    can anyone suggest/link me exercises or routines that would help me increase my vertical jump? also, what plyo exercises should i be doing? would like to incorporate into my current ws4sb3 routine if possible.

    I downloaded a vertical jump routine that Ceaze posted a while back, when I get home (at work right now) on my own computer I'll try to upload for you.

    I haven't tried it personally, haven't really had the time to actually take a solid look at it and do it. Right now trying to focus on other things, stopped playing football and I don't play basketball/volleyball so vertical isn't really a top priority of mine

    explosion on squat/leg press
    note: pick a moderately heavy weight that you can move at a fast pace
    it helps to imagine yourself jumping while you do it

    for plyos, a routine i used to do while I did track/field was hurdles. you'd jump from a standstill over three hurdles set moderately high at a fast pace.

    I know Kelly's stuff well and if you look at how he initially developed his program he advocates squats and glute ham raises (as well as other exercises that hit the posterior chain) a whole lot.

    So what could the original poster have learned from your post that he wouldn't have learned from reading Kelly's book?

    Perhaps I mistook what you said by disregarding the other posts, i.e. I though you were saying there wasnt any valuable information in them.

    that's exactly what he was saying...there can't possibly be helpful information that ceaze doesn't already know...

    I meant if he read Kelly's book then there's probably not much else anyone here could add.


    Of course there's totally pointless replies like "kettlebells" which is no different from someone replying with "barbells."

    Squats and box jumps are really all you need.

    can someone clarify the one legged squat for me? all the descriptions and pictures i've seen of the one legged squat have the working foot with the heel planted on the ground but in Kelly Baggett's Jump Bible the picture accompanying the description has the guy on the ball of his working foot. the first week i did them with my heel on the ground. only managed to get to a point above parallel though. when i tried to go any lower i had to grab something so i wouldn't fall over. you guys have any tips to help with this?

    5'10" white guy who could do a 360 off the bounce, my twin bro is 5'11" and could touch the top of the box.

    Air Alert II

    Thats the jumping program we used. I can guarantee that it will work. You won't see the gains while you are doing it, too much leg exertion, but they'll skyrocket once you quit. Its only fair to warn you, however, this shit tears up your knees like nobody's business. Between this program and spending hundreds of hours dunking on concrete outdoor courts, my knees are pretty much jacked and i'm only 28. But it does work.
