    what are you using them for?

    what is confusing about them?

    haha hell yeah man..


    Im trying to condition myself for football ( just begginning to tryout this upcoming summer ) im trying out for cornerback so im trying to improve my jumping..I understand the basics, but I just need to know how to fit it into my workout routine

    one source says to do a weight training exercise and then do a plyometric exercise.. others say to do the plyometric exercises on your rest days..

    i dunno i just need to know how to still weight train and include plyometrics..

    thanks guys for your help and concern

    Honestly, I think you need to focus on strength right now. You are at a level of strength where simply getting stronger will do a whole lot for speed.

    For the time being, I would say yes. You may, however, consider lifting heavier than you do sometimes. I poked my head in your journal and saw you doing 3x12 with flat pyramid loading schemes the whole way through. Heavier weights are more conducive to functional hypertrophy as well as neurological improvements. Granted, I seem to recall that you are fairly new to lifting, so it may not make too much of a difference just yet, but keep it in mind for the very near future.

    No... It honestly can make a huge difference in speed, mobility, and jumping. If you want to take part in athletics, fighting, etc. it can make the difference in being 1st or 2nd string.
    May the Lord Jesus Christ bless those who bless me as I gladly accept their blessings, and curse those who curse me all the while protecting me for any evils. In Christ name, amen...

    I think this would be even better for you than weights would. Train with weights but not too much. Intense training can stunt your grow anyway... You grow from your joints. Ask a doctor. I'd suggest lifting but not very heavy or with too many sets. I'd buy some jumpsoles and work that and cardio more than anything at this point. When you're 18 I'll give weights the bulk of my attention...
