Vertical jumps are a great way to train explosive power for squats.  Another very good option for training power generation is successive horizontal jumps or some contrast training.

I do jumps for 8-12 weeks at a time on days I squat. It works great, but you have to be careful with volume as you can very easily and quickly wreck your knees. You might also try depth jumps, Simmons is a huge proponent of them, says they were his main tool for training explosiveness, vertical height, and 40 speed.

I did them first just 5x5 with 30 seconds rest but 5x3 is wiser, after the jumps I would squat, but when I did jumps I didn't quarter squat into them I always went all the way down, because if I didn't it would irritate my knees.

Hey Nervermind,

Vertical/box jumps are a great exercise but as MathiahM said, you do need to be careful with your knees. And as you said you're feeling pain, it's probably not a good idea to do box jumps; but if you would like you can do some stair climbs/runs... That's probably less taxing/aggressive on the knees and then you get a good cardio workout.

Hey Nevermind,

How did you go along with it? did you like it?

I personally love this exercise! On the ground or suspended, it's also great for the abs! If it is suspended it's even better, it makes you brace your core and stabilise the whole body to stop it from swing around... If you have those TRX ropes in your gym you should totally give it a try.

At this point we are no longer discussing an exercise for explosive leg power, we're into a conditioning exercise, or a warmup

No biggie, he wanted a warm up exercise, and mountain climbers are also good mobility work

They're included in Joe D's agile 8 and limber 11 warmup sets
