A Journey to Running Fast and Jumping High

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stats of August 2014:
Height: 5'9
Weight: 9 stones probably

Thigh measurement tensed straight: 23"
Bicep Measurement flexed: 11"
Abdomen: 31"
Hip: 33"
Upperbody/Chest (tensed) (all the way round, lats affect measurement): 36"
Forearm tensed: 10"
Calf plantarflexed: 13 1/2"
Kneck tensed: 15"
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5 Step size measurement = 148cm
I will keep a log of all my training that i do here.

But i had to post a journal to get started.

A good tip from Kelly B, which i can include in my journal.
'What�s the easiest way to identify over-reaching? Pay attention to your motivation. I tell people to rank themselves on a scale of 1-10 for energy, motivation, and sleep every day and write it in their training log. It�s not perfect but if you can't give yourself at least a 7 in all 3 categories it�s pretty wise to take the day off.

Thanks, Hope to get started as soon as possible.

Hey guys my first journal post. i decided to do saq drills. this is how it went.

mativation:7/10 not very motivated but enough to force me to work
its always the first day of workout that is the hardest the rest just smoothly follows

thirsty after every 2 workout.

very hot blazing sunny day i missed yesterday it doesn't matter but i would have had 2 days rest in weekends but now i will have to workout on saturday, nevermind

lateral line jumps 1 leg and 2 leg
jump rope

after the above i was super tired, really tired the next ones were a bit better

ladder drills run through 1 leg, then i did 2 leg, icky shuffle 1 leg, 2 leg

cone snake drill running in and out of cones.
i was thinking of just hopping from one leg to another in and out but that probably wouldn't work so ran in and out.

flying 30m i gave myself 30m to accelerate and maintain speed for 30m no blocks so i question my form of sprinting

most tiring was skipping 3 x cycle of 10 reps of jumping, 1 leg, other leg alternate

do 1 week of this 3 days a week at the end of the week will post the results of lateral line jumps to see where i am.

peace

29/09/2011

Motivation: 8/10 which later on became 9/10 when you get comfortable
Hunger:low
Amt of Fatigue: 3/10

alternate line jumps 60
alternate line jumps 1 leg 60

skipping: fast double leg jump, 1 leg each, alternate can proceed to high knee alternate skips

as always the tiring part of the workout is done on to agility and speed drill

for the part where you run in and out of the cones sometimes i think you have to run properly instead of justing hopping in and out and therefore i lose concentration and goes wrong sometimes.

cones are placed 1m apart in a line just have to run in and out. what is the best cone drill for agility speed and quickness

flying 30 yard dash i can tell the drills are helpful as i can move my legs faster then before.

the plan you mentioned looks like what i remember cressey's generic routines looking like. plus you posted a video of tony gentilcore. my bad if it wasn't actually from him.

If you are referring to my speed agility and quickness drills then no i just found some drills put them into a routine so it is my own routine i made. the video i don't know who is in it but i got it from stronglifts website for hip mobility drills, like the drill alot but gets tiring on my quads hips and hams when you have to go up and down stay down then go up then go down do it 8 times. but once done that's it done only one set.

np

Since the site was down. i have completed one week and have a lot to say

the workout went as normal

i am gradually improving the jump rope technique i can do 1 leg fast, alternate but since the rope is short i have to bring my arms below or level to hips but still get it over me.

when i do the ladder drills i try to move legs up and down as fast as possible when going through the ladder and this cause area around my last 2 fingers to pain most pain on the second from last toe of my right feet, am i running on the edge of the balls of my feet or is it something else?

i ran the 60m while i was counting; i know biased results, but counted mississiply and got 7 missis which is 6.5 which is good.

i also tried to blow out when one of my hands comes in front not both.

workout going well.

peace

is it more efficient to test with shoes then barefoot.
when i test with barefoot i try as fast as i can that gradually my feet just drag on the floor back and forth and ruins the pattern.
it is really hard to get 60 jumps in 10 seconds?!

but will keep with the training. hard to test and to keep track of time as i do it myself.

Now probably because i can do 40+ jumps with 1 and 2 leg i am going to add weights. Not going to using ankle weights tied around my ankle but just place ankle weights in my pocket to weigh me down. That will be good during the ladder drill, skipping and the flying 30's

Also everyday i will be going through a secret routine which i will not disclose, but will disclose after i get results. so keep an eye out for the results of the secret routine.  :ninja:

Entering 4th week.

Training Update:

I just stopped working out a few weeks ago as i felt i had a reached a state where i was not improving, a plateau. So i thought of adding load to my workout.

I just finished making a home made weighted vest and am set to start again this week.

Just read this, lol at the counting 60m.  6.5 while counting without spikes isn't good, it's freaking world class fastest man in the world type time.  Which might be a good reason to reconsider your method.

+1 i hadn't noticed that before, either. counting in your head while sprinting as a way to time yourself...  :P :P :P :P

Haha, I cannot concentrate on counting while sprinting topspeed.

I have a mini stopwatch that fell out of what used to be a wristwatch and use that. I used to use an itouch, that worked but was unreliable because I would often fail to hit the start or end buttons.
"Performance during stretch-shortening cycle exercise is influenced by the visco-elastic properties of the muscle-tendon units. During stretching of an activated muscle, mechanical energy is absorbed in the tendon structures (tendon and aponeurosis) and this energy can subsequently be re-utilized if shortening of the muscle immediately follows the stretching. According to Biscotti (2000), 72% of the elastic energy restitution action comes from tendons, 28% - from contractile elements of muscles.
