Hi everyone

I've been reading Adarq forum for considerable amount of time and I found here many valuable informations on jumping and overall athletic performance. I decide to sign in because probably  as all of ya I want to impove my vert and explosivnes and share some experience along the way.

I'm 6'3'' @ 185 lbs, age: 27. I participate in amateur volleyball and beach volleyball events. My current stats are: SVJ: 26'', RVJ: 29". My main goals are to improve both of them significantly.

Training history:
My interest in improving vj started at age of 24. I had about 24'' both SVJ and RVJ. At that time I've found Vertical Jump Bible and started novice weightlifting program and after that I followed custom weight programs with random consistency. Unfortunately year ago I've developed some patellar tendonitis and I'm working out to cure it fully. Now I'm able to play my sports without any pain and do some quad involving excersises like snatch grip deadlift or bulgarian split squat but I have to avoid squating.

My current weight lifting stats are:
Deadlift (conventional): 330 lbs
Bulgarian split squat:    6 reps @ 135 lbs
Hang power clean:        175 lbs
Push press:                   160 lbs
Bench press:                 175 lbs

Hope to work hard and get resaults.
Have a nice day.
Jumpseeker (probably as all of ya :) )

Welcome.

Maybe getting a very strong posterior chain would help you be less quad dominant and become more athletic AND get rid of that patellar tendonitis at the same time, if you're able to train the posterior chain without the injury flaring up.

If you can deadlift (leg driven deadlifts), BSS or hip thrust confortably - use them! Even leg curls could work.

Thanks for fast response,
My current routine is based on deadlift variations with higher intensity (from sets of 5 to singles) and BSS with lower intensity (8-12 reps per set). So I agree with yout sugestions Raptor.

Yeah deadlifts can definitely work as long as they are leg driven and not back driven. They even can get some quad work in there at the bottom of the lift.

For that reason I incorporate snatch grip deads sometimes even with small plates for greater range of motion and I try to focus on constant torso angle in first phase of the lift.
