Default Programming for vertical

Anybody have any insight as to how to program specifically to increase one's vertical? Exercises I can think of off the top of my head include:

.
  • Clean
  • Back Squat
  • Box Jump
  • Knee Jumps
  • Box Jumps
  • Kettlebell swings

Anybody have any programming suggestions? I was thinking something along the lines of westsides plans?

Depth drops and jumps, bounding, repeated broad jumps across a room. Westside makes people more explosive squatters, not necessarily jumpers.

kelly baggett has a vertical jump guide that's supposed to have a good record.
assess yourself, then program around that. Google it.

If you do not wish to buy Kelly Baggett's Vertical Jump Bible, at least go here and read his articles.
