Progress Journals & Experimental Routines / 2019 Vert Comp
« on: January 09, 2019, 10:34:20 pm »
So I'm a competitive bastard. Even seeing other people at the gym makes me competitive and I think I do my best when I've got something to go up against. Is anyone up for a vert comp? I'm thinking test verts - train - test verts again - profit!

Thoughts?

I've titled it 2019 but I'm thinking more a 12 or 16 week thing.

EDIT-

VERT COMP 2019-

Nutrition & Supplementation / Pea & Rice Protein
« on: December 12, 2017, 10:41:11 pm »
I'm off all cows milk at the moment mainly due to skin issues that it causes which includes any form of whey. I do get sinus issues a bit more when I have a lot of dairy too but it's more the milk that's the issue. Anyway, just got an order of Pea and Rice protein from Bulk Nutrients called Earth Protein. It's chocolate flavour and aside from tasting like the earth itself it seems to be doing the goods. I've had egg white protein before which was super eggy, have looked at beef protein and some other non whey options but this is my first time trying it out.

Anyone else gone away from whey?

MOVIES & ENTERTAINMENT & SHeeT! / Icarus- Netflix
« on: October 30, 2017, 07:48:24 pm »
Has anyone seen Icarus? I watched it a couple of weeks back and then listened to Bryan Fogel on the Rogan podcast. So incredibly fascinating. The absolute control that they had over the athletes and they doping program is unbelievable. I mean I know professional athletes use PEDs. After watching this and listening to the interview I would pretty much doubt if any athlete is clean.

Pics, Videos, & Links / Chinese Oly Lifting Camp Videos
« on: June 05, 2017, 07:18:10 pm »
Have been following Diane Fu on IG for a while and she's at a Chinese lifting camp with plenty of champs and some WR holders training there. She's posting a ton of vids on her IG along with a heap of stories showing their training. Pretty interesting stuff.

Especially cool to see what they do with a lack of equipment. Case in point...

Basketball / NBA 2016-2017 Season
« on: October 26, 2016, 12:29:19 am »
Watching the SAS/GSW. Was looking forward to the excitement machine but there's something oddly satisfying about watching GSW getting pumped at home. 4th quarter and they're down by 28.

Also watched some of the CLE/NY game. I know it's the Knicks but Lebron is looking very good.

Nutrition & Supplementation / Exogenic Ketones
« on: July 14, 2016, 12:23:34 am »
Thoughts on ketones? I am coming across more and more guys going full keto but there seems to be a way to get some benefits without going low/no carb.

Put the price aside for the sake of this discussion.  Also, put aside that Paul Carter looks to be repped by the manufacturer. Just for the moment anyway.

Have been thinking about something like the anabolic diet for a while and this may provide somewhat of a nice balance. It's also not all about performance though as I've been reading a lot on the overall health benefits involved.

Take it for what you will but there's been some good stuff posted up recently.

Rose to Knicks:

This has me excited. Can the Knicks become a force again? I'm hoping this change of scenery and the "big stage" can bring D Rose back to his best.

Figured I'd put these here so I don't spam the other finals thread:

Injury, Prehab, & Rehab talk for the brittlebros / Pre Game Warm Up
« on: May 19, 2016, 09:52:40 pm »
For those guys who are playing what's your go to pre game warm up? I'm starting again next week and want to be able to do a decent warm up without looking like an NBA wannabe douche bag. I used to do a full comprehensive warm up back when playing a higher level but now it's a social game more than anything. Even so I'm getting older and want to make sure I'm ready to go and less likely to injure myself.  I'm usually at the courts about 10-15 prior to the game and have 3-5 mins on court prior to tip off. Cheers.

It seems like a few of us on here use IF as an eating structure. Thought it would be worthwhile to share what works best for you.I'm definitely interested to see what has worked for you best, even if you don't currently do it.  Things like:

When do you train? How does that affect your IF?
Different eating on training days vs rest days?
How long do you fast for?
How many meals do you eat?
What's the break up of your meals? I.e. do you carb backload, etc.

For me I usually train very early and am in the gym by 5.15am. I sip 15gs of BCAAs during and post w/o. First meal is around 2pm which means I've fasted for around 16-18 hours. At the moment I'm just making sure I get all my food in during that period which will generally be 3 meals fairly equally broken up. On rest days I sometimes drop the carbs from the first and/or second meal.

Instead of hijacking Maxent's log I thought I'd post this here. I'm in a similar situation to Maxent in that I've never dunked in a game on a fast break. I've tried quite a few times but have found that it's that last couple of steps that are problematic after such a long run up. I can seemingly get much higher off 2-4 steps but normally there's so much traffic in that situation that dunking is not an option (unfortunately I don't quite have Chris's VJ yet).

Any ideas on how to train the RVJ in this manner? Is it as simple as doing half and full court lay-ups and attempting a dunk at the end?

Also, reading through some old Todday material he cited hamstring strength and the inability to transfer force behind knee collapse (if I interpreted this correctly). I know this refers to bounding but I would imagine RSLVJ would be a similar issue.

Quote
Tons of guys have problems with the buckling of the leg when beginning bounding or bounding at max intensity, its usually caused by the hamstrings not being strong/powerful enough to transfer the force up to the hips

Again, is this as simple as training the pos chain more to prevent this from occurring or are there better methods?

So I'm going to get some lifting shoes. Purely for squatting and any other oly lifting that I do.
Not planning (at this point in time) to do any crossfit although I can't rule it out down the track.

Main question is:
- Does the heel height, and more specifically the height difference between the fastlift and adipowers, really matter? Is 0.1 of an inch going to make any significant difference? I can pick up a pair of fastlifts for $119-$180 whereas the adipowers are going to set me back nearly $300.

I've looked at the following shoes-   
- Fastlift 335
- Adidas powerlift
- Adidas power perfect
- Adidas adipower
- Reebok crossfit lifter
- Nike romaleos

I'm leaning towards the fastlift purely from a pricing and accessibility perspective. I can try them on at two different locations to get the sizing right, etc.

Have also just seen these ones which I've never heard of before but heel height for my height would be over an inch.

Also these just to confuse the matter further
http://www.weightliftingspares.com.au/product/sabo-weightlifting-shoes/

This is seriously a confusing area.

Long story short, are the inov-8 fastlift 335s a good shoe or is there a good enough reason to spend more on something else?
