Are JUMPSOLES safe?
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
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

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
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!
