I can’t seem to find the information I want on this subject. I’ve always been a very fast runner all my life, and can jump reasonably high. I’d like to improve this as much as possible still.
Calf raises for instance, should I be focusing on high reps or low reps? Should I be going very slow for the ROM or a constant speed? I assume building even more fast twitch muscles will increase my speed, so that is a goal with my legs. I am not looking for larger calves at this time.
For squats I have been doing 8x3 going slightly below parallel each rep. I don’t have a super wide stance. I’ve heard that if you keep a more natural stance, with feet just about shoulder width apart, you can gain power in your vertical leap.
Any articles on training calves/squats for speed and jumping around here? Sorry if this has been covered before.
