tendon issues are largely due to sudden jumps in loading and volume, so ease back into it and build up slowly over time

Hey, got a email, and I came back. Gonna play some basketball later today. :)
Last time I played basketball. 1995. Got to relearn all skills over again. If you're aging, don't quit BB. It may help keep you feeling younger.

My "sled" drag. Not really a sled, but it works to provide resistance running. And my vertical measuring board. I'm terribly out of shape and can only manage a 12" vertical right now. :(

Only managed a 10.5 inch vertical today. Really tired. Did depth jumps and single leg box squats with low weight.

Today a new day. Reached 12.25 inches on the standing jump. I'm 260 lbs and 61 years old.

Interesting about Jonathan Edwards. The Olympic Gold medal winner in the triple jump (at 34 years of age!) and his workout routine. He probably had a quite high vertical jump.

I used to be able to those without assistance and it definitely improved my hamstring strength but was lighter than now I have more weight my strength to weight ratio has gone down. But neglecting other aspects really affected my peformance, I didn't train the quads at all, due to ignorance. I used to do it holding weight too.
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up

Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm

Did the ability to do Nordic ham curls help your vertical jump?

a couple people on here swear by knees over toes guy, FWIW.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

There are a few threads here on the Ben Patrick.
I have used a few of his ideas to help fix myself up

In any case Nordics are for injury prevention. It won't help your vertical directly. They are no different from leg curls, and no one ever jumped high from doing them :)
The prime movers for jumping are the quads and glutes

It never did help my vertical.

Injury prevention is a good enough reason for me to do them. I did some yesterday and this morning had hamstring cramps real bad.

Just make sure your hitting your quads just as hard, or you will blow out your knee
