Jacob Hiller Vertical Jump: Watch Coach Hiller Dunk Over 4 People


After publishing my Jump Manual review, I started getting lots of question from people asking me how the manual works and if Jacob Hiller’s program is really legit and worthy.

Therefore, I decided to tell you my story and describe to you the process I went through using it.

But before that, here’s some raw footage of Coach Hiller doing his thing, basically abusing the rim.

As you can see, the guy not only talks the talk, but he actually walks the talk too, and this is all a result of the training practices he preaches inside The Jump Manual.

With that out of the way, let me break down how the 12-week program has went for me.

My Story

One of the things I always struggled with when playing basketball is my height.

At 6 feet, which is not really tall for basketball, I was having a hard time competing with guys taller than me.

By the time I understood the importance of height and its impact in basketball it was already too late, I was 20+ and I had already finished growing (physically).

Even when I played with guys which were approximately my height, I couldn’t say I was anything special.

Getting stuck at 6 feet and playing against guys who average 4-5 inches taller than you sucks. Whenever I played with taller guys, I felt intimidated and insecure, I was afraid to make a move or shoot the ball because I could easily be blocked.

I figured I’m on a serious disadvantage here and I knew something had to be done, so I decided to use the only weapon against height I’ve got left, that is to increase my vertical.

And so, my quest for increasing my vertical was born.

Challenge accepted

I spoke to people about it, many were saying that jumping higher is all genetics and there’s not much to do about it.

Some people were saying I just need to spend time in the gym and lift heavy weights.

Some were saying that I need to jump thousands of times every day… and on and on it went.

As a matter of fact, I tried some of these methods, and I did gain a little bit of increase in my vertical, but it was minimal and I didn’t feel like I was getting somewhere.

Then I started researching online for professional advice. The problem is, there’s so much false information from inexperienced coaches and trainers, and bad advice from old programs that don’t fit today’s standards.

After a while I stumbles upon The Jump Manual, it looked promising and it didn’t take long for me to decide that I’m gonna try it.

I’m not an easy guy to convince, but the program was guaranteeing I will gain 10 inches or get my money back, so I figured I’ve got nothing to lose here and went on and purchased it.

Let The Training Begin…

Why not?!

When I started the program I was surprised because the exercises and the workouts themselves were very different from what I was used to.

It was very hard at the beginning and I was a bit discouraged because I’ve never seen anyone train with these methods before.

I started to doubt a little in the program’s methodology, but luckily it didn’t take long for the results to come.

In just two weeks I increased two inches in my vertical, and all the doubts I had about this program up until that moment, disappeared.

Suddenly I was able to grab the rim.

At that moment I knew this program was the real deal.

The First Meeting with A 10 Foot Rim

Over time, I gradually added more inches to my vertical, and then what I wished for has finally happened… I DUNKED THE BASKETBALL! Do you realize?! MY FIRST DUNK EVER!


At 30 years old I was dunking for the first time in my life, it was kind of a lame dunk actually where the ball would just barely go through the rim, and I had many failed attempts too. Nevertheless, it was still a dunk.

Words cannot describe how I felt at that moment, it was sensational! I was so excited and pumped up, I felt so powerful at that moment like there’s nothing in the world that could stop me.

I felt like I was reborn. it was amazing, I’ll never forget that day.

After my “little” experience of meeting with the rim, I was so motivated and enthusiastic I switched to a high gear. I began to work even harder and more intensely with the program.

All of a sudden it was not so rare to see me dunk, I started dunking more frequently. First it was either one-handed, then it was also two-handed dunks.

I started asking myself if I could also replicate these dunks while in a game. This is due the fact that I stopped playing basketball at some point because the program demanded it, hence this question has started to bother me.

So after roughly three months on the program I went to play with my friends. This was the first time I was going to play after a few months break.

I haven’t told anyone I was working on my vertical, so it was kind of a secret.

Even though no one expected anything from me, I was very nervous because it’s been a couple months since the last time I played, and I wanted to see if I can recreate what I was doing on practice to a real time game, therefore this was the moment of truth for me.

So we started playing, I got warm, started taking some rebounds and made a few moves, and then guess what happened…



You should have seen their faces when it happened. They were shocked! They were absolutely stunned! And me, I just couldn’t stop smiling :)

Everybody came to me patting on my back starting to ask question, “how did you do this?” “since when can you dunk?“. They’ve never see me dunk before, for all they could remember I was barely reaching the rim.

