Are you a basketball player who can’t dunk the ball? Or who can just barely dunk? Would you take an 8-week program that cost $67 that resulted in increasing your vertical leap by 9 – 15 inches? This program can be done without using weights or a gym. It uses vert shock exercises of a special muscle group to help accomplish the goal. The program is called Vert Shock.
There are 1 vert shock reviews that are worth checking out here, The review site suggest the program can do for you what it claims to do. More vert shock reviews, including a number of videos, can be found on this site.
The approach of the Vert Shock program to increasing your vertical leap makes sense. It has you doing special training from 30 to 40 minutes a day 3 or 4 days a week. This goes on for 8 weeks to increase your jumping and dunking ability. It may also be true that the program teaches us to use both legs in jumping. Two legs are stronger than one.
Another thing that makes sense is to train unique muscles that can help us jump higher. In our normal workout routines we do things like squats, deadlifts, calf raises, and other exercises. These muscles help us to lift weights, but not necessarily do jumps. Vert shock exercises focus on those specific muscles which can help us jump higher.
The person who originally found the special muscle group is a researcher who helped train high jumpers in Russia. He helped them prepare for the Olympics during the 1960’s and 1970’s. The special muscles found by him have now been named to be “elastic” fibers. This muscle group is not specifically addressed when we do normal weight training. Vert Shock focuses on training this special group of muscles, which is largely how the increase in vertical jump is achieved.
There are 3 stages in the Vert Shock program:
- Stage 1 – 30 minutes per day for 4 days per week – this is pre-shock – prepare the elastic muscles and the body to do work.
- Stage 2 – 40 minutes per day for 3 days per week – shock the elastic muscles with work – do explosive jumps.
- Stage 3 – 30 minutes per day for 4 days per week – post-shock of the body; do more explosive jumps.
Vert Shock was developed by Adam Folker. who played college basketball at U.C. Irvine in California, and then went on to play professional basketball. He could not dunk the ball when he was 14 years old and was 6′ 4″ tall. That is when the desire to learn how to jump came to him. He next discovered the elastic muscle group, which he physically developed and which helped him dunk impressively. Adam feels this muscle development helped him play at a higher level of basketball throughout college and the pros.
Adam took 5 years to develop the Vert Shock program presently being offered
