Recommended BSU speed for the BIG VERT ME training

    I’m struggling with doing 20 BSU in 30s like the runners ME training in the BIG VERT training plan calls for.
    The 15-20s for 20 SJS feels reasonable but I can’t even get close to 30s for the 20 BSU. More like 45-50s for 20 BSU. Anything faster than that and I can’t do them strict any more.
    So, are you guys actually managing 20 BSU in 30s? Anyone with a video of that so I can see what it’s supposed to look like? 🙂

    I could be doing them wrong, but I don’t pay attention to time during the work, just during the rest period.

    My sets are definitely closer to 45s, especially once considerable weight is added. I always make sure my form is perfect on these, so go as slow as needed to keep good form.

    My understanding is to REST 30 seconds between rounds. The actual work of doing BSU shouldn’t be hurried.

    What’s BSU and SJS?

    BSU = Box Step Ups
    SJS = Split Jump Squats

    Thanks for the info guys.
    I’ve been experimenting a little to see if I can speed things up bit but it feels like I’m getting a better workout by slowing down and maintaining my form. So I’ll continue with my slower repetition rate.
