic Training (by Cal Dietz) and add some of your own plyometrics after performing the 6 week block of ecc, iso, conc, Mine (comprehensive guide to the VJ, yes im biased towards mine) or read any of Verkhoshanky's texts such as his coaches manual which is a little dumbed down verses supertraining.

    I will be getting a triphasic review up soon and hopefully a log of it as I hopefully will be getting a portable tendo unit to help me get objective results.

    Also if you head over to my site (athletesrehab.com) you can follow my training log too

    I just watched your review and honestly really happy I did. I am also a kinesiology major so it is nice to hear about some theory which was supposed to be in the program which you were looking for (but couldnt find). So if I am trying to increase my vert jump the highest (and hopefully achieve a dunk) then would your absolute top choice for me be the vertical jump bible? Just the very first one that can be pulled up as the first result in a google search? Because I have heard there is a new 2.0 version of it as well.

    Thank you!

    There is more to jumping than plyometrics - I would make sure that whichever program you choose is combined with weight training (specifically squats, and other lower body compound movements).

    As you will see from training videos most big jumpers like Devonte Wilson do heavy squats and squat variations; although he also does jumps with a barbell on his back as well which is not exactly a good idea for most people.

    Honestly for the price of the other programs you could buy triphasic training (ebook, 38), mine (online 30), and the jump bible (free) and have all three which would give you enough reading/listening material for a month. Seeing your a college kid and probably financially strapped I would say go with the jump bible and then branch out a little after doing that program. You will probably get 4-6 inches off the jump bible and then you will have to change methods.

    I see. Well can I ask you what your opinion is on how the testimonials are saying they are gaining 6-15 inches through the Vert Shock program? Do you think these are fake? Because I see this on countless youtube and website reviews which seem to be genuine from kids and adults. Yes I know that theory behind programs is important.. but I am just wondering if the theory behind this program is really that important if the results are just so amazing for it. Like I said I am just trying to gain as much vert as possible in the next 2-3 months. Would you think it is less beneficial for me to do the Vert Shock for the full routine and then branching out to Vertical Jump Bible after?

    It's not science based, it's an inferior program in my opinion, and it is simply a jump circuit. Use your head.

    It won't necessarily help you jump higher, but p90x Plyometrics is taxing and enjoyable workout, as long as you aren't ashamed to jump around your living room in front of your TV. I don't think it builds much muscle, but there's a lot of jumping and you'll know who cardio was when you get done.

    Don’t know if the OP or anyone else is still interested in this, but after reading through this thread, I thought I had to add my 2¢…

    First off, I really don’t get the bashing that Vert Shock has received.

    Now, I understand that BHollandDPT is just trying to promote his own program, and he may have a fair argument for why it’s effective, but saying that Vert Shock is outright not science based or inferior is just blasphemous.

    How do you explain the thousands of success stories that the program has achieved?

    Vert Shock is fairly new, and uses the most advanced jump science among the currently available programs, which is why it’s so effective DESPITE requiring the least amount of time and equipment to achieve results.

    Sure, there’s more than one way to skin a cat, but if you’re a busy high schooler, college student, or even a young adult, spending hours every day in the gym may not be an option.

    With Vert Shock, all you need to do is spend around 45 minutes a day, 4-5 times per week, and start seeing results in as little as a few weeks.

    Personally, I found these comparisons to be very helpful in going over some of the most popular programs and how they differ:
    https://www.basketballworkouttips.co...ining-program/
    https://jumpmanualblog.com/best-vert...ning-programs/

    You’ll find hundreds of people online and offline who will attest to the effectiveness of Vert Shock, so it’s definitely not a scam or a gimmick.

    If you put in the work, you will see results, period.

    And while some of the other programs listed here may also work, they are much harder to complete, and the results that you achieve will be comparable, at best.
