    I understand the the weight progression is easier and more predictable with s barbell. I'm just wondering if their is a big difference between the two as far as effectiveness goes.
  • Difference between dumbbell squats and barbell

    Assuming that the weight being used is equal. Is there any difference as far as effectiveness goes with holding the weight in my hands instead of on my back?

    Right, I always go below parallel while going heavy 80%+. I'm wondering if I should do full speed squats as well or if a half squat would be more beneficial in regards to RFD training for a vertical...

    I take it you mean 60-70%. Should I do full squats with a slow descent and then explode up or should I do fast 1/4 or 1/2 squats never going below parallel?
  • Confused over what percentage to use for dynamic effort

    So I've done a lot of reading about what percentages to use for dynamic squats. My main goal is to increase RFD and I've noticed percentages from 40-60% and 60-70% for squats. I think the higher...

    Sure I'd love to see your templates if you don't mind. As for the trap bar, I just deadlifted with the lower handles 325lbs and I weigh 155lbs. So a little over 2x body weight.

    Why do you guys recommend trap bar deadlifts? I have access to one but I don't use it. Do you go heavy with it or use 40-60% 1rm and go fast?

    Box squat vs speed deadlift

    Which exercise do you guys think has the best carryover to vertical jumping? I can't do Olympic lifts because I don't have a coach or access to rubber plates either. I want to incorporate a dynamic...

    It's from Kelly Baggett the guy that wrote the vertical jump bible. Basically you alternate between strength/mass cycles and power cycles. I'll copy and paste the work out below.

    2x5 at 5rm vs 3x3 at 5rm?

    Just curious what the difference is as far as how that impacts your CNS. Is doing 3x3 with your 5rm less strenuous than 2x5 with your 5rm? I ask the question because I'm following a 4 week phase...

    If I use a narrower stance like I would if I was jumping, wouldn't that take away my posterior chain work? I've experimented in the past with box squats and unless if I go wide, I feel it...

  • Vertical jump( more muscle or more strength)
