Lorien and all you other guys :thumbup:
I'm a coach and certified jump freak ( CSCS, Level II this and that with enough :dance: and BS to go with my real passion for T & F ).
So much of the posted info is "right on" with research. Anyone who can break down the Brazillian, European, LSU, Polish method, Russian shock training – it used to be called, creatine do's and don't's, you people are my people. Ever hear of Starzynski ( he passed away last year ) – one of the greatest coaches of all – time from Poland. Check out his work. Power Training for Athletics – check the web.
Anyone who is squatting in the 400's, bounding, working technique – and you're still below 48'………..
Take a deep breath brother! Milan Tiff, this goes way back – gave up lifting for ballet and studies of wildlife ( how they moved and such, this isn't me BS'ing either ). Sometimes a re-focus of our mental plan, ideaology, even getting into the spirituality of what we do and why………you ain't gonna' jump forever, but you'll never forget the feeling of that successful "happenin'" It just sounds like this JUCO athlete has the dream………so, take a deep breath and believe :angel: peace
