From Jordan to Kobe Bryant to Dwyane Wade and countless other superstars, Grover’s revolutionary methods have made the best even better, year after year.
In Jump Attack, Grover shares the revolutionary program he uses to train the pros. A fitness bible for athletes around the world, this three-phase, twelve-week program has been completely updated with new exercises and workouts as well as cutting-edge information on training, nutrition, longevity, injury prevention, and more. Devised for explosive power, quickness, endurance, and agility, this intensely challenging workout pushes athletes out of their comfort zones, tests their capacity to go harder, and turns “I can’t” into “Just try and stop me.”
You don’t have to be an elite athlete to benefit from Grover’s program—but you can attain the mindset of a champion through the physical program outlined in this complete plan. Says Grover: “This is how my pros do it. If you want to become more explosive, stronger, and faster, if you want to jump higher and improve your overall athletic performance in any sport, this is exactly how we do it today: This program is the difference between jumping and taking flight.”
Grover (Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable) is perhaps best known for training basketball legend Michael Jordan over the course of 15 years and six NBA championships. In this update of his self-published book, Grover presents the regimen Jordan used to increase his vertical jump from 38 to 48 inches. Leaping ability is not the goal, writes Grover. Rather, it's about improving explosiveness. That quality can be applied throughout athletics, whether it's coming off the line of scrimmage or stealing a base. Grover's 12-week program consists of three phases with multiple workout sequences Fire, Force, and Flight that elongate the muscles before preparing them for game-time performance. The photographs and instructions clearly outline an intense routine that will hook athletic individuals eager to mimic Jordan's work ethic. Casual gym members shouldn't be intimidated. Even Grover's individual moves can be used to take a workout up a notch, while the no-nonsense exercise and lifestyle advice green apples are perfect snacks because you eat one and you're done; loose hips drive athleticism are easy to implement.
