200327 Weekly update
Since the outbreak is happening Everywhere around the world. Especially UK USA and Aust and school being suspended, all the over sea student is returning to hk.  with in 2 weeks. our infected rate doubled from 1xx to over 3xx.   As I suspected earlier, 2nd wave hit is on.  So this week i decided not to go out to jump again.

Monday Hang Clean
Tuesday Stiff Leg Dead lift
Wednesday Bench Press
Thursday ... I went out to jump... I know.. i just..... went out with mask
Friday Suppose to squat heavy but I end up doing Seated Explosive Squat (it is not very explosive, i went from going on my toe, to later on elevated my foot and slap it down before going up)

Something I done in my Jump on Thursday, MY plant is always LEFT RIGHT, since my left leg is stronger and possibly shorter, I also lean on my left when i squat heavy.  I am also a right hander, so my right arm is always stronger, I believe i measured my bicep when i was a kid in high school, and the different is like 1 cm or so. 

Now i always know that LR plant dunker use left hand (rear hand).....but i never brother to care since i know those who jump high enough use any hand. 
but today, a High jump coach suggest me to try using my left hand.    so I did. 

10 yrs of jumping and changing hand sure is weird, it is as if i am Swinging up with my right in the air and Reaching with my left in mid air... instead of a fluent motion. This will take some practice.  I can still touch the rim slightly.     The professional high jump coach also suggest me to Drive in from the RIGHT side. instead of the left side (which i had been doing for years)  guess this will be the next step.

Now since changing hand is not as easy as I thought, how about keeping my right hand arm reach, and change my plant to Right Left leg.  So i did that a few time on a low rim.... and same awkward feeling. 

Now I know changing things around is a big no no as many member suggested here.   I do like to try things out and see how my body react. Often my so call stand still leap does involve a mini step... I know... i am leaning on my left and reaching on my right.... it just seem... a little weird if u think about it..

200319 I went outside again
Like LBSS suggested, jumping once a week outdoor is too little. So i decide to go out again.
Warm up with Depth drop and went right into stationary jump at rim 3, I am getting over the rim easy.

Btw, I did 6 x 500m sprint yesterday with my kid, intead of doing the 30 min indoor bike.   (along with a few set of Hang clean during lunch)
Surprising my leg is not too sore today.  May be i am getting use to the daily cardio (had been about 15 days already)  or may be running 6 x 2.5 min is less taxing than biking for 30 min.

let me look at the my Garmin cal to compare.
Bike 30min  = 261-310cal
500mx6 cal =  30*6 = 180cal
jog 30min = 344cal

um... i dont know. base on the number sprint burn less cal...(During the exercise), it should burn more after.

Back to today feeling,  The stationary jump felt good getting high.  I played with the arm swing a little.   testing if i should squat down when the arm is swinging down from the front. vs squat down during the arm swing down from the back.  the result is similar.  I have a feeling that  during a actual running jump, the squat down actually happen when my arm is point from the back and swining down from the back.  (I got nothing to do during the jump, so my brain start having this idea lol)

At the end of this session,  I did some 1 step jump (AKA the LBSSS method if i remember right), I have not done that for long time,  doing it today felt a little different in a good way.
I actually feel like i am Loading the spring and jumping during the 1 step jump.   (i dont remember have this feeling before)

lets hope me knee is healthy, my muscle is less sore. and continue what i am doing.

Mean while, every Asian in American is facing racist attack because of the virus.  To make things worse... American GOV is telling everyone mask does not work.
And when Asian who had knew what Asia has been doing since 2 months ago... they already have some mask stored at home.   When they wear mask to go outside... they can attacked...
this is just sad to see...

For those who read my journal.  I just want to let u guys know that.. according to Hong Kong expert (with SARS experience)  Mask is a must to keep your safe.  It has been working in HK.
Those place who does not wear mask is taking a big hit.  (this is base on factual data of what has happened in the last few weeks.

IMHO, that plan doesn't have enough jumping in it if your goal is still to dunk.

Thanks LBSS... really appreciate your feedback, that is exactly what I had in mind, last friday... when i saw squatting....too little jump.. then i check this thread and saw your reply.
first the technique or the Feeling of jump need reps, yet too many reps hurt my knee..  so..anyway.. has been playing with fire all this year already.

Today is Monday, I am suppose to go jump.    But i got a little Running nose and body pain.    start to worry about that virus thing.  If i got it, whole family need to be isolated affecting colleague and everyone near by.

Not sure if i should limit myself from outdoor training.  In Hong Kong, infected case from within seems to go under control, however, new case enter from oversea is on the raise.  People who traveled outside of HK in pass 2 weeks, returned and turn into confirmed case....  (this might be the 2nd wave of attack for HK)

mean while.. Europe and America is being attacked.  My bro told me this very morning all school is suspended.  (it has been suspended for HK for 2 months almost.)

200310 No improvement, just stuck at the same spot
No surprise and nothing new to the above statement.

I had started to try my best to preform 30 min of Indoor Bike daily (beside the run with kid night).  I had done it for about 9 times nows.  I hope this can help me lose the fat on my tummy.

beside that, instead of random lifting/jump over the weekday lunch.
I decide to do the following
Friday = Squat Heavy (I just did a 3 plate squat x 5 last Friday) and becomes real sore on the weekends
Sat and Sun = rest day
Monday = Rim jump and jumping plyometric in random
Tuesday = Uppbody or core workout (bechpress and shoulder work etc.. once again pretty random with the stuff i have in my office)
Wednesday = Hang Clean ..
Thursday =  ???? still thinking...  may be 40 min of Stretching ?  (any suggestion for me? Update: i end up doing Hip Thrust with the barbell)
Friday = Squat to the max again.

