The man behind VerticalJumping.com is well known performance coach Jack Woodrup. Hi, that's me.
Anyone who has investigated the available research and literature on vertical jump training will soon realize that there is not only a massive amount of information available, but much of it is conflicting with other sources, just plain wrong, or sadly as is most often the case - pure marketing lies.
By building Verticaljumping.com I hoped to educate athletes and coaches about what was really possible, what the correct training principles are, and to help people avoid the many scams that surround the vertical jump industry.
During my own research into the subject I have spent thousands of dollars on books, reports, jump training equipment, programs, and spent countless hours with both myself and other athletes to determine what works and what doesn't. I was fortunate enough to have the means and motivation to spend this time and money but I know that a lot of people, particularly students and recreational athletes don't have that same advantage. As such, this site was created.
Although it isn't the main focus of my own athletic training, I still do quite a lot of speed and power training and even now in my early 40's I maintain a 38 inch running vertical jump.
I wish you all the best in your training. If you have any questions please feel free to drop me an email via the 'Contact Us' page.
