    CCJ, you referred to the fact that doing deads helped you a lot as far as VJ goes a while back. are your talking about SLDL or just regular deadlifts?

    In a nutshell

    Get stronger, teach your body to apply this strength with speed, boost the stretch reflex and improve skill.

    1) main sport exercises with added resistance - jumping with weighted vest

    2) Assistance exercises
    A - maximal strength - ie squats, deadlifts, overhead presses, core etc
    B - Rate of force developement - olys, speed squats, med ball overhead throw jumps, pushpresses and jerks etc
    C - DynamicStrength - light jumpsquats, weighted plyos, medball overhead throw jumps
    D - Stretch shortening cycle - plyos, depth jumps, alttitude drops, power jerks, medball again etc

    Eccentric strength as well -> depth jumps, alttitude drops

    I don't recall saying that, but they all help, they strengthen the hip extension muscles. But a powerlifter style deadlift is less useful.
    The snatch grip deadlift is best in terms of foundational strength in the hip extension muscles. Because you "squat" the weight up rather than pull on the bar in a powerlifter style deadlift. Also the ROM is longer

    Romanian deadlift is good too. Add some snatch/clean pulls for the speed strength aspect as well.

    Go up on your toes as well on all of em, might as wlel work the calves while your at it

    Also where do low intensity plyos -- bounds, hurdle hops, possibly standing TJ fit in?
    Dumbell swings would be with B or C? Seem sort of like med ball throws, but you don't get to release.

    Snatch high pulls, that Chad Ikei clip has it, he even explains it
    Although pulled it to the sternum would be considered medium, high is like shoulder to chin height - you have to lean back though to get it up there. Basicly it's like doing a powersnatch with a weight heavy enough so it doesn't go all the way up. No arm pulling either, let the bar float up there from leg/hip power.

    would be more B, no quite fast enough for C.
