Wierd thing happened to my VERT

I just wanted to share something wierd that happened to my jumping ability.
Before last week I was focusing on Strength and Force Absorption, my DLRVJ
was increasing marginily each week then suddendly it droppped 2-4 inches, my SVJ was
still good but it seemed the more force i tried to put in the ground on run-ups the lower
my vert was. I was baffled and tried a whole bunch of different shit. Then after a game last week I started
thinking whilst be pissed off. I went outside of my house at about nine oclock at night and did some
pogo's, ankle hops, Lateral cone hops. THE VERY NEXT DAY I WAS FLYING WHAT THE F***K.
so from now on I include a lot of stuff for my ankles strenghth/stiffness in my training.

Just thought I'd share it with yall.  :)
Current highest touch = 11'4" (37"-38")
Squat = 140kg x5
             160KgX1
Weight = 97kg
Height = 6'3"
Reach = 8'2"-8'3"

ya we've all had stuff like that happen..

usually it's a CNS issue, for example, being too drained or fatigued. It could also be actual fatigue: lack of glycogen, inflamed fasciae, lack of nutrition, bad nutrition (too much corn syrup).

when your CNS is drained, it'll hold back the amount of power/strength/limb quickness you have, on every movement. So when you train under this reduced performance level, it usually becomes a recovery workout. For example, if you're cns is fatigued from a workout a few days ago, and you're doing MAX jumps, those jumps in reality are submax even though you're attempting to go max. It's hard to overload the CNS under these conditions, so alot of times those workouts just become recovery workouts, and the next day (or few days later) you'll be back on point.

it's alot easier to keep overloading the CNS when you're doing weightlifting wokouts, because you can really push to try and move a weight your body is telling you not too.. that turns it from a recovery workout into an extra fatigue workout, setting your recovery back a few more days.

peace!

feels so good man... haha can't wait for my current deload to be over!
"Performance during stretch-shortening cycle exercise is influenced by the visco-elastic properties of the muscle-tendon units. During stretching of an activated muscle, mechanical energy is absorbed in the tendon structures (tendon and aponeurosis) and this energy can subsequently be re-utilized if shortening of the muscle immediately follows the stretching. According to Biscotti (2000), 72% of the elastic energy restitution action comes from tendons, 28% - from contractile elements of muscles.
