    Depth Drop – 4 x 5 x 30cm
    Rhythm Jump – 4 x 10
    Rebounds – 3 x 20
    OH Squat – 4 x 5 x 20kg
    Hex DL – Singles @ 2 x 100kg, 110k,g 120kg, 2 x 130kg, 2 x 135kg, 2 x 140kg

    Really liked this session, anything with deadlift singles is a winner in my book. Only used the bar for OH squat as it’s more about gaining flexibility than setting PB’s.

    Depth Drop – 3 x 5 x 40cm
    Skips (Height) – 4 x 10
    Rhythm Jumps – 3 x 10
    SL Line Hops – 2 x 15 secs per leg per direction

    I know depth drop as “shock jumps” and I’ve done up to 1 metre at Uni, so didn’t want to mull around at 30cm when I know I can cope with higher. Also used to do skips for height at uni for our sprints warm up and it was nice to do them again.

    Standing Vert – 56cm, 56cm, 57cm, 57cm, 57cm
    2 Step Approach – 5 x 1
    Full Approach 2 foot – 6 x 1
    Full Approach 1 foot – 5 x 1 per leg
    OH squat – 4 x 5 x 20kg
    Box Squat – 8 x 65kg, 3 x 8 x 85kg

    Already tired my legs out enough that I’m down on my CMJ best. His technical cues helped me feel really explosive off two feet, I have never ever tried a single leg approach for a dunk and it showed. I will keep at it if only to improve co-ordination. Box squats were capped at 65% 1RM which for me is 85kg, felt really strong here.

    As well as this I’m doing his full daily routine which involves a few bodyweight exercises for sets of 20 and then a series of about a dozen stretches.
