Bryan, what kind of plyos do you mainly focus on? Do you do several different plyo exercises with supersets for them, or do you give yourself full recovery before completeing the next plyo? I’d also like to ask you of your opinion on a situation of mine, I was training for the decat at ULL and due to misguidedness of scholastic eligiblity, i had to stop. I was wondering if i should begin training again to compete unattached at a few meets. I’m 22, and it’s been almost a year since i’ve done explosive training like that, but i have been competing in triathlons. What advice would you be able to give me, if any?

Bryan: I’m working on a Vacation Bible School program for our church and would like to tell the kids more about you. How old were you when you were saved? What is your favorite Bible verse? If you could tell kids at a VBS program something, what would it be? I’ve read your web site and see that prayer is a big part of your life. Yea. :) Thanks and PRESS ON!
