High volume legs today! After chasing heavier lifting & more strength-based movements, today was about lots of reps.
After my press/hinge/calf movements I decided to throw in this nasty little burnout.
Box jumps can be scary for anyone starting out, it’s good to start small before developing a high box jump, and using soft boxes vs. plyos when accessible. One thing I see often is people SQUAT the movement, using the quads get up the box. However, HINGE to get up there!!! Your glutes & hammies will be more productive in this movement. The glute thrust is one of the most powerful movements in your arsenal!! After the box jumps I taxed the glutes/hammies out with some ball slams, which is also a HINGE, not a SQUAT!
