Dr Squat, has anyone actually completed your vertical jump program?
I have yet to see anyone complete it - so I am putting my hand up to give the program a go. I've seen people comment on it, some start it, but no-one finished it.
I just completed my 2nd workout (Wednesday) of the first week, but I only just got my account activated to be able to post.
I am modifing just 2 things in the Dr Squat Vertical Jump Program -
1) No plyometrics what so ever - I am 'fairly' in-season at the moment with basketball in Australia and considering my depth jump vertical off an 18 inch box is 31 inches and my standing vertical is just 28 inches, I think my strength needs to catch up.
2) Three phases to the program - No change to the first 8 weeks, the second lot of 8 weeks will be based on the first few weeks of the second phase (still at 3 workouts per week), and the final 8 weeks will be based on the 2 workouts a week part of the second phase.
Strength is my only issue so I realise that some of my gains will be 'beginner' gains due to my lack of strength training background. I have every vertical jump program on the market, but only for research/knowledge purposes. I have only ever done Air Alert back when I was 15 (23 now). It did some good things and bad things, mostly good though so no complaints about Air Alert on my behalf.
I am also taking the 'wonder supplement' Adenotrex, but I am very concerned over the hype about it as it hasn't done a thing for me yet (after 7 weeks).
One thing that has worked well for me are the Springbak Insoles. Now that is a product.
I can already dunk off one or two feet with one or two hands, so it is more to go beyond that level.
So guys, I will post every workout day only, and will test my vertical twice per phase - after the first 4 weeks, and during the active rest week of each phase.
Let's see how I go!
Hope you guys can help me along the way in case I lose motivation or something, as 24 weeks is quite a long time to stay dedicated, but there is plenty of variety to keep me from buring out!
