Coaching Tips: Scale load and movements to match your current fitness level. The first workout is there to get power out of fatigued legs and work on the different squatting techniques. The second workout should be thought as nothing but box jumps. The initiation of power from the hips is the same for all movements. All box jumps are to be done with hands behind your head. Think hips, hips, hips.

The 40/40 sets are 50/50 physical and mental. If you can swing the pendulum to just the physical, the exercises are much easier to complete. In other words, if you can over come the voices in your head to let go and rest,the exercises are just that, exercises.
