The thing is, I didn't really start off doing those core lifts in aug, I was jus playing ball & doing plyo's. but there was such a difference between my standing vert & my running vert that I needed to get my power up, so I started doing squats, cleans, etc, about a month ago. Don't really know how strong I am in all these lifts. Been doing 225 5x5 on squats, deadlifting the same, doing cleans with 95-115. I need to find out what my max is on all these so I can bump it up soon. Thanks for the welcome, I look forward to being motivated & helping others with motivation along the way. I always say, "u don't have to be ready, if u stay ready"! And about the comment about death to Uconn, were gonna be just fine. 3 national titles, a ton of conference championships, and one of the elite programs in college basketball. I respect your opinion, I'm out.....

It's interesting that your running vert went up by 5 inches, but your standing very only went up by 2. You either have some very functional calves/good structure for running jumps and you were really lacking in upperleg/glute strenght, or that you don't really care about the standing jump.

Any ideas?

I never paid attention to my standing vert, I've always had huge calves on skinny legs.....LOL. I figured the difference was because I always ran & jumped & also did plyo's a lot, but recently I have started doing alot of heavy weights fast olympic style & my standing vert has gone up 2", so I figured I'm starting to increase the power in my quads & legs so my vert should start to really take off I hope! Thanks for the input....peace

Yup. If you see your run-up speed starting to decrease considerably, that's the first sign of a "upperleg dominant" jumper if you will.
