Follow Program as Prescribed???
« on: October 02, 2011, 06:42:24 am »
I purchased Jack Woodrups Vertical Mastery recently. I ran the self tests as prescribed and it spat out the attached program. Basically all plyos and not one weight in sight. I have a couple of questions about it and hoping to get some solid advice.

* I do this for beach volleyball. Sand kills the stretch reflex. Is there enough benefit for me in the suggested plyo only 8 week block? Will it train movement coordination and rate of force development enough to help me?

* Because I play on sand I don't want to lose raw strength in the legs by not lifting heavy for 8 weeks. Should I worry about that? Can I add pin squats or something or am I just stuffing my progress by altering things?

Basically I think the software is great and would address my shortcomings on a hard surface for sure. But I don't want to bust my arse getting better on hard stand if it does nothing for my sport. If its ok I wouldn't mind Jack replying here too :)

  If you want to know something about Jacks programs, ask him.  If you want to know about the difference between training for beach vs indoor volleyball, then you need to be more specific with your question, and include what you currently do that is/is not working.
