From reading various posts over the last few weeks I thought I would add this to the mix for comment and consideration, an attempt to train at various positions along the force velocity continuum to ensure that all aspects of strength are trained concurrently, particularly in light of posts in reference to post activation potentiation and the development of lower body power and strength.
Select from any of the following as a primer or post the next category a la my favourite all time training video of Swiss (from memory) Shot putter Werner Gunthor (spelling ?) (see you tube),
4 – 6 sets of 6 reps:
Depth jump variations; to vertical jump, to horizontal jump, onto another box
Box Jumps from standing or seated on another box
Repeat hurdle or box jumps
Knees to feet jump variations; with a bar in a back squat, snatch or clean start position or with DB’s in hands or unloaded with arm swing or without ie; hands on hips or behind neck
Super set this with
Speed/Strength (25% – 40% loading – light and fast) 4 – 6 sets of 6 reps
Select from any of the following:
Blocks with bar set at knee height; cleans or snatches or pulls
Reactive jump squats with bar or kettle bells (KB)
DB or KB swings
Strength/Speed (60% – 80% – actual or attempted acceleration) 6 – 8 sets of 3 to 6 reps
Select from any of the following:
Snatch or Clean or Pulls from the floor
Band Dead lifts
Maximal Strength (80+% – Marsh protocols, or waves, clusters, 3 week loading cycle, changing each session)
Choose one from each of the two categories:
Squat options and Hamstring/Lower Back options: whatever you have available in your gym, in our gym we can do the following:

Damian Marsh Protocols
Either within the one workout or over a period of weeks, changing each week
Set 1: 1 x 6 @ 77.5% – 82.5%
Set 2: 1 x 3/3 @ 82.5% – 87.5% .
Set 3: 1 x 2/2/2 @ 87.5% – 92.5%
Set 4: 1 x 1/1/1/1/1/1 @ 92.5% – 97.5%
