Squats - 4 sets of 8 @ 135#, 3 minutes of rest after each set
Natural hamstring curl (GH style) - 4 sets of 6, 2 minutes rest after each set
Box-squat jumps (18" box) w/ 10# DB in each hand - 2 sets of 5 jumping up, 2 sets of 5 jumping out; 2 minutes of rest after each set
Depth jumps (18" box) - 4 sets of 4; 20 seconds rest after each jump, 2 minutes rest after each set
I was going to do this yesterday, but a pickup game of basketball (3 on 3) sprang up. I had a height advantage and the post moves were clicking. 7 close games... my team won the series 4-3.
Workout thoughts: the curls were pretty weak, and were minimally controlled negatives with a significant push-off at the bottom. The squats felt pretty good while still being taxing. I'll move up 5-10 pounds for next week. The jumping felt great.
