Age vs Vertical :: pics and vids

Decided to start a thread here that ill be posting all my pics and vids , to avoid them flooding my journal.

Here's the vid and a pic from today's jump session.

Pic is at least 32,5'' , actually my hand has an angle to touch the rim too , its probably 33'' as you can see from heels. Doesn't matter anyway...




And the video...

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daQv7IuqbpE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daQv7IuqbpE</a>

Let me know if you can hear the music , because i got a mail its copyrighted and it wont be available in some countries.
I played it and its ok here...
woot

Yes , thats the way...
I also wanted to do what you do with the 2 youtube channels , one for quality mixes and one for misc training jumping vids. But im too bored to mix my old stuff. Will be sick if i get the time.
But i probably wont , so im keeping it somewhere in the middle now , something between a training log and a dunking vids channel.
Anyway , thanks for the good words man, i really apreciate it...

Question for vag and adarq: What time do you guys train? Cause the courts around me are always packed when I get off work so there's no rim to jump to. God I wish I had a vertec...
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

This court is non-popular , the popular courts are packed here too.
Thats why you never see a quality court vid from me, coz i can never get a court for my own there! LOL
Even in this one , i also have to go "non popular hours" , like morning or noon. After 6-7pm , forget it...
Alternative : late night , after 11pm

i was doing my dunks in the day time, to avoid people at the courts, but recently ive started going at night.. courts close around 10pm every night, and games usually end around 9:30, so that gives me a good half hour by myself to do some dunks, so far so good, except for the rain that's been happening at night.

then i usually train outside late at night like 1am.

Best jump from today ( 20 June 2010 ) :

Probably PR, i knew it when it happened , verified it on vid afterwards.
Here's the screenshot , the guy who gave the lob is shorter than me , so i put me in the frame at the same horizontal court place for heels height reference.



If that's 3'' below wrist as i think , it is 10'9'' touch , 34'' RVJ , BAMMMMMMMMMM!

What do u guys think?

Ohhh, dont hype me more man!
Base of palm is 8'' , 4'' below is 35'' !!!

Ill stick with 34'' , wich is still UNBE-FUCKING-LEAVABLE for me!!!!

Wasn't able to reproduce it though , all other jumps were 32 to 33...

that's usually how PR's go though, for the vast majority of the time.

ya it looks about 3 maybe 3.5 or so.. 4 was pushing it :) but it definitely is 3-3.5".

age is about to get dominated by vertical.

Yup , i now think its realistic , i might get to [34''-35'' steady / 36''-37'' max] by the end of peaking&leaning down!
Also this week was pretty heavy:
Tuesday = squat max out ( +PR )
Wednesday = sprints + jumps
Thursday = sprints + jumps
Friday = DJs + REA workout.
And that session was only 40hrs after that last workout!

GNMNGHRHHGGGGGHHH@#$#$%#%#%$# , crazy shit!


BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM

LOLLLLLLLLLL , and thanks! :D

Try the damn c-porn-flakes , they do wonders!!!  ;D

Yes , dropping fat would make a big impact.
I already lost 1 to 1,5% , im ~16,5% now. But dont expect to see me ripped , my natural bodyfat is  in the 14% area. To go lower , i have to diet hardcore and i lose a lot of muscle/strength in the process.
Oh and one more thing , last year i peaked at 33'' , ~175lbs , ~13%bodyfat.  This year feeling of 33'' at 200lbs+/18%+ bodyfat was 100 times better , easy! :D
