Buddy just dropped off 100lbs of mooring chains for me, can't wait to hit the gym for chained benches, dips, pushups and pullups

Guaranteed to get some wtf looks walking into my gym with mooring chains lol.

I'm no S&C coach, but I work and am friends with a few, and I think you should build a baseline strength first. Then go into plyos. Squat jumps, explosive half squats, box jumps, depth jumps, sprints, etc. The olympic lifts are too complicated to learn without a coach- time you can spend on working explosive strength.

Walk in all g-code wearing the chains as a necklace & keep the shades on the whole time

Been working with a new trainer lately, we've been working on getting me squatting without having to be standing on 5lb plates. I wasn't capable of squatting without my heels raising. Been doing tons of calf stretches, jumping ,knee bending, and ankle turning exercises. Tried it out today without plates and did 3 reps @ 245, it felt different, but manageable. My 3 rep max with the plates was 315, so i've got a bit to go but should be caught up in a few weeks.

For the person who asked about jumping, there's basically 2 ways to do it
* Off the balls of your feet, and using your calves. Great for calf development
* Off your heels, and using your quads. Go in the squatting position, hold for 5 seconds, jump using your heels + quads, jump onto your platform, land in squatting position, hold for 5 secs, stand up.

Pretty much any boating/marine supply store will have mooring chains.

Been doing loads of Turkish get ups lately. Improving =D

Plyometric days are always the hardest for me. My whole body is pretty much dead afterwards.

If you dislike weights all over the map; avoid Golds Richmond.
