If you're white, you'd be better off ignoring your upper body...

You were doing better for a while, training, and actually making decent posts.  why are you acting like an idiot fuck again harvey?

I'm trying to make a point. If you want to make it somewhere as a basketballer, your priority should be jumping above anything else physically.

So that when you start playing some high-level ball, you can jump for joy over 50 times without losing height because somebody who put in the work in the weightroom is boxing you out and bullying you in the low post? Lol.

You don't even play basketball, bro, you play volleyball, so let me tell you that basketball is a physical sport, man, your body and how compact and leanly muscled it is incredibly important. Not just jumping.

These dudes look tiny on TV, but if you go up to them in real life they're completely packed with muscle. Even someone like Stephen Curry is more muscled than you think he'd be.

As for OP, I'd say the routine is fine, just keep adding weight.

I have played basketball. At the national level too, might I add. The point I'm making is that the priority shouldn't be upper body. As important as it is.

Plyometrics and squats two times a week. Most of the the time I read that plyometrics should be done before strenght. What are the benefits from doing them before strenght?

You'll jump higher. While that's a good thing, the potentiation effect on your CNS doing them after strength is probably more valuable.

Just a tip, usually better to do squats/explosive strength work (paused rep squats/etc) BEFORE plyometrics. Helps potentiate jumping results. How many times are you squatting a week vs how many plyometrics sessions?

aw, vag, i was trying to be gentle. anyway, yes. either the director of australian volleyball is deluded or harvey misheard. the bald guy is one of the best beach volleyball players ever, fwiw. he and his partner are defending olympic champs. watched them whup a japanese team yesterday despite playing badly.

Come on , you know i love exaggerating to a graphic point.  :P
I searched the guy before i posted the previous post, i know who he is and i highly respect ANY olympic athlete , even more the top ones like himself.
I am also sure the director knew what he was talking about, it just wasn't what harvey posted. Maybe it was local numbers in Australia , maybe it was the most watched event the day that it happened etc.
The thread topic remains hilarious!  :wowthatwasnutswtf:


I think he said specifically at the past two Olympics or something along those lines. Regardless of Olympic viewership, volleyball is the 2nd most 'popular' sport in the world and the largest in terms of people playing with over 50 million playing volleyball every week.

is that true or did you make it up? my extremely brief google search showed that, based on the number of articles published about each type of event, the most "popular" summer olympics sport was athletics by a long way; volleyball was 16th. http://www.topendsports.com/world/lists/popular-sport/olympics.htm.

not hating, i like watching volleyball a lot. have you seen viewership data? can you send it? i'm genuinely curious.

The combination of the two disciplines, indoor and beach combine to be the most viewed overall sport, I believe. At least, that's what I was told by the director of Volleyball Australia.

Beach and indoor are, by far, the most watched Olympic sports. More people watch these sports than the athletics or the swimming or the basketball. For those of you who want to see some ridiculous jumping, I'd encourage you to take a look at the USA beach team, in particular Phil Dalhausser. One of the best athletes in the world, IMO.





Can't wait to see world ranked 22 Australia cause some upsets in the indoor discipline. Who's keen for the volleyball? :p

A long time if you're squatting twice a week only. Even longer to get to 35".

it's not that good. probably 255.

Yesterday
mental state: calm from 5 hrs sleep
physical: feel very recovered. in the morning I felt extremely aggressive and wanted to do my squats then but had work to do

squats 245lbs:

it's amazing how much easier it is to lift fast rather than slow..
3x2

last rep of last set was very tough. Felt easy though to the cardiovascular system, mentally also didn't feel tough. KNees feel great after foam rolling.

This isn't a PR for me unfortunately. Just gotta keep at it.

BW: 154lbs

2. 95lbs bent over rows
a few sets, 4-5 reps at a time, slower for posture


later

some starts, 10-20m starts just a few. ddn't have energy for anything else. sucks because I could have been rady for a good workout but didn't sleep on time due to noise and such. will be moving into a mch quieter area very soon.

Lbs? Why's that? Were you injured or something?
