The Truth About Jumping

By Trajko Dangov

Hello basketball player,

Let me introduce to you myself. My name is Trajko Dangov
and I'm constantly trying to come up with more and more
effective exercises that will improve your vertical. I have
pretty much the same background as you have. For 5 years I've
been struggling to improve my vertical. I have personally
tried and used number of different exercises and to be honest
with you, 95% of them were garbage. I did find however, certain
exercises that really had an impact on my jumping. I've spent
many many hours researching on the internet about "how did the
basketball pros develop their vertical game".

Every once in a while, a friend of mine comes to me and says
something like: "I really want to jump 10 inches higher,
is there any way I can absolutely maximize my vertical for
let's say 2 months?" And you know what? The funny thing is, I
usually say "yes".

There are things you can do that are at your disposal already.
There are things you can start doing from today and within 2
months you can see yourself jumping higher than you ever
thought possible. That my friend, is the truth. The problem
is, you might ask, what is it that I can do? Okay, let's start
with one of the effective ways you can do everyday that will
guarantee you amazing results.

play basketball everyday
spend 45 minutes a day with your jump rope
make 50 "explosions" (jump as high as you can by bringing your
knees to your chest) everyday
find a stable box or a bench or anything and jump on it and
then jump from it. This completes one repetition. Do 30
repetitions every second day.
do 100 calf raises (stand straight with both legs together and
the raise your heel off the ground so you are on your tippy-
toes. Then lower heels onto the ground again) everyday after
you finish playing basketball.

Maintain this working attitude for 50 days. Good! I bet you
thought it was going to be work:))

Well think about it, what was the thing, Michael Jordan or Vince
Carter or so many others high-flying sky-walkers did, that
helped them bring their vertical game to that amazing level.
What was it, that made Dominique Wilkins make those windmills
or 360 spins so fast? Weren't you just nervous in a way, from
the thought that you can't possibly do that and you thought
you'd give just about anything to be able to do that, so that
you can impress your friends maybe with your astonishing
dunks. Sounds familiar?

Well here are some of the things I heard that Michael Jordan
was doing to develop his vertical leap that he had at his best
years of playing:

He spent 2 hours a day, playing with weights on his legs. Not
to mention the countless hours he spent on the court doing
dunks or trying to perform dunks that he knew back then he
wasn't capable of. Or how about to consider how many times he
spent jumping under the rim just grabbing those rebounds.
Isn't it amazing to think how many pounds of sweat he has
"drained" from his tireless body. And this is just an example.

The point is, every player that you can think of has dedicated
great deal of time jumping and jumping and jumping. Why?
Probably because he was inspired by someone just like you are
right know. And what's more important, he was d-e-t-e-r-m-i-n-

There are of course programs out there selling on the internet
which are quite effective that will take you by the hand and
show you the "short-cut".

The thing, it ain't easy man, it can get pretty ugly but you
can't possibly improve your vertical game just spending 20-30
minutes a day doing some simple and easy exercises.

Unfortunately you'll find dozens of basketball programs out
there. And most of them are garbage. They are expensive and
they are offering nothing more than a bunch of exercises that
will "sky-rocket" your vertical leap for a very short time. You
have to realize, my friend, that you have to work. There is no
other way. You'll probably also heard of those pills some
people sell or some liquids or many many other stuff. Don't,
under any circumstance use them because they are not tested
and none of the NBA players are using them. They
are medically untested and they can be very harmful.

You and I both know what it takes.

I have come up with 11 tested and proven exercises and I'm not
going to lie to you. They do require work but at least I can
assure you they are for real. If you are interested you
can check them out at:

Or, you can just take a look at my website and if you don't like
what I like to offer, you can email me at
at any time. I'll gladly answer any question you might have. Or if
you have a comment about something or suggestion I'd love to hear it.
