Kettbell swing onto toes 24kg x7, x12

I've never heard of this kettle swing. Are you just finishing the rep with your heals off the floor and on your toes?
I just made a home made "kettlebell" using two, one gallon jugs duck taped together.
Thanks

Concentric only is similar to sled dragging

But I think without eccentric training, your muscles are not going get much bigger for strength gains that transfer over to non related tasks
And jumping off a run requires ability to absorb very large eccentric forces on the plant and landing
Hi Cool. Thank you for your comment.

That's a ton of water to lose in just a night. I know I've lost ~8lbs of water weight before, but that's after eating a ton of food and being carbed up + salted up, so I was retaining a lot of water. Special case. I also get up once or twice a night to pee.

That's one reason why I weigh myself when dry fasted. It's a more consistent measurement. My starting weight non dry fasted may have been around 206lbs, but i weighed in at 201.8lbs dry fasted.
Part of overnight water weight loss is due to the moisture lost in your breathing overnight.

Wait why am I annoyed. I lost 12lbs in 4 weeks (both starting and ending weight dry fasted). That's 3 pounds a week and didn't lose any strength!
I drink at least 1.5 gallons of water per day. It is not unusual for me to lose 7 to 10 lbs. of water weight overnight. I have to get up frequently overnight to urinate. I don't sleep well in the first place, so interrupted sleep doesn't seem to bother me.

Duh moment on the leap board. Put some blank, white paper on it, and the mustard will show up better.

Can any of you guy's do this?

lol.

btw the marked cardboard on the wall, smear of mustard on the hand is a genius way to measure vert at home. can't believe i never thought of something like that.
I mixed some mustard with pancake mix to make it a paste and see how that works next time.

Post changed.

I estimate my best running vert was maybe 33" back when I was in my early 20's in the early 1980's. Could dunk on 9' 11" rim, but not 10'.

Also, my squat is about 335lbs max right now. But last week I threw down a two handed dunk off two feet and I play basketball only like once a month now. Weird.








I'm new on this forum. Just wondering how tall you are and your vertical? If you rather not answer, no problem. It's not possible to go through so many pages of journals to see how others are faring. Thanks. Russ

Here's the app I use to count calories and calorie burn. It shows my total so far today. I walked about 80 minutes today with my bike at my side.
