Shouldn't this thread be bumped? You know, just for fun?

I was reading through it and I was like "hey, this might actually work". I like this the most:

Secret society exercise #2. Riding a 6 foot unicycle

In the words of Alex Maroko, this exercise is awesome. I was told that it has to be a 6 foot unicycle, in order to trick the CNS into thinking you are 45+ inches off the ground, which helps to rewire your cns and give you a new sense of kinesthesia, making your current vert feel like easy work. You must also not wear a helmet, because this causes the fight or flight response to kick in and helps to enlarge the adrenals so that you can produce more adrenaline when dunking. Another interesting aspect of this exercise, is that if you pull back on the pedal stroke, it really hits the hip flexors hard blu, real hard. This will help you land BTL's alot easier with your new vert, as now you can explosive hip flex at elite levels and get the ball between your legs much easier.

I therefore recommend starting to re-read this thread beginning with the first post.

EDIT: Fucking shit, I forgot how much of a genius adarqui sometimes (usually) is - even in my current death-like mental state I still laughed like crazy hahaha :-* :personal-record: :ibjumping:

You guys really really need to re-read this thread, especially the first post haha

Yeah I changed to my real name.

It is an effective exercise but since I was maxing out I compromised form except for the third repetition. Yeah I used to sometimes put my feet on 10lb plates to get that extra achilles tendon involved, so wearing jumpsoles would be good. I usually just do these standing now, excpet I haven't done much lifting this summer since I've been doing bounding + sofa and vert been skyrocketing so doesn't matter. But today I did them again and I like them because I can target the vastus lateralis very well but can't in lunges or anything else as much. You can also rotate the bar as you lift it up, it's tremendous.

Another great variation is once I lift the weight up, I drop it down as fast as possible witout letting it hit the floor (pretty much my feet temporarily leave the floor while hips drop) and this rips up everything quite well, then jump back up. Can do that with lunges, squats, anything as long as the load is moderate and you don't kill yourself.

In all honesty though, that the running vertical jump lift is just a nitpicky way to train slightly more specifically. You'll get similar results in squats except glute/ham activation better with this

This is also amazing.

True. He also had some good ideas, beyond his crazy ones.

Btw... do you think he was trolling in that answer above? I don't think he was, I think he was genuinely replying. Hence why you put your response like that after that post. lel

He definitely normalized his training a bit later on and was making really good progress. That's the thing about writing down your ideas and posting them, you hear about it when you're talking nonsense.

I also think he had some good ideas. If anything, being inventive adds to the passion of it all and could be useful in the right context. But boy did he have some whacky/ hilarious ones. Avishek drops are a classic.

yeah he was definitely creative. and he definitely believed what he was saying, or at least that whatever he was doing was worth trying. the couple of workouts we did together were normal sprint workouts, for the most part, although he had a thing for "horizontal depth jumps" -- basically a submax broad jump that transitions to a SVJ.

Well that should prime the posterior chain, in principle.
