    It really depends on what your program looks like and where you are in your training cycle. Is your trainer referring to 15 seconds between straight sets or are you supersetting upper/lower or...

    I guess I have never really considered t-drill, Illinois, 5-10-5, etc. as footwork drills - I really like those drills to teach deceleration/acceleration mechanics. What I consider footwork drills...

    Footwork drills are largely a waste of time. Players that do footwork drills improve on the drills, but there is little if any carry over to the field.

    Much better. One thing I notice is that your knee and hip extension is out of sync. You're extending your knees before your hips which is throwing your balance off at the bottom. Push your knees...

    I would be careful with this one, most of the time with inexperience lifters it does the opposite of what is intended.

    My advice would be to go only as narrow as you can while keeping your elbows...

    Same as what? A Goblet squat?

    Front squats demand more mobility and stability of the upper back than goblet squats. If you can front squat with good form go ahead, but my guess is it will look...

    To me it looks like you have some sort of motor control issue. I'm guessing your breathing is all jacked up as well. Either way, you have no business doing back squats until you address the...

    Good stuff. I think a narrow stance hex bar deadlift is probably a more "functional" movement and it is sure as hell a lot easier to coach.

    krakkerz, what's your opinion on "sport" squats - a narrower base squat (feet shoulder/hip width) where the athlete goes down to parallel or just above? This is something strength coach Cal Dietz...

    I think the answer to this question is more complex than most here will lead you to believe. The most popular answer is, "squat as low as possible," but I think there is more to it than that. For...

    Sounds complicated and dangerous. When an athlete is worried about not breaking their jaw, they are not going to be able to use maximal effort on their jump.
