Kenny Carrington: I am Kenny Carrington, the Director of Velocity Sports Performance. This is the workout with a pro D. C. Diva. What we are going to do is start off in the third segment of Explosive. We are on a Vertimax today and we are going to work on the lower body resistance of squat jumps. So, start it off, what we are going to do is no resistance. As you see Donna has a belt on right now ready for, when we do add resistance. So, she are going to have a feet and shoulder width position. She is going to do a nice little quarter squat jump, explode up as high as she can, landing back in that athletic position. So, we do five of those. So, with this next part we are going to add resistance. There are bands on to the side there's two different colors, it is red and white. We are going to use the red today and just hook right on to the sides of the belt. So, this is moderate resistance right now. So the same thing let's go continuously this time, as soon as you land, you're right back up in the air, five jumps as high as you can. Use your arms okay, and be careful those knees coming up five times. With this, we have got repetition and we have got resistance pulling her down, so, we have got to explode up through the resistance. Now, to make it to intense resistance, there are bands in the back that I would just pull out even further to add a resistance, so do you feel difference? Donna: Yeah. Kenny Carrington: Okay, now still we are going to do five more times. Go few little wider, there you go, five times continuous two, three four, five, good job. Now, we will take the bands off and give her a little rest, quick rest. Now you are going to do ten jumps right afterwards. So, we jump with resistance and then we are going to take the resistance off so just a way the body can adapt to that explosiveness. Let's go ten times, as high as you can. There you go, exploding up, good, and we give rest time and for sets or reps of these what we usually do is sometimes we will superset it with squats or superset it with the cleans that we just did earlier and then sets, we probably give about five sets, five to ten reps somewhere around that. That concludes our third segment of the Training with a Pro.
