Vert Shock Diary – Episode 3: First results after week 2

Hey guys and welcome back to my thirdentry in this video log series about my eight week Vert Shock training program Thanks for tuning in and if you haven't watched the two previous videos stop this video right now and watch those first so that you are really up to date! So week 2 of Vert Shock is behind me and the good news first: This time my body felt fresh enough to make a few videos showcasing my progress So a little patience and you will see it at the end of the video But first I want to talk about week two a little bit: So week 2 starts and ends with a day of rest in between there are five consecutive days of workouts.

But that sounds worse than it is Because workouts are spread around in a way so that each part of the body has enough time to rest So the first twodays were all about jumping So a lot of plyometric exercises which I already knew from the first week then the first day The third day was all about static core strength And days four and five and involved sprints and other explosive strength exercises So a little sidebar about that core strength workout on day three So I think I mentioned it in mylast blog post but I really hate planks I don't know somehow I have no tolerance for strength endurance exercise at all So when I first looked through Vert Shock I was really happy to see that there were no planks but turns out I was wrong they're stillthere, there just disguised under another name Theyre called body holds! But thirtysecond holds are actually not that bad So I think I can tolerate that if it means Ican dunk in the near future Overall I have to that I'm feeling a lotbetter than last week So I'm still a little sore but I'm definitely adjusting and it's getting better each day Alright moving on to the interestingpart I've made a few videos showcasing my progress So check it out! Alright guys to freshen up your memoriesthat's what my vertical jump looked like before Vert Shock it was actually okbut I definitely missed something between three to five inches for a dunk And that's the way it looks right now And when I'm jumping without a basketball it looks really promising But this way jumping is a lot easier because you canreally use your hands to accelerate upwards So right now I just don't havethe technique to also jump that high when I have to dribble a basketball but anyway it's really close already absolutely happy with the improvementsafter two weeks of Vert Shock And I think it's only a matter of time before I throw down my first dunk! This is it for this week But before I say goodbye I want to use theopportunity and promote my blog a little bit Its over on www.
