    Much better second time round, already felt more reactive off the floor and my body was less run-down after the depth jump day. I think improving my technique helped, I was likely too upright when I landed depth jumps and was jarring my lower back. I realised glutes were knackered from the lateral jumping and after the initial tough session they have less DOMS.

    I’ve been eating more as i’m very light following a 10 week calorie restriction. This week averaged P144 C220 F93 Cals 2320.

    Resting today (14th) then first CMJ re-test tomorrow afternoon and a short video update.

    Below are my tuck jumps from Day 5.
