    There is only one element of the above equation that really needs frequent variance, however.
    Would you please enlighten me?

    No.


    If you want to improve your jumping ability, go jump. If you want to improve the force of your jump, train the involved musculature in an effective fashion.
    There is no such thing as "power" to be developed, nor is there any sort of "explosive" trait to the body. There is skill and there is force output. Skill is absolutely specific and force output is absolutely general.
    Are you next going to tell me that all muscles are the same?



    Do you have a problem with clotting?
    What does increasing blood flow to an area have to do with clotting?



    Having the time is different than needing the time.
    And your point?

    High pulls. Easier to learn, less potentially harmful to your wrists and essentially what you're after: pick-a-weight-up-then-drop-it power. also, I think you should be deadlifting (and lifting in general) heavier. 66.7% is not enough weight on the bar IMO. Deadlifts were meant to be heavy, and so long as you're not rounding your back, your form should be good enough to handle 80+ %. this is assuming that you've been working on your form on deadlifts (learning the movement) for a 3-6 months, if not, disregard this and carry on. But mostly, I'd lift heavier weights all around. sets of 10 is bodybuilder stuff if you're not a neophyte.

    Something else to consider is sandbag shouldering, the grip and volume present may make it more similar to picking people up, and it's again easier to learn than cleans and poses less risks. I am a big fan of sandbag shouldering for conditioning. I shoot for 50 reps in 20 min and if I can do it I add more weight next time.

    Yes, I should somehow correct that in the routine I posted I guess.
    I think I was going about 80% of my 1rm for sets of 5 last day.


    Thank you for your other suggestions, I'll look into that.

    I'd think one-legged weighted squats would help with the pick-them-up-powah. But really if you can get where you can squat ~300lbs for reps you should be teh d34d1y.

    Hey chump. Before I critique I have to ask, have you looked into Westside training? I think it would suit your needs quite well. Even a bastardized form of it, like I was doing before if you remember, would work.

    Brute, nice to see you posting here.
    I've looked into Borris' routine/article.

    I am figuring out how to implement some of that.
    I want to rehab my shoulders and strengthen my knees more, as that is what I'm doing now.

    Okey dokey. My critique of your current routine is as follows:

    Leg day-I'd drop the 2 jump squats. Not worth the risk if you ask me.

    Chest day-Drop the fly machine and shrugs. Add lateral raises and either front, or bent over lateral raises. If you want you could do some plyometric pushups on this day. Do them first, like as part of your warmup.

    Back day-Drop the pulldowns. Add power cleans(much safer, just as effective and much more sport specific than the jump squats), start the workout with these.

    Thus ends my critique. :)
