i thought you did great considering how much lower you were jumping than normal.. regarding our convo on live chat, nightfly needs to warmup way better.. need to get in much more dunks 10-12 or so during the warmup part of contest it seems, and really move around alot more powerfully, no sluggish movements.. sometimes part of waking oneself up is simply "acting awake".. if you hunch over/walk around slow, it can have a pretty bad effect on how much force you can create.. gotta walk around boss and powerful even if you feel like shit..

That's the problem i didn't do great because i was jumping lower than normal which is really bad.

AMEN! 100% agree. You need to be NASTY and WARM (your skin should burn of desire and "hunger"). The problem is - sometimes you just don't have it.

One thing I kind of do is to create a war in my body... like I literally voluntarily do that "fire" inside sometimes. You have to look at the rim and just think of all the work you put in to be there and think "hey, I deserve to be here, I have to break this fucking rim in half".

But, again, sometimes it doesn't work. The thing is to try this every time you do it so you can do it voluntarily from a point on.
