2 questions:

1.Doesn't making most exercises unilateral go against the general vs. specific idea?
2.Do you think that a max strength phase has any benefits for an intermediate or advanced athlete or is it completely unecesary?

so instead of 37 total sets including the psrints, lifting, and core, did 27 total sets

took off about a set from each exercise

think i'll d something like that for each workout

If its mainly your CNS that's overtrained then you probably should cut volume from the most high intensity parts of your workout.  Low intensity stuff like core work (sit-ups, planks, etc.) shouldn't really be much of a CNS drain so you shouldn't worry about cutting it unless it's some type of heavy weighted or explosive core work.

This was a nice game by him.  Don't know if some people find the music annoying but you could just mute it.

Gerald Wilkins, Dominique's brother, was pretty athletic and known for being a pretty good defender but in this game Jordan was way too quick for him in the half-court.  Rick Pitino was coaching the knicks at that time and he had that full court press he liked to use.  The press gave MJ a few open jumpers also resulted in him dunking the ball and hitting Patrick Ewing in the face.

so you're in india now? how is it?

I've been here for a few weeks now.  Comfort wise the only really annoying thing is the heat and the mosquitos that are out in the morning and evening.  I did get one bite that became swollen for a day but it left so it's fine.  In terms of my sprint training, I am a bit bummed about the lack of weights and protein powder.

The hospital here is a privately owned hospital so unlike in the public hospitals, the patients are usually fairly wealthy and everything is pretty modern and well run.  Also since it's a private hospital, the CEO gave permission for some students like me to be able to see patients' private files and learn about the medical procedures in the cardiology intensive care unit, operating room, and some other places.  Most hospitals, especially those in America, wouldn't let a 20 year-old Bio major see that much of the hospital because of liabilites and the dangers of being sued.  I've learned a lot so far so it's nice.

I haven't been running every other day like I normally do because I've been at the hospital so I'm going to be doing just one or two really intense sessions every week.

Today: 6*flying 50m with 30m run up

I stopped running when I could no longer run with proper form.  I wanted to do plyos later but I don't know if I'll be able to do them.  Maybe I'll do some more core.  It was the first time in a while that I did any run more than 30m.  Walking is kind of taxing, but luckily when I go back to the hospital tonight I will be mainly sitting...

Maybe if you're overtrained now, after you finish vertfreak and go light for a week or two so you can recover, you'll start seeing some gains?

Are you going to go with 97.5 for the next one or are you going to do 102.5 and keep raising everything by 5kg?

ankle depth jumps 2*10 ~12"
CM jump forward into tuck jump 2*7
broad jumps 2*6
scissor jumps 2*10
stiff-legged jumps 2*10
medball chest passes 2*10
medball overhead passes 2*10
medball rotating side passes 2*5 per side

at least 2 min between each set; medball was 6 pounds

Today I'm not doing anything, but I will be sprinting tomorrow.

My vertical jump was 21" and my broad jump was 83".  I looked those up and they both sucked, especially the broad jump.  The broad jump was really terrible, but it was the first time I had ever measured it and it felt kind of akward so I'll take solace in the hope that I might not have done it right.

I measured my broad jump again and I got 89-90 inches.  I tried jumping without bending my knees and did it kind of like an rdl, which loaded my hamstrings a lot better.  I don't know if this means that much because while I do think I've gotten stronger since then, that was the first time I'd ever done it and measured it so my technique probably wasn't too good the first time.

My hamstrings feel pretty much normal now, so I will be able to run whenever I have the time in the next few days.  I guess I'll also be doing some isos and an increased number of calisthenics as well as plyos since I've got no gym equipment.

Yeah I'm pretty sure the person who wrote this was actually a paedophile or something like that from what I remember when we did this poem in school.

My hamstrings are a little sore so I didn't sprint today, I just did plyos.

ankle depth jumps 2*10 ~12"
CM jumps 1*10
broad jumps 2*7 (these felt a little risky)
scissor jumps 2*10
stiff-legged jumps 2*10

at least 2 min between each set

After I was done with the workout my hamstrings were a little tingly and had a bit of a dull ache, so I'm probably going to go easy for a few more days.

Apparently in India weightlifting is starting to become really popular or something so they said that I couldn't get a membership for just the one month I'm going to be here because I'll be taking up equipment in the gym which could be used by someone willing to pay for a year.  The year membership is too expensive so I'm not really sure what to do.  Would it be possible for me to do isos or something without equipment to help me maintain my strength until I get back home?  I was about to get a pr in both the bench and the rdl...

1/4th mile sprints felt damn good.. i have to work on full out sprinting the first 200 or so meters soon, then just going as fast as possible until finish.. i think that would help alot.. i thought my first sprint was going to be below 60s it felt so damn good, then i saw 1:05 and got depressed haha... my sprinting form is falling into place though, tonight's sprints felt real nice.

Does this mean you'll be running on your toes for the first 200, then running heel-toe for the second 200?  If you sprint near max and make first contact with your heel then I would have to think that would kill your shins after a while.

never knew he ran a 4.3 40..

his competitiveness and fierceness impressed me so much.. when he was zoned in, no one could do anything.. it was just impossible to stop him.

Yeah, he ran a 4.3 in college after his huge growth spurt where he shot up by 4 inches or something.  He had the small joints and reactivity to be really fast without having that much muscle.  I think he was only 180-190 pounds when he started playing.  He lifted more so that teams like the knicks and pistons couldn't try to stop him by being super physical with him.  He definitely got stronger and bigger, but I think he lost some of his athleticism.  Didn't matter too much though because he shot the ball a lot better as he kept playing.

When people see Kobe get mad at teammates or asked to be traded or something, they really are seeing the same desire to win that MJ had.  MJ was really hard on his teammates whenever they made mistakes and was also critical of management when they made moves he didn't like, like when the they traded for Bill Cartwright.  They both wanted to win so badly that they couldn't tolerate anyone else messing up.
