Vertical Jump Bible

I am currently doing kelly baggets vertical jump development program. I am on week 14 of intermediate reactive strength. I just started intramural basketball. The games are at night (8pm). Its average intensity.

my question is:

so the day of the week we play games has replaced the workout A from the prog.

WHAT WOULD BE BEST?
-just play basketball that day.
-just do the weight training aspect of it in the morning.
-just do the weight training aspect before the games.

  • or just do the full (plyos+weights) program that morning.

what do you guys think? Thanx in advance.

What weight training and plyos are prescribed that for that day?

Why don’t you send an email to Kelly and ask him?

Good call, he’d probably answer. I would also go through the Q+A’s on higher-faster-sports.com and see if he’s already answered the question.

Personally, I would do just the weight training in the morning (if possible). If you can’t do it in the morning I would do it before playing. I probably wouldn’t do the plyo’s if you’re playing later. Personally, I get pretty fried if I do too much plio or jump training in one day.

You could always try different options and see how your body responds.

Week 14 ? by now your legs should be relatively used to the program. If intramurals are anything like mine it was only one game a week anyway. Just do the program make sure you get as much rest as possible and you should be okay for your games.
Get a nice coffee boost if you can.
