One of the earliest books that contains effective workouts to increase vertical jump was the Vertical Jump Bible. It focuses on weight training, specifically increasing your squat capacity to improve your speed as well as jump height. The contents in the manual work very well and the author, Kelly Baggett, goes through both the science and facts behind each of the different training methodologies and factors to get results. For me, the heavy focus on increasing your squat weight to get power and the large amount of workout routines and exercises are two reasons why I prefer other more efficient training programs, namely the Vert Shock System and also the Jump Manual. For basketball and volleyball players, or anyone who plans on doing a lot of jumping in their sport, you know that adding weight, even muscle can be problematic to the knees, back and ankles over the long run.
