Dynamic Speed Day

Box Jumps - 16 sets of 4 jumps
4sets @ 20" box, 4 sets @ 24", 4 sets @ 30 inch, 4 sets @ max height

Lunge jumps - 2 x 10 each leg with 5kg dumbbells
Squat 40% of 1RM 3 x 15

The aim of this workout is to transfer the strength and power we have in our legs into power movements. By doing short reps with around 30 sec rest between sets and 1-2 minutes between tasks we are approaching fatigue and demanding continued power. High level professional sports require energy transfer from start to finish and in a fatigue state is usually when the contest is won or lost. Here we are developing explosive leg power which will translate into a stronger squat, higher jump and faster hip extension.
