So the question today is more of a comment and a question, sometimes we get people who ask us, will vertical jump training also increase my quickness or my sprinting spree? Or we get some people like this guy, who commented on YouTube said, “I have noticed…blah blah”…basically saying, “the Jump Manual didn’t for me, help on quickness as well as my vertical leap”, it’s pretty long so I’m not going to read the whole thing, but I will post it in the comments.
