a VJ program or should i just make up my own?

Hi, would it be better for someone like me (who does not have much knowledge on muscle / strength training)
to just use a program or just follow simple workout routine to increase my vert? For example, 5x8 squats, 5x8 cleans, 3x20 calf raises on day A, etc etc..
Also, if i just follow my own workouts, where could i get information of muscle training and strength gains? (Not the ones that cost money)
Any tips and advices would be appreciated.

Thanks!

For you I think Kelly Baggett's Vertical Jump Bible (VJB) would be great. Explains a lot of the basic stuff you probably need to learn to eventually make your own workouts. Check it out:
