Ummm. Faster, stronger, quicker, better jumpshot and he says he's jumping higher than before? I'm excited to see him play again!

Not sure where to ask this but I'll try here :)

How much sleep do you guys get on average per night (or day KF lol)? I know I don't get enough as I'm a borderline insomniac but I was curious as to how much your lack of sleep affects your recovery times. Does it matter if its all at once or broken up? Can you sleep too much?

I've done a little reading on REM sleep and the like but would like to hear from your guys actually experiences.

Hey guys, guess it's time I started one of these. I started lifting back in April of this year and was lifting pretty regularly til I pulled my groin 2 weeks ago. Took some time off to heal and reevaluate and found this place. I started back last night with a workiyt based loosely on Jukebox's Project Vertical program. I'm skipping his conditioning phase however since Ive been lifting regularly for a few months.

Age: 25
Height/Reach: 5'10"/7'6"
Weight/BF%: 186lbs/13%

Short term goals are 36" SVJ, 45" RVJ. Weight goals are whatever it takes to get to aforementioned vert.

Long term goals are to see if I can reach 40" SVJ, 50" RVJ. I fully expect this to take some time.

My current stats as of last night were 30" SVJ, 39" RVJ which are slightly down from my PRs of 32/41 set a few weeks ago. I chalk this up to my two weeks off (weak/bad movement efficiency). Best squat PR was 360x3.

Injury history: minor ankle sprain freshman year of HS (missed 2 days of practice), small tear left MCL beginning of junior year (no surgery, crutches for a couple months, no activity/exercise 6 months), various pulls/strains from being a guy and doing dumb stuff lol!

Monday Oct 29, 2012

200x8, 250x8, 300x8, 320x8, 200x6. Struggled a bit on the last two 320lb reps, form suffered.

135x8x2, 155x8x2. First time deadlifting, form sucked but will get better. Low weights til then.

Step ups:
4x8 w/ 35lb weight

Kettlebell swings:
2x6 35lb bell

Bench press:
205x12, 225x8, 245x3

Incline bench:
155x12, 175x10

10, 10, 8

Box jumps:
2 sets of 4

Added some core work and tri work as well.

Good first session back, need to get more protein though, only had 127g yesterday. Diet is clean as usual,  lots of water, fruits/veggies, no sweets/junk.

Sup all! Been lurking for awhile, figured I'd introduce myself and make it official. 

Current numbers/stats (10/22/12):

Age: 25
Height: 5'10.5" barefoot
Weight: 185lbs dry/morning
BF%: ~13% (average of a few online calculators)
Reach: 7'6"
Current SVJ: 32"
Current RDLVJ: 41"
Current RSLVJ: 37"
Current squat: 360lbs x 3
Diet: pretty clean/balanced. Very few sweets, no sodas, lots of water.
A little is Chris and basketball is my main sport, played in HS and walked on in college before dropping out due to a car wreck a few weeks into my freshman year. Used to be a 1 foot jumper until my junior year of HS when I messed up my left MCL and tore some cartilage. Spent a few months on crutches and when I came back my knee wasn't very stable so I became a 2 foot jumper lol! I started lifting/training this year in April as a late New Years resolution and Im hooked. Vert was 27" SVJ/36" RVJ when I started lifting so Ive made some progress. Wasn't following a program just doing my own thing until I
pulled my groin last week so when I come back I'm going to try Project Vertical from Tyler Ray. We'll see what happens.  End goal is a 45" RVJ. So thats me.
