Took it kind of easy today -- mostly core work and skipped the plyos. I found my ankle weights the other day, so need to start using those on my flutter kicks on the bosu. And, for the first time ever, I saw someone else at the gym doing an extreme angle iso squat. It was a trainer who says he does it for explosive strength. :-) I haven't done them for a bit, so it will take my shins awhile to get used to them again.
There are some good musing about training and practices by Paul Yetter on this blog: http://createperformance.blogspot.com/. Some of his sets I thought Patrick might like. I saw one I might adapt for the HIT forum.
