Habitual Jump Training™
The Principle Behind Air Alert®
How to jump higher and improve your vertical leap, you ask! Air Alert®: The Complete Vertical Jump Program, Version IV is the answer and has been the answer for over 22 years.
This amazing vertical jump program guarantees you will jump 8 to 14 inches higher based on our unique and proven principle, "Habitual Jump Training" which uses only your body weight paired with the 6 unique jump training exercises specifically designed to attack your legs at different angles isolating the muscles designed especially for jumping. By precisely executing the exercises and by precisely following the 3 day per week workout, your leg muscles develop an unconscious pattern of behavior - a habitual jumping pattern which allows you to effortlessly increase your jumping ability to a level that will absolutely surprise you.
Also referred to as the Kangaroo Effect (see videos in the upper right column), this method of jump training develops instinctual and effortless jumping. You simply won't believe the gains you will achieve over the 15 week workout period and you simply will not believe how little effort you will exert when jumping high. Air Alert® and the Habitual Jump Training model will teach your legs to jump and once they have learned, your legs will respond beyond your belief.
A True Jump Training Program
Air Alert® is a true vertical jump training program designed for athletes who have a serious desire to jump higher. It is used around the globe and it helps thousands of athletes each day become all-around, more successful athletes, and we guarantee it will help you do the same.
A 2 Phase Program
Air Alert®, Version IV is 2-phase system designed to maximize gains over 2 sessions.
Phase I - Air Alert will increase your leap by 8 to 14 inches over 15 weeks while Phase II - Air Alert Advanced, will increase it by an additional 3-5 inches over 6 weeks.
3 Day Per Week Rotating Schedule
Air Alert® (Phase I) and Air Alert® Advanced (Phase II) both operate on a 3 day rotating style schedule based on odd and even weeks.
During the odd weeks (weeks 1, 3, 5 and so on), you will conduct Air Alert on Monday-Wednesday-Friday. And during the even weeks (weeks 2, 4, 6 and so on), you will conduct Air Alert® on Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday. The basis for this schedule is 3-fold. The every other day workouts build muscle strength whereas the even week, 3 consecutive day workouts focus on the instinctive jump training. And finally, this workout allows your legs 3 full days of recovery during each weekend minimizing overworked muscles and maximizing your potential.
9 Step Workout System
The Air Alert® jump training program is a 9 step system that utilizes 6 exercises that attack the thighs, calves, butt and hamstrings.
The exercises are as follows: Leap ups which attack the quads, Step Ups which work the butt and quads, Squat Hops which work the butt and quads, Calf Raises which work the calf muscles, Thrust Ups which work the calf and outer thigh muscles and Burnouts which work the upper calf.
We also recommend sprinting 2 days per week to strengthen the hamstrings.
Convenient And Safe Workout
Air Alert®, Version IV is also convenient. Its natural body weight training technique means no need to go to a weight room. You can complete the program privately in the comfort of your own home or backyard and jam and work out to your own motivational music, and all you need is a stool or chair and basketball shoes.
