That looked pretty high. I liked the technique on the 2nd jump a bit more.

Thanks. You notice any difference in jump mechanics between those and ones from last year?

I was thinking about that, and I checked it again - I think you use a bit more speed and plant a bit more deep but I still maintain what I said back then - you could probably elongate the plant (plant with a longer "drop") and more to the side, like here: :ibjumping: and you might get higher.

If you can, it's worth trying I guess.

Next week I'll upload some footage with one step and 3 step vert... I think the shorter the runup the longer my strides are. I'll try to take a long plant step on rvj next session too.

Awesome squat, 2.25xbw is no joke for a // squat. How do you like the balancing smith machine for lunges?

I would much rather do regular barbell lunges but I don't really have any room to do them safely. The jones machine is as close as I can get to regular barbell lunges and is pretty safe. It still hits my glutes and hamstrings pretty hard. I've added a lot of weight to it and have noticed my legs have gotten bigger.

Getting that itch again, thought I would resurrect this thing.


I've been working on my imbalances and weak points, which were pretty bad. Improvements in those have really made a big difference and my mechanics feel much more efficient.

I haven't taken any official measurements but svj is ~30" and rvj ~35" based on my last jump session.



Workouts for now consist of :


-dynamic warmup focusing on increasing mobility

-weighted hyperextension warmup

-hang snatch 3 sets

-squat 3 sets

-step ups 3 sets


Doing a lot of foam rolling at home which has helped a tremendous amount.

Hey man. What happened in the last year/year and a half? Did you work on vert at all?

Hey man. What happened in the last year/year and a half? Did you work on vert at all?

I had a knee injury and then a shoulder injury that kept me out for a while. With the knee injury I kept doing upperbody but the shoulder injury was supposedly a nerve issue, neurologists think I have HNPP. Drs advised me not to squat as they said it could aggravate the nerve. It was weird, I couldn't raise my arm to the side or back at all. I didn't do any lifting for a while and was just doing physical therapy.

The shoulder injury happened a little over a year ago, I was training vert a little before then. In the past year there have only been a few sporadic jump sessions.


I have been back lifting for a while now but have only recently gotten back in to vert. I miss doing explosive lower body training, it brings out the freak in you :)

Mobility warmup

Jumps were weak compared to last time.. no springs. Idk why.. I hate the inconsistency of jumping.

Did a few short sprints

Whenever I have a shitty jump session it motivates me to hit the weights harder. Can't have the entire training session suck.

3x12 hyper extension

hang snatch
85x5 85x5 95x5 - form felt more efficient

squat - worked up to 235x5

step up machine 2x6
