SL ATS – 3 x 4
Hex Bar Jump Squats – 2 x 5 x 40kg
Seated Box Jumps – 3 x 5
Back Squat – 4 x 6 x 105kg RPE 5.8 (out of 7)

I’m ready to start bumping up these weights. If you look at my best lifts log https://strengthlevel.com/52858-9to5strength/squat you can see that my estimated 1RM floats around 125-135kg and it’s on the low end now. I want to squat 2x BW then try a higher level of Jump Science, which right now would mean 145kg.

Digging mud & clay – 3.5 hours

Far from being a rest day, I went to my parents to help my dad dig a trench and load the earth into a skip. There was lots of wet clay soil and it was a struggle, my calves were really tight afterwards.

SL ATS – 3 x 4
Jump Squats – 2 x 4 x 50kg
2 step approach – 6 per side
Floor to Ceiling Jumps – 3 x 8
RLESS – 3 x 8 x 60kg

My hex bar had 50kg on it so I tried heavier jump squats, it might be nice to do a spectrum in case 40kg wasn’t the perfect weight for developing power. My approaches were good, I found Isaiah Rivera on YouTube and his tutorial videos for jumping made so much sense to me https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCw1mvHj6NL86Pj01IeBvjWA I might test my standing vert next week and if it’s good enough I could pop to the basketball court and see if I can touch the backboard. RLESS were much stronger, I rested 90 secs between each leg and that allowed better balance and focus.