Now all of a sudden I’m dunking on their face, they just couldn’t believe it.

Anyway I just wanted to keep playing to show them more, so I promised to tell them what I was doing after we finish the game.

So we kept playing and I had a few more dunks that got everyone’s attention, my teammates passed me the ball so many times as if I was the leader on the team, I was getting a lot more rebounds and I blocked many shots as well. My friends were super ecstatic about it.

Overall I felt like I dominated the game with my new found ability to jump high, and at that night, my team haven’t lost one game. My friends are now looking at me very differently with much more respect and appreciation to my game.

Since then, I managed to increase my vertical some more.

I also introduced the manual to my friends and they started to increase their vertical as well.

Though I’m not sure if it was the best idea to tell them my secret, because now I might get dunked in the face too. But you know what, it just gives me more motivation to keep working harder and increase my vertical even further.

One thing I gotta say to you though, this program is not easy and it’ll take quite some time & effort on your part. But if you really want to jump higher and dunk, then that shouldn’t be a problem.

Wrap Up

To wrap things up, I think the Jump Manual has proven itself.

So far, I improved my vertical by more than 10 inches, so it passed the test. This program will really change the way you trained until today. Checkout my results video to see how effective it is.

So, does the Jump Manual work? Definitely.

It has worked for me, and as long as you don’t have any acute problem that prevents you from jumping, it’ll work for you too. I sincerely recommend each and every one who seeks to increase his vertical to invest in this program and give it a shot.

  1. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend
    who had been conducting a little research on jumping.
    And he actually bought me breakfast due to the fact that I found it for him…
    lol… Thanks for the meal!!

    But seriously now, thanks for spending some time to share your experience with the program.

    • Hello my name is Eric Martin and I’m 51 years old at one time I could dunk but now that I’m older I can barley touch the net is it possible for some one my age to regain some of my jumping ability again and I’m 6feet also…let me know…Eric

      • Hey Eric, I haven’t heard of anyone’s experience with the program at that age, the oldest guy I know who did it was 42, and he gained 7 inches from it.
        But age is really not the determining factor, it’s how healthy you are and your condition that will determine how the training will affect you.

        Are you currently engaging in some form of training, are you still playing ball?

  2. Enjoyed reading this post Jesse!

    BTW, It is also recommended to have a sound sleep of 8 hours.
    As most people know, the bones of people stop developing when they reach the age of 18.
    If you’re tall then it’s gonna be easier to dunk so make sure you get enough sleep too.

  3. I’m doing the jump program right now but at the rate I’m going there’s no way i will increase by ten inches and I go all out when I do it any advice?

    • Hey David,
      Few questions:
      1) How long have you been doing it?
      2) How many inches have you gained so far?
      3) Are you following the program exactly?
      4) Are you incorporating other routines besides the program?

    • You mean how long it takes to get access?! You should get login details immediately after you buy it. If you mean how long the program is then it’s 3 months.

  4. Did you do the off day exercises? I find myself always forgetting to do those. Do you think they hold a big part in gains? Thx

    • Yes. These exercises alone won’t affect your vertical directly, but they’re super important to for inducing your recovery and increasing blood flow to the muscles. Don’t underestimate those.

  5. hi jesse, I was really inspired by your story, I am only 5ft 4 at age 25 and have doubts as to whether it will work for me as well, what are your thoughts?

    • Anyone, regardless of their height, can increase their vertical jump and benefit from it.

      If you’re 5’4 then maybe you won’t be able to dunk, but the impact of an increased vertical jump on your game will be enormous.
      Just look at players like Nate Robinson, although they’re only 5’9, it did not prevent them from developing a killer vert that transformed their game and opened up so many options for them on the court.
      I would go even further by saying that this is even more important for small players, as they’re already in a disadvantage point and therefore increasing their vert and working on their athleticism would offset that gap.

      So don’t be discourage by your height or by the thought of whether you’ll be/won’t be able to dunk, think what you can do to improve your overall game and go for it.

  6. Hey Jesse. you seem like a really nice guy. Im 14 and 6 foot. I want to be able to dunk. I can almost touch the bottom of the ring hinge but want to dunk. Please send some quotes. Thanks man.
