Default Kelly Baggett

I know there was a discussion before on Kelly Baggett but the dude needs his own thread in the speed and agility forum.

I highly recommend that you read every article he has written and read the Vertical Jump Development Bible or No Bull Speed Development.

And WHY did you not post this at the beginning of my football training?

Thanks much for this. I've got some work to do!

I've read (and own) the Vertical Development Bible. Looks really solid and well put together. I plan on giving it a spin after I get my back squat up some. Or maybe later this summer.

I've also got the Vertical Jump Book, and have been following the bodyweight progressions. Initially I was also following the novice plyomterics program, but I got sore feet and gave up.

My assesment of the program to date...
Positives:
Simple message, well laid out and explained.
Good variety of single leg progressions in bodyweight program.
I got stronger.

Negatives:
If you do the workouts in full they tend to be a bit long (at least for me) - definitley over an hour of training.
You are left to your own devices to cover upper body training (makes sense, given the theme).

I've been reading a lot of his articles lately. A lot of good information.

Things I've known but now a bit clearer to me:
-I have "Bad Feet"
-I have not put enough running time in as a youth and now working on catching up.
