Jumpsoles FAQ

> Jumpsoles Official Main Page


Yes! Over the years, JUMPSOLES have been worn successfully by thousands of serious athletes, building up an impressive safety record. JUMPSOLES are built extra wide on the outside edges to prevent you from roll-over pronation injuries. JUMPSOLES strengthen the Plantaris and Gastrocnemius muscle areas of your lower leg. When used properly, JUMPSOLES strengthen your Achilles area, making it much more flexible, and thus, actually making you more resistant to injury.  The Proprioceptors make you resistant to ankle injuries as well, and are used by professional sports organizations as a rehabilitation device as well.
"I want to let you know how much success I've been having using the Jumpsoles. I've implemented Jumpsoles into my athletes' training for several years now, and the results have been tremendous. Combined with a thorough weight training and plyometric program, the Jumpsoles have helped my athletes make significant improvements in their vertical jumps."
-Greg Werner, Director of Strength &  Conditioning, James Madison University

What's the difference between JUMPSOLES and the shoes that I've seen on the market with the platform built in?

JUMPSOLES are the only platforms which attach onto your own shoe. The almost 5 lbs of extra weight added to the outermost part of your feet make JUMPSOLES heavier than any platform shoe for a harder workout. The advantages of having attachable platforms are many. If your feet are growing, you will not outgrow your JUMPSOLES, because they come in 4 basic sizes, each of which accomodate a certain range of shoe sizes. Another advantage is that you can share your JUMPSOLES with a friend, or use multiple sets of them as a station for circuit training in team workouts. Perhaps most importantly, only Jumpsoles has the patented Proprioceptor Added Hops plug-in capability.

What's the earliest age at which JUMPSOLES can be used?

A rule of thumb is: you are ready if your shoe size is at least 5, or you are at least 12 years old. While your musculature is not quite ready to do intensive plyometrics or power lifting at this age, your neural system is ready to learn the proper mechanics of jumping and sprinting. JUMPSOLES condition your motor neural pathways so that you power off your forefoot for maximum jump height and stride length.

Will Jumpsoles or Proprioceptors stunt kids' growth?

Definitely not. Jumpsoles and Proprioceptors are designed to build muscles safely through natural standing, walking, & jumping on their own body weight. Danger of stunted growth occurs when kids try to lift unnaturally heavy weights which their bones cannot support before their growth plates have closed. As long as he stays clear of trying to lift heavy extra weights, your son will grow to his full genetic height potential.

Can I play basketball while wearing JUMPSOLES?

JUMPSOLES are primarily for off the court strength training. While not designed for competitive play, you can shoot around in them, as many basketball teams already do in warm-ups. Since you are always on your toes with JUMPSOLES, practicing your dribbling and footwork in JUMPSOLES develops quickness and balance for more accurate shooting.

If I work out with JUMPSOLES every day, will I see quicker results?

No. Your body needs at least 48 hours to regenerate the muscle fibers broken down by the Power Plyometrics workout. If you feel like you're losing vertical, it's a sure sign that you're overtraining. For best results, get proper rest and follow the training program.

If I stop using JUMPSOLES, will I lose my vertical?

Any form of exercise will yield diminishing returns after a period of time. The JUMPSOLES Power Plyometric Program incorporates the state of the art method of training known as Periodization to ensure that you mix up your workouts for steady and consistent gains.  If you are not active, train with JUMPSOLES once a week or at least twice a month to maintain your gains.

What about the other jump programs that I've seen on the market?

While the information in other jump programs might be useful, all of it is still just information which is already included with each pair of JUMPSOLES. Info-only jumping programs can't do what JUMPSOLES do which is to physically alter the geometry of jump training to focus on the lower leg muscles - your calves, feet, and toes. That's where as much as 30% of your propulsion in running and jumping comes from. Nothing is better than JUMPSOLES at recruiting this vitally important muscle group. In fact, Jumpsoles can be used in conjunction WITH many other jump programs to enhance improve upon them.

Are Jumpsoles some kind of gimmick?

Are weight vests some kind of gimmick? Elastic cord harnesses? Parachutes? You can call any piece of training equipment a "gimmick". That's exactly what they are if they end up in your closet, and you just sit there wishing you could jump higher. Jumpsoles when used regularly and intelligently according to instructions maximize and distribute the workout to your calves and forefoot. Up to 30% of your vertical jump is generated there, and those muscles are available and waiting to contribute crucial inches to your vertical jump - if you can train properly to access the power. That's what Jumpsoles train you to do! There are critics on the internet who say that you don't need tools like Jumpsoles. We say, why fool around? If you're serious about building anything like your vertical jump, having tools is better than having no tools!
