Progress Journals & Experimental Routines / Get fit again
« on: November 17, 2020, 10:42:00 am »
Consistency and results in the year of the COVID

Starting off with body weights stuff including the old Air Alert. Don’t hate, I have done blocks of it (4 weeks) in the past and like the general fitness.

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...

Progress Journals & Experimental Routines / Dunk before 3-4
« 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. 
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. 


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

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

Just curious if everyone could post

A) low bar or high bar squat and how strict of a technique

B) Squat before and VJ(OR RVJ) before  IE  8 months ago squatted 315lbs while jumped 28 inches

C) Squat after and VJ(OR RVJ) after   IE currently squat 375lbs and jumps 34 inches

D) Why you choose to do low bar or high bar(or dont do either)

Basketball / NBA banned vertical jump increasing shoes

Im sure people have heard about these, but they just were NBA outlawed

I mean if the NBA banned them, maybe there is something great to them..or maybe not :P

Confused on what role hip flexor strength play in sprints and jumps should they be trained per say?
