here is another one, unfortunately they are all out at the other side of the city from me :/



But this one I stumbled upon while searching is actually fairly close to me.
This pic is way different from the court in Google maps, so it looks like they redid it recently in the same style as the one further above :)
About 20 min drive from me, will check it out next time I BBall on my peak jumping day

Dang this is a pretty nice outdoor court by Sydney standards! :D
Glass backboard  :derp:



new court, but no springs :/

Shoulder/cuffs really sore, really delayed DOMS!
Will need to cut back on the lower bodystuff on my Bball/Upper body day as my calves, legs and hips still feel achey and 50% recovered.
I think it's mostly the sissy squats. May have to move them to another day at that intensity/volume
I do have a planned deload coming up in 10 days time, so that will help

Found the school next to my house has 2 BBall rims, but they are both over 10 feet....
And the court is sloped.
But the yard also has a lot of monkey bars and other stuff where I can do some of my upper body stuff

Still looking for a court that has a 9'7-9'8" rim... there used to be one around here, but they knocked it down :/


Soft tissue work - lower body

bodyweight at home without shoes = 80+kg

BBall practice and jump training session at WLC outdoor courts - 1h 47 mins

10 mins dribble drills, 10 mins shooting drills
then high intensity moves, shooting and layups

Max effort Jump tests, and trick dunks on 8 feet netball rims after 40 mins

rotated sets between first 4, 1-2 mins rest
1) Continuous single leg jumps off a few steps - alternating legs x4  x 2 sets
2) Continuous backboard tap jumps in place - 2x4
3) Depth jumps off 20+ inches x 5 - 2 sets
4) Continuous approach jumps - max effort - alternating plants x 4 -  2 sets

5) Backwards run intervals to 90% speed - walk back to start recovery -  half court x 5
6) Sprint intervals 90% speed - walk back to start recovery - full court x 5

Sissy squat - 50% ROm x 20
double leg, bent knee over toes, soleus calf raise BW x80

Cooldown - backwards walking up 35 degree slope - 2 mins, 2.5 mins


Legs felt heavy, and hops were still down.
Felt like i was trying to muscle my jumps as a result.
Especially on one single leg jump where I tried to squat and straighten out my plant leg at takeoff :)
Feet/achilles felt much better on the sprints - stronger and stiffer - getting there.

Total loss so far - weight  24.2kg 53.4lbs  Waist 11.25 inches  BF% Tanita 12%

Dang my quads having been blowing up lately - I think from all the high rep knee over toes calf raises and sissy squats, plus weighted backwards walking at such a high frequency.
But the AMRAP SSB squats to near failure play a role as well :)
While in a small deficit.
Averaged 2600 calories this week, against a TDEE of 2800-2900

Been recomping well, but would like to get leaner, down to 75kg sooner than later.
So I'm going to tighten things up a bit, get average calories down to 2300.

progressive power layups as warmups, pretty much every dlrvj session, got my slrvj respectable.

when my lr-dlrvj was pretty much peaked, was kinda nuts one day when i started trying some l-slrvj lob dunks and was getting up around 35". blew my mind. then got me addicted to single leg jumping, because that speed component feels so incredible.

but ya, i just did progressively more intense power layups pretty much every warmup session. i knew when i was able to "nick" the rim on them, that i could start transitioning into my dlrvj warmup etc. just allowed me to get lots of slrvj reps in, relaxed/submax .. slow buildup over time.

pc!

I've been doing a lot of inbetween the legs layups off the dribble and lob off 1 leg, it just feels easier/smoother than off 2 legs, so that is helping the reps.
I just love the float the Nick Briz gets :)
I should start doing some windmill trick dunks of 1 leg on the 8 feet netball rims to help out the process.

Feeling tired - I get 9+ hours of bed time but most of it is just lying in bed with eyes shut :/
Sore all over, especially in my lower calves, glutes and biceps.
Achey back of heels.

Yeah I think I am doing too much for lower body 2 days before my peak jump session.
Legs do not feel as recovered from squats as they should by now.
Although the swelling from squats has gone.

Right now I have about 4 inch difference between 1 leg and 2 leg approach jump, which is pretty close by my standards.
I have never paid much attention to my 1 leg jump, off left.
Will try some of the technique cues in this vid and see if I can close up the gap even more.
Would be nice to have both go up in unison

Back in highschool, I recall being about 3-4 inches away from touching 10 feet off 1 leg, in the low 70kg area, just from playing school team BBall.
I'm about 2-3 inches lower now, but weigh 7+kg more.

damn. don't recall you doing them like that, nuts.

i never could get any good w/ them. only thing it gave me was hamstring tendonitis.. a few times. will absolutely never do them again. lmao. i love how it felt too (until the subsequent days).

have a poor man's glute ham from sorinex.. :<

Only felt like that for me on the first week, now it feels quite like a regular hamstring exercise

This guy is crazy and he does single leg ones for sets and reps :o

Still moderately sore all over, even my upper body, lats, I think from the stretched ISO holds

Soft tissue work - upper body, and lower

bodyweight at home without shoes = 80.3kg                   

BBall practice session at WLC outdoor courts -  71 mins

1) 10 mins dribble drills,
2) 10 mins shooting drills
3) 2 on 2 game halfcourt games till 55 mins
4) a few jumps and then practise jumps off left and R-L (off plant)

Only second time playing against people this year, so timing and skill was rusty...
Plus tight/achey upper body made shooting tough, but I did eventually start to get some buckets near the hop.
I probably should have posted up more, as I tend to play like a power forward, even though I'm short ala Charkles Barkley :)
And despite the fatigue I am quicker than most people so I should have used that.
Blocked one shot cleanly, wasn't even thinking, it just happened.

