Not sure if any brother at adarq joined the web session by Jacob; it was Jackwood who notified me by his email-listing.

The whole sharing is nearly 1.5 hours long,  and I did wrote down some key point which I personally find interesting:


- Important to stretch the shoulder,  He suggest trainer to stretch the shoulder joint, so that arm swing can go back further and swing up harder.  Also try to elongate the arm by extending it upward.  An inch is a inch.

- Doing plyometric movement in between set of heavy explosive lifting. Jacob emphasis on adding in 1 or 2 reps of depth jump kind of exercise in between set of heavy lift (squat/deadlift) to keep the CNS in firing mode.

- Review your own jump pattern via video and identified your best Joint angle/range during a jump,  and adopt that angle in your squat.  In other words, no need to do parallel or ATF squat if following his Jumpmanual  routine.  (he insure us that ATG or parallel in useful in other expect, but not for his routine.

Those are the 3 key messages which is new or I had lost focus on.  Not sure what you guys think.

So if my one-leg jump has a knee bend of ~20 degrees, I should only train with 1/8 squats?! Great!

While he is talking about that Joint bend concept., he was referring 2 leg jumping, thanks for pointing that out.

He also point out how important it is to take A LONG step follow  by a short step for  a single jumper.

as for 2 leg jumper.. just take a LONG last step.

I think that is the key here. I didn't watch the thing but i guess it is some sort-time peaking phase. Lance suggested the same for partials, pick a depth just a couple of inches below your jump plant depth.

+1 anyway.

To me, the "no need to do parallel or ATG squats if following JumpManual" sounds like "don't worry guys, if you buy my program you don't need to worry about doing full squats, you know, the squats you actually hate to do".

He did spend like 10 min or so... marketing himself, and another 10 min or so selling is product.

beside that.. I still think Jacob is a nice guy trying to help.

85% of the audience does not have 30inch vert though...

only 15% do...

I did wake up at 7:30 am.. trying to get into his session in USA time.... so glade that the time is not wasted.