Actually i am watching so much tv daily with the kid.. i should dedicate all my tv time with stretch, but this is easily said than done...

that is what i had in mind right now.... and is lunch time on a tuesday.. so i guess i will go bench myself now ... (yesterday rim jump session is boring.. and my knee is sore now also)

200304 Training outdoor resumed with mask on

I am out door jumping once or twice a week now, the other days i will remain indoor doing squat/hangclean/deadlift or bench press.

95% of the people wear mask daily now.  Kids still remain stuck at home with out school until mid April.
Every one started to have Google Class room or online meeting.

As of today Hong Kong is racked no.11 with 101 infected case.   

country like Italy, Japan and Korean Sky Rocket.   I saw the news that Canada/USA pal is stocking up on food and tissue paper too?

We had already done that in Hong Kong, people buying tissue paper like they all have a bad diarrhea attack lol... Rice is sold out along with food and etc. 
People are just scare and over react.   Everything is ok now, in HK... but other places seems to just begin. 

If you ask me, stock up on Mask...  dont worry about food or tissue paper.  Mask is still limited as of today.

Jump class from the track coach resumed.  But since my kid remain stuck at home 5 days a week, I spent my weekend with them outdoor as much as possible instead of go to Jump class for my own sake.

BTW... i had followed this Knee over toe guy on instantgram..  seems like alot of people doing their weird looking exercise.
Ultimate flexibility with strength...  and got to wear those short pants to dunk lol.

I wonder if any one know about them.

Thanks for the message Andrew.  I keep up with ur post on ur instang usually.

200220 First outdoor tranining in a month or so.
Thanks Andrew.  I ran 30min with my kid outdoor with mask on first the first time in months.
Not sure if it is safe... But we did it anyway.

Shortage of Mask is crazy...people start to buy out rice/tissue paper and all sort of sanitizing stuff .

School has been suspended for 2 months and it is unclear when will be resumed.
Online study is starting to happen...

Seems like beside China, Japan is taking a hit also. 

Stay alert, one infected dude can spread this like wild fire.

200211  Flu Out break Hit Hong Kong,  I am still around.

This may possibly the longest time i had not update my training log.
After over 6 months of political struggle, the whole city turned up side down and it is no longer what it used to be.

Just when u thought, the protest die down and lost.... China Flu outbreak hit us.
And just like before. The local gov refuse to protect it citizen.   
Clearly Leader in China is in control of all decision locally.  So simply said, we are fucked.

Enough of the background of why i had not update my training log. 

I had stopped all outdoor training and stopped heading to public gym. 
Lucky to me.. few months ago.. I setted up a some lifting stuff in my office, and now, at least i have my private Rack and barbell... to keep me moving.

I continue to squat, hang clean, TRX and stretch an hour per day randomly.

not like i am going to jump outside any time soon.

Out break is getting worse day by day.

Police had turn in to uncontrolled army going against University students, general public and reporter,  lying everyday on tv to justify their action..

191101  I now have my Own Squat Rack

2 yrs ago, i went to learn Olifting with a coach 1on1 at the park, he brought a set of Olifting barbell and plate and teach me how to lift in the park for months.
Since then.. he got banned from the park and his equipment is stuck at home.

2 weeks ago... a drunker from 2011...called me... after seeing my Commercial on Train Station.  He had not called me for at least 2 to 3 yrs.  I responded... Yo man.. u called the wrong number by mistake...  and he said... NO man.. i am looking for you ...

His told me he got injured his back and had stopped jumping for many yrs.. now he added like 40 lbs on himself.... He saw my Commercial.. and... he want to train again..
It just happen he now live very close to my office... for 1 months....

And...at the same time... I ... took like 2 months off.. due to busy office work.

Seems like.. this is the right time, the right moment with everything aligned.   I had always wanted to set up a gym in my office. and the o-li coach had told me many time.. he would like to put his plate in my office...  But i never took the time to set things up...   With that retired dunker contacting me.  With those Plate and barbell around the corner...

now is the time to kick start things again.
My Gym pass in public Gym expire in 2020 July.
I don think I need to renew any more.

i now have Rack, IWF barbell, bench (flat only), and over 200kg of plates.  with 4 low rims....all under 10 foot....DUnk or DIE?

and i am near 40 yrs old.

190912 Recovered from Pulled Trap/Shoulder

Sept 1 Sunday, I had an hour of Explosive Hi pull and squat.  My shoulder felt really sore which I suppose is normal since i have not done hipull for long time and that Trap muscle is rarely use.
I continue to train through that soreness doing chair jump, med ball throw and plank the next few days.... and the pain never went away and got serious.   7 days later, I just squat for 20 min and spend the rest of the time stretching myself. 

ON my 8th day.. i finally decided to see Chinese Bone doctor... went for 2 days and fixed my muscle on my 3rd day.   
So it took about 10 days almost... the pain is still there but much better now.

Today is Thursday and is my first day resumed lunch training (went Sprinting with my girls yesterday)  Only did 4 set of chair jump and 3 sets of Push / reverse push up.

A friend came to visit me at lunch to chi chat.... I find it very hard to do chair jump without focus. 
unlike push up or any other lift... this Chair jump require me to fight against gravity in an Extreme Explosive manner.  I am doing a mini hop before jumping on the chair hoping to gain reactive strength.  However....even if i am focusing 100%  I don think i am able to preform to my max....  now that i am chi chating with a frd... i dont think I am trying as HARD as I should...

 :uhhhfacepalm:
or.. may be like Andrew often said... Dont over think and JUST do it..
screw the focus... Just do it. lol
