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 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 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.