One guy commented after we finished, that I was really strong  8)
So yeah weight room strength is noticeable on the court

Legs felt like logs, so hops way down, like 4 inches.
Single leg jump felt good though, getting more effortless, and no pain.

---
Sit in bottom of narrow stance squat for 1min
reverse nordic type stretch - low enough to get torso/hips in a line
Sissy squat - down to 6 inch step -  2x25
Wall tibialis raise - BW 2x30
Single leg, maxed knee over toes soleus calf raise double leg BW x50
+15kg BW 2x30

The lactic acid burn was crazy... in hindsight I think 1 set of each is enough!

backwards walking up 35 degree slope +10kg in backpack x 2 sets = 2mins, 2.5 mins


stretched lower body

Resistance at the outdoor courts

3 level ext rotated band pull apart - to forehead, shoulder, sternum + star drill combo - light rogue band  - dual strands x 10 each, 20 secs rest between each axis

Doing these on a step does not bother my left shoulder
Dropped straight bar dips as it makes both my shoulders ache a bit

Back at home

Rotating sets between each exercise - 2 mins
A1) High angle rows to ribcage  - slight pause at bottom, explosive - barbell 20kg x12, 40kg x6,  50kg x1
explosive
52.5kg x7, x8 @RPE 9 (+2.5kg -2 reps)
45kg x9 @ RPE 10

Upped the weight 5% and it felt easier and I didn't drop as many reps as I thought I would.

A2) vertical wall ab wheel roll outs - pulling handles apart 2x30 with hold at top


Rotating sets between each exercise - 2 mins
B1) Barbell curl explosive - 20kg x6, 25kg x2,
27.5kg x11 @RPE 9  (+2.5kg -4 reps)
30kg x7 @ RPE 9 (+5kg -8 reps)

upper the weight from 25kg x 15, and it felt easier than expected, and not as many reps dropped.
I was expecting to get 6 reps...
So it looks like 50% of bodyweight x10 is not going to take long :)

B2) Prone trap front raise 45 degree incline, hold at top, controlled eccentric - plates 1.25kg x5,
with 3 count hold at top - 2.5kg x12, 3.5kg x8 @ RPE 8

Plank scapular pushup - externally rotated arms BW x50 (+8 reps)
Single arm overhead press - max extension - neutral grip 5kg plate held at bottom handle for max instability - 3 count hold at top x15
45 degree incline - reverse grip dumbbell bench 2.5kg x30, 3.5kg x 20

Amazing serratus anterior stress, and no left shoulder pain.
Pretty like an uppercut punch so it makes sense.
This is a keeper and will replace all my other serratus anterior moves, but the wall ab wheel rollups, I still like as they warm me up as well.
Also hits the other pressing muscles without shoulder pain, but remains to be seen if this will stay as I increase the weight...

Elbow on knee external rotation alternating arms/sets without rest, 1.25kg x5, 2.5kg x5, 3.5kg 2x15

Pullover stretched ISO hold across bench - straight armed - 3.5kg dumbbells x 1min  - ugh that was too heavy
Incline flye stretched ISO hold 45 degrees, straight armed - 2.5kg plate x 1min

Moderately drained from yesterday.
Achey all over but no major DOMS, surprising...

My lower back had been beat up the last few times, which I thought was due to the Kettlebell Swings, so I stopped them for one session, and still got it.
Redid them yesterday and no lower back issues, hmm... I'm hoping Jefferson curls will help here as well.
As you did round your back a lot during BBall and jumping in general, and landing in unbalanced positions while doing trick dunks etc

Both heels achey, but much better than last night.
Knee over toe calf raises certainly help.

Sub-maximal explosive squats -
77.5% of e1RM - 4+ mins rest
105kg 2x4

rest 7 mins
AMRAP 105kg x9 @RPE 9 PR by default for this bar
100kg x8 @RPE 8

Weights felt heavy on my back so I stopped at 115kg for the warmup singles.
And overall squats were hard today, probably due to fatigue from yesterday

Still 105kg x9 is stronger than the 110kg x6 I did last session, and with maybe a rep in the tank.
So I'm likely good for at least 110kg x7, and probably closer to 8.

105kg x9 @RPE 9 = 135+kg e1RM
Hopefully by the time I hit a 150kg e1RM I will be grabbing the 9'10" rim off vertical...
