Anyone ever had any issues with this.?  Summed up in bb post below. Sucks. Going to try doing higher squats and BSS along with mobility work...

Old Journals / DBT (Dunk Before Thirty)
« on: November 03, 2015, 04:09:01 pm »
whats going on.  3rd reboot of this journal but im getting after it.  Will no long be on a ship by the end of a year and will have much more consistency in my routine.  Also, I turn 30 in 2019 so it seems like a good goal to focus on.
I have been a poster off and on for a long time (2010 or before) and a inconsistent progress logger.  I NEED to get back to and defeat all my previous PRS and reach a physical fitness level and athleticism level i have never reached.   I am 28 but when i started vert training (18 or even earlier on the old forums terminal vertical i think or even other ones plus db hammer) i was 175 pounds or so and reached some decent numbers for being 5 10 and a half about 7 6 reach (or maybe 7 7)

Former PRS I wish to beat in the next year
-Weight (which will aid almost every other goal) 175! Prob my biggest struggle. Goal is 2 pounds a week slow and keep most of muscle mass
-Running Vert 34.5  (10 4.5 touch) "weak dunks"
Standing 30 inch
Squat at parallel 345 x 4
BSS 100s for 6-8 reps
Bench Press 315 for 6 reps
Pullups deadhang 18
1.5 mile time 9:24

Former VIDS

Former logs

Thats all history im now 28 and weigh about 208.  I have been working out but pretty much only upper body and started to throw in a little BSS and low volume plyos.  Id say im severly undertrained vertical jump wise.  The best way i believe to move forward is to evaluate where i faltered before and after reflection and reading old logs this is what i come up with:
- consistency- this is number 1 for sure, i worked soemtimes for months sometimes for years somedays for days (ouch ) but never pto ut it all together and stayed true to the game plan. This has to change.
 -Body fat-  I was somewhat lean when i started but never where i needed to be to achieve a great vertical jump.  waist is way too big right now.
- Strength ratio-  I had somewhat strong legs but was not developed to where i needed to be repping big weight kingfish style.  Somewhat tangent to body fat.  when i can rep 405 and BSS with 100s for reps then i can reevaluate..
- Jumping-  I am a slow strong two foot approach jumper.  Its not pretty or refined.  Losing weight will help.  Coming from an untrained state lots of low level jumps and then actual verticals will help
Recovery plus sleep consistency
Pushing the limits-  overtraining is bad.  Not going hard in the paint is unexcusable. 

- Mobility (YOGA), flexiblity, focus too much on upper body mass, overthinking

Current Stats
Bench 275 X   , 225 X
Pullups dead hang-
Squat 275 X xx
Waist 34.5 inches
Weight 208

Going to rate it 1-5
Lots and lots of veggies and lean meats.  Feel good abou what i eat compared to the junk ive had to eat lately. 


Old Journals / 28 weeks later
« on: November 18, 2013, 11:58:46 pm »

Ok so I haven't been here for years. I suck. Haven't worked out much. Very detrained. 204 pounds. Not jumping my highest. Or squatting my most. Or looking the most muscular. Or in the best shape....the next 28 weeks I will change that and become a new better mam than ever before
Why 28 weeks? Because it's a cool movie. It's a tangible goal with a time frame. And. Zombies.

This is going to be pretty regimented to start. I work better that way. Especially now being full time military done with school.
First four weeks- diet like hell. fIF basic workouts. Upper high rep. Ball for cardio with some treadmill a few times a week. Mobility, stretching, and solid warm ups all big for recovery. Building the bases now. Have a new pair of squat shoes coming so excited about that. Help with my shitty squat. Be more king fish like. Anyways. Today

Week 1 - day 1

Played about an hour of ball   Getting it back a little.

Pogo jumps 2x20
Glute bridge 2x15 no weight 3 sec pause at top
Squat 3x5 185lbs. Rough but I'll get it back
BSS ISO hold x 1 minute a leg
Adv glute bridge 1 minute hold
Calf raises 2x20 per leg no weight

Great diet today. Chipotle bowl. Muscle milk+creatine. Grilled chicken and spinach salad with balsamic and olive oil.
Post workout hit 199 pounds first time in awhile

Let's get it. BIY

Posts will be short. And to the point.  No BSing around. Gonna stick to it. Not worry or overthink just be motivated.

Hope all is well

Politics, News, & SHeeT! / Fair Tax act
« on: May 08, 2011, 08:47:07 am »
Any one know anything about the FairTax act?

basically income tax becomes no more and instead everything is charged a higher consumption tax.  No more IRS BS, and those that spend outside their means get taxed for it, while those that are just trying to make it by get charged less. Plus it would make more money off tourists and those who don't pay income tax(illegals or whatever). Also maybe find a way to tax higher income consumption goods even more, although the rich most likely would pay a lot more since they spend and buy a lot more

Don't know if it will ever happen, but I do think i like the concept. Those that spend more and do more get taxed more, those that save and dont have the means to spend a lot get taxed less. I mean 40,000 income or whatever is not the same everywhere. Like person A can live comfortable with 40,000, while person B is struggling to make it as a single parent with a couple kid or something, why should the government tax them the same??

any thoughts?

The other day used my brother Ithlete app. Pretty cool. Basically a cheap man's OMEGAWAVE substitute. What it does is gives u a reading of" readiness" by giving resting heart rate and most importantly Heart Rate Variability(HRV)

pretty cool, as i mentioned above, one of the main functions of an OMEGAWAVE is measuring HRV.(think mine was 72 that day, below 50 is an indicator recovery is needed)

obviously this isnt something that is a MUST in training, but IMO definitely a valuable asset
as my brother phrased it "it tells me whether i feel sluggish and not like working out because I am worn out and not fit to train, or simply because I am being lazy"

I think totally cost is 60 dollars or so (not including heart rate monitor) 50 for equipment for iphone/ipad +10 for actual APP

more cool APPS out there everyday

heres the info about it

Funny dude

First watch how absurd this video is

then watch Dom's

also has some other funny ones

Obviously, the dunking world is full of genetic freaks who can dunk without touching a squat rack in their lives.  Who are some of the best examples of the opposite- guys who have become extremely strong, and as a result, or at the same time, developed great VJ or RVJ?  Talking about the guys that you can definitely say "they are damn strong" and they can jump freaking high(and there is a strong correlation).

My few:

KINGFISH : Dude can fly and squats a ton

the short guy can also fly and squats a lot

Not trying to start a pro squat only freaking CoolCol J thread, but for the average "white boy" developing a big time squat can be essential to developing some serious ups, not to mention it really is the most trainable essential part of Vertical jumps.

Soo my buddy was asking me why squats/lower body should be done if your main goal is upper body (bench pullups whatever), and I had a hard time articulating the benefits, any thoughts?

I mean I am all about college athletes (who are receiving free education at the taxpayers expense) having accountability, being drug tested, have discipline etc etc, but this is just a whole different level
