This was nearly 90 seconds slower than the last time I did this drill.  Going off the back of the past two days plus the deadlifts earlier just made the weary legs dig deeper.  All good, I say…they’re going to have to dig deep in November.  Warm up well for the jump sequence as the plyometric rebounds can be stressful for your achilles tendon.  Mine was just saying a quiet “hello” tonight…this translates to a rest day tomorrow finished off by a myotherapy session with Nikki.  I am looking forward to kicking off these treatments but they are going to be far from pleasant.  I might take a stick to bite down on.

Don’t worry if you need to scale the boxes down a bit…and in the same breath, hats off to you if you can ramp them up….I’ve added the video below to give you a look at how one guy gets his plyometric training done…meet Damien Walters…
