Who should be interested to jump higher?

• All those interested in basketball workouts and basketball drills

• All those who wants lo learn how to jump higher fast

I have played basketball for only a few months when I was child (although my father and my uncle were professional basketball players), but as a passionate practitioner of martial arts I’m very interested in learning how to jump higher

Perhaps now you are thinking that there are already so many basketball training programs, and it’s right. Indeed I would never have presented one of the many generic training program for basketball skills. But what I really appreciate about Vert Shock is its very specific focus: it’s a specific workout created to jump higher.

Maybe now you’re thinking that you’ve never been able to do dunks or that in many years of training you’ve never jumped higher than a few inches but jumping is a skill and like any skill can be improved with specific training.
After all, if you want to jump higher you must train to jump higher!

And Vert Shock was created exactly to teach you how to jump higher, so you won’t waste your time with exercises that are not strictly related to the jump skill. Each routine is short (about 15 minutes) but very intense and Adam Folker recommends that you train every day to be able to achieve your goal (jump higher fast) in just 8 weeks.


In his website ( you can read:

” My name is Adam Folker and I am a professional basketball player. I made it to the professional level through a relentless work ethic and busting my ass day in and day out. The first time I measured my vertical jump it was 14 inches…

…Nothing to shoot a Youtube video about.

But by the time I graduated high school it was 32 inches and I was dunking in every game I played. I led the nation in scoring, earned a Division 1 full scholarship to the University of California Irvine, and have worked with some of the best trainers in the world.

My good friend Justin ‘Jus Fly’ Darlington also uses these ‘Vert Shock’ secrets every day. Not only has he been named the #1 dunker in the world multiple times, he’s alsotrained NBA players to dunk, has won more dunk contests you can count, holds high jump records, and even came close to making the Olympics for high jump.
Justin can jump an insane 50.1 inches and invented his infamous dunk underneath BOTH legs.”

Vert Shock training program is split into 3 phases:

1. Pre-Shock Phase:
This first phase lasts seven days, after which your vertical jump will increase by 3 — 5 inches. This phase is called ‘Pre-Shock’ phase because it’s designed to get your body ready for what’s to come.

2. Shock Phase:
This is the most important phase of Vert Shock training program. It lasts 6 weeks during which you will do a lot of jumping exercises. This is the main part of the program and is where your nervous system is ‘shocked’ into leaping higher than all your friends thought possible

3. Post-Shock Phase:
This phase covers the last week of your training. This is a full week where everything your body ‘learned’ in the previous phases becomes cemented in your muscle memory.

So after 8 weeks and going through all 3 phases of the Vert Shock Program you will have added 9 — 15 inches to your vertical jump.

In his website ( Adam Folker makes a list of the Vert shock’s benefits:
