I just started to add in some easy box jumps before squatting. So far I like it and it’s really helped my explosiveness. But before today I’ve never really done any type of jump going for personal records. I picked standing broad jump and got about 8’6". Now idk if this is good or not but in middle school I remember getting around 7’ for the state fitness test or whatever lol.
So who here believes that jumps can be a great part of a powerlifters training? How do you usually use them in your training? Also share some pr’s if you have any.
And yes I know there are some great articles on this site about jump training but usually they’re not from a powerlifters standpoint. I occasionally see a west side video using them which is proof enough that they help.
