"The muscles which are recruited most for the vertical jump are the glutes and hamstrings which contribute each relatively 40 & 25% of the force output. Contrary to popular belief the quads only contribute 5% or less to the vertical jump. "


Relax.

Have you watched the video?

  Ive watched the video, read probably every book he has put out and 99 percent of his articles as well. He says some good things at times and also says lot of controversial things that are stated as fact, but really his opinion.  He also catches tons of flack for his work with a couple of high end athletes that left them injured in some cases and with big decreases in performance in others, you can easily look into that if you wish.  Im not flaming him I respect him as a coach, but his opinion is far from being the standard of strength training.
Relax.

Say NO to Maroko

And also NO to anyone who associates with him. No Taylor Allan. No Adam Scammenauger. No Kelly Baggett. No Elliot Hulse. No Jtrinsey. NO JUMP USA


Don't PM me asking me training questions. I'm here for the lulz. If you want help, post on the forums and get help from all the members, maybe even me.
