    I read a tiny bit on EFTS the other day from Jpeg, his suggestion is box jumps are not really much more than a test of hip mobility UNLESS there is vertical dissplacement of the hip. (the box is higher than your hips)

    I am now condsidering some kind of experiment looking at the comparison of box jumps to say Hi-Pulls or some other movement aimed at force rate production like a dynamic Squat.
    In agree with the box jumps. I work with power shrugs working up through sets of lighter weight to heavier weights of 3 reps and finish when I hit a weight I can not leave the floor with. Would do the same with trap bar jumps if I had a trap bar. It allows me to work through all ranges of power development and it is fun too. I also like broad jumps for distance over box jumps though mobility helps with both just a lot less with the broad jump.

    I keep away from tricep kick backs expect when training with Trent. Also ultrawide benching kills my shoulders.

    Finger curls. I grew tired of the smell. Also, upright rows, shoulder press, bench press, due to shoulder problems. Lunges are a thing of the devil that I did several times early on....but have no real wish to re-visit that nightmare.

    I avoid squats cuz they're bad for your knees and deadlifts cuz they're bad for your back. I avoid bench cuz a friend of a friend tore his pec once and i avoid press because bench works better. I also avoid all dumbell and machine exercises because someone said barbell ones are better.

    Deep dips give me a slight niggle in my right elbow..I don't necessarily avoid the exercise though, just be quite careful with them.
