The Jump Manual covers every aspect of vertical jump training. There are upper body exercises included that aid in creating a more explosive vertical, but we currently do not offer an upper body routine. An upper body routine should be tailored to your specific goals in strength, explosive ability, and mass gains.
For integrating the program with your existing exercises keep this in mind:
Tips for Lifting upper body:
It is fine to lift upper body 2X week. The day after or the day before major leg days are best. You don’t want add extra days to your leg days because your body may be depleted of energy sources to begin a proper recovery. The Jump Manual, includes a fairly light upper and core day and you may add whichever exercises you want. Unless you are getting MASSIVE the increases in strength will not hinder your vertical. I would recommend using the “strength and explosion sets” as a guideline for your upper body and core exercises as well.
If you are a coaching client we provide additional coaching options for upper body training such as creating a customized routing, and/or analyzing your current training regime and integrating it with Jump Manual training.
