So What is Vert Shock? It’s a closely kept industry secret, and you have been told for years that the players that obtain this ability were born with it, they’re are the super freaks who can get so much air that it seems to defy gravity.
Yet the truth is super freaks are extremely rare indeed, in fact in reality they don’t exist.
From Micheal Jordan to Harrison Barnes they all got the super freak abilities from hard work and smart training and according to Adam Folker and Justin Darlington anyone can gain at least 9 to 15 inches to their jump in days and weeks, not months.
As you can imagine Vert Shock is making a huge impact and is rapidly gaining a massive following with not just Basketball players but also Volleyball players and Parkour practioners. It’s being said that this system is the holy grail of gaining air fro many sportsmen and women .
Many products have been shouted about from the roof tops but this doesn’t mean they are necessarily any good . So let’s take an in depth look at the Vert Shock System and see for ourselves if it is worth your time and money. So below we will take a good look at the Vert Shock System and see if it is worth considering.
Vert Shock System Review
The Vert Shock System is the brainchild of Adam Folker and Justin Darlington. Adam played for UCI in his college days and then went pro. Justin ‘Jus Fly’ Darlington has won many awards as the best slam dunker in the business including the Nike Vertical award .
The Vert Shock System claims to be able to add at at least 9 – 15 inches to your vertical jumping ability in just 8 weeks.
If you would like to purchase Vert Shock or find out more about it please visit Adams Vert Shock site.
Although both Adam and Justin have a solid background in this field I have reviewed other products that make such claims, yet not all deliver what they claim. 15 inches certainly does seem to be a lot to add to the height you have already attained. To be fair to the Vert Shock System it does say if you are already able to slam dunk then adding 15 inches to the height of your jump is unrealistic. They do however claim to be able to help you improve your jump height and air time no matter what your level.
However this being said both Adam and Justin have a proven track record in this industry and are real people. Not just a couple of fake persona’s used to front this for a group of ghost writers who have just read about what it takes to jump higher then released a product.
This brings us to the actual guide itself
The Vert Shock System is a step by step program that takes you through 3 phases of training
- Pre Shock Phase – This is week 1 of the Vert Shock System and will help you gain 3- 5 inches of height in your jump. It is designed to get your body prepared for the next stage. Hence the name, Pre Shock.
- Shock Phase – Weeks 2 – 7 are the main bulk of the Vert Shock System which shocks you nervous system into helping you to jump higher.
- Post Shock Phase – Week 8 is where all you have learned and trained for becomes instilled in your body and becomes natural for you to jump higher than you thought possible.
You get access to all this via a collection of informational tools designed to help to jump higher.
It is a large set of tools that provide you with information such as:
- How to get explosive power on tap.
- Increase lateral speed.
- Speed up reaction time exponentially.
- Increase your dominance on the court.
- Block shots off the glass.
- Grab more rebounds.
- Become more powerful and have a psychological advantage over other players.
- Help you finish around the rim.
You also learn many other techniques and ways to not just improve your jump height but also how to put it into action. There certainly is a lot of solid information that is demonstrated extremely well through the use of video, articles and images. There is also extra bonus material, tips and tricks and subscription options to take you training even further.
This massive base of knowledge and attention to detail is just one of the reasons the Vert Shock System is such a popular choice and why it is gaining a massive following. It is certainly the leader of all the guides and systems out there for gaining real height on and off the court.
Let take a look a t some of the pro’s and con’s of the Vert Shock System in the section below.
The Benefit of the Vert Shock System
The Vert Shock System give you a way to absorb the information easily and fast. You are given a variety of tools from video, articles and images that all explain and show the techniques to you. It is far better than just reading a book or just watching a video. By having the images back up the video demonstrations and the articles and explanations back up both the images and video you take all the information in rapidly.
You also get access to guides and workout plans that help you achieve your goals in a time scale of just 8 weeks. Plus a forum that you can get to talk to others in the Vert Shock Program.

You can talk to Adam at any time either live or via private message. The very first day I started to look over this product and review it I spoke to Adam on line. I was expecting to not to get a very rapid reply to my answer as at this point I had not even signed up to fully review the product. To my supprise I Adam answered my questions immediately and was very forthcoming in his answers. He didn’t try to hide anything from me and was very helpful and spent a good 15 minutes talking to me online.
When you first look at the price of the Vert Shock System you will probably think that it seems a bit much for a training guide. However when you take a look at the other guides out there many of them are not only more expensive but also contain much less quality content. If you take this in to consideration you are actually getting a good deal.
The weaknesses of the Vert Shock System
Will it work for everyone?
The Vert Shock System as with everything in life will not be for everyone, you will need to put effort in over the 8 week program to see results. If you can already jump and touch your head to the rim then don’t expect to be gaining 15 inches on your jump in 8 weeks if at all. The Vert Shock System is aimed at a wide variety of people and if followed properly what ever level you are at you will realise the benefit of this program.
Don’t expect to touching your head to the rim over night
This is no magic bullet, in my experience there is no such thing. You will need to put the effort in to make this program work and get the maximum potential out of it. If you are not prepared to put a little hard graft in to gain those extra inches and have more air time then the Vert Shock System will not work for you. However bare in mind before you spend money on anything else, like those stupid shoes that will help you jump higher. Or another program that promises you just by reading it you will be able to slam dunk until your hearts content, that you will be wasting your money. Like I said at the beginning of this paragraph there is no magic bullet for anything. So if you are not willing to put the effort in then don’t waste your money and find something that you are willing to put the time and effort into .
Although I said in the pro’s section that I believe that the cost of the product is more than fair for what you receive, I always want people to bring there prices down, It’s just my nature I guess.
My overall thoughts and opinion of the Vert Shock System:
Programs like this often have a lot of hype surrounding them and the Vert Shock System is no different. As with all the reviews I do try to give as unbiased opinion as I can in order to give to an informed decision so you can make your own mind up . So I have tried to answer the most important questions about the Vert Shock System.
Does it live up to all the hype ?
As always the answer is never that easy. The system without a doubt works and has already worked well for quite a few people. The exercises that you do are not really anything new and many you will have likely done before. I suppose my main criticism would be that there is not really anything new here in the terms of exercises or diet or even really the routines.
This being said where this differs from your usual routine is in the fine details. It teaches you how do the exercises so you get the maximum benefit from them. You would be surprised just how many people including myself are not doing the exercises correctly. This is no minor detail. It’s the difference between gaining those 15 inches on your jump and not gaining anything at all.
Most of us are training our bodies for endurance when we think we are training for height without even realising it . The Vert Shock System stops you from doing this and teaches you how to train to gain height.
All the material you get with the Vert Shock System is very impressive. It is simple to use and very effective . I think the real gem of this program is the one on one coaching on offer and the ability to talk to Adam himself with any troubles you are having. Adam and Justin really want you to succeed and this comes across not only in the Vert Shock System but also when you talk to Adam you can tell he is keen for you to reach your goal and is ready to help you do that .
The Vert Shock System definitely stands out head and shoulders above it’s competition and will give you considerable height gains on your jumping ability , I couldn’t say it lives up to some of the hype I have heard and read but I certainly does do exactly what it says. If you want to jump higher the Vert Shock System is worth the purchase because you will be that guy on the court that everyone else wants to be.
