    I just got the Underground Guide off of a buddy of mine (he purchased II recently and loves it), and I'm not certain how to perform a couple of the exercises. In particular, I'm not sure I understand how to perform the Stand Up drills or the Knee to Standing Jump.

    With the knee jump, is the point to jump directly to standing or to jump to a semi-squat and stand from there? What confused me is that the second picture shows Ross in a semi-squat. The semi-squat would also make the Star Jump variation less complex.

    With the Stand Up drills, am I to focus on jumping to standing as fast as possible? For instance, with the Lying Stand Up drill, should I focus on exploding to a sit-up, jumping my legs under me into a squat position, then squatting as fast as possible?

    I love the book and plan on getting NG and II, but not until I at least get some value out of this one and I'd really like to work with these exercises. Thanks for any help!

    Excellent idea, I had completely forgotten about that option. Thanks.

    Comparing Underground Guide to II, NG, and the DVD is not a fair comparison.

    You really need to get the other stuff.
