What are we basing our jump squat percentage from ? 1rm jump squat ?

Hi Catalyst. I don't have jerk blocks or a power rack. Could anyone suggest an alternative exercise to the jumping squats that I could do? Cheers!

% of back squat

Use about 25% of your best back squat and do a full back squat with a jump at the top. Do the reps continuously (i.e. land and immediately sit into the next squat).

Cheers Greg!

Hi Greg and Steve,

I'm noticing a pattern for the complexes done off a percentage. It seems as though we are to take a percentage of the first lift of the complex but it looks like here we should go off of the jerk here. 80% of my FS exceeds my measly jerk.

That is correct you will take 80% of your jerk.

Should this weight for the jumping squat be challenging? Based off previous comments it was 25% of heaviest racked back squat, which I felt I could have done all 5 sets continuous and unbroken.

The jump squats will be lighter if you don't have jerk blocks or a cage to perform them in.
Robert 2014-07-25
Steve- So if I have a rack with the safety bars then use the prescribed percentage from your back squat?
Steve Pan 2014-07-28
Robert - Yes.
