I have been reading a lot about vertical jump and am thinking about start working on mine.
I am 37 yo, 190, 11%bf been playing volleyball since 13 back after 7 years out due to injury bla bla bla. BUt mostly in Brazil where I didn't have access to a gym therefore I never did a strength program for my legs.
Yesterday I tested my ATG squat = 206lbs and today I tested my jump at the end of a plyo session = 21in.
These numbers are quite pathetic what makes me believe that here is a lot of space for improvement.
My season finishes in 2 weeks and my off season (20 weeks) goals are:
- drop body fat down to 8 or 9%
- spend the first month doing NO impact and letting everything heal
- squat, jump, rest repeat.
