MedBall Slam over hurdle onto box w/ @saquon .
For every action, according to Newton's 3rd Law of Motion (Law of Reaction), there is an equal and opposite reaction... The reaction force supplied by the ground is specifically called the ground reaction force, which is basically the reaction to Saquon exploding/pushing into the ground with every jump.
With this plyo jump variation, we are trying to increase the ground reaction - force production stimulus. As we know, Saquon is very advanced so we added the medicine ball slam to challenge his transition of his first jump. .
As he is over the hurdle, descending toward our cushion(later explained) he is picking up more velocity that is going to require more force production for him to jump up on to the box.
The point of this cushion is to give his proprioceptors a “heads-up” that it’s time for his fast twitch muscle fibers to fire and explode up onto the box right before he actually touches down to the ground. .
We’re trying to translate raw strength/power into force production.
