As long as you're balling somewhat regularly, the most important thing for you is to get bigger (put on weight) and to increase your squat numbers. Get big, get strong, jump high.

Love that site you put up to log your training!  :highfive:
You could make a "light" page that is auto-fed with every training day in a blog format , or any other format, the main idea is that besides the main page there would be a distinct address for each training day, and you could just post the link in here. You could keep the site offline or private and just let the "lifting numbers blog" online.
Or you could just keep it up like now and update us with milestones.
Good work, keep it up.

Thanks, it takes sometimes 30 minutes to update it as it is (it's all hard coded so I have to edit documents) so I'd rather not put it online. I will just update everyone every now and again. :)

What's your running vert?

I used to play INTENSE bball for 2-3 hrs without any kind of carbs or protein.  I did have a large reserve of glycogen and fat.  Was that still very bad and did that cause me to burn lots of muscle?

Quite possibly. I feel the most important times to be eating a fuckload of food is before and directly after ANY training session. Regardless of length. While some would argue that 2-3 hours is fine, I would look to eat (praps a protein shake) half way through that session.

Can I ask why you're doing high rep squats?

What's your 1RM squat now?

What the others said. If you want to see how high you can be jumping right now, stop lifting weights.

The next 2 weeks should consist of jumping every day (doesn't have to be heaps, just high intensity) for the first week. Then on the second week, jump every other day. Then rest for 2 days. THEN test your vertical.

Hey man. I'm logging everything on an offline website. Here's what it looks like.

Training's going great lately because I've just made a huge RVJ PR, which, at the end of the day, is my goal. My RVJ is at 35" and I need that up to around 37-38 by the end of the year. I'm now heavier than ever at around 81kg. Perhaps I've grown taller, not sure.

Squat-wise, wouldn't be too impressive. As an 'elite' volleyballer, I'm constantly travelling for tournaments and whatnot so it's hard for me to sustain a long period of lifting. I seem to be making some strength gains, then going on tour for 2 weeks, coming back and trying to get that strength back. So, I don't think my numbers would have improved a whole lot. Last I remember, I did 110kg 2x3. I really want to get that up to 115-120x5 in the next couple of months.

So yes, training's going excellent. Thanks for asking.

Less power but a more effective utilisation of the power they do produce. And you can't really say it's less power because it's still a high amount of power, the only difference being that it's related to their height/weight.

Thanks mate. =]

Try to keep your lifting sessions under an hour. If you're going to lift directly after playing ball, make sure you've got plenty of food and protein. You go catabolic during that session, you die. :)

How tall are you and what's your PR vert at the moment?

I posted a thread on this recently and got hated on. lol. You probably won't though.

I forgot to mention, in addition to my previous PR, my block jump or SVJ went up 1cm also. So,  :personal-record: on that. That's at 321cm now. I need to figure out my reach, I don't know if it's 255cm or 251cm. I also got an RDL record a while back, although it was supposed to be 3 reps. :/ Romanian Deadlift 125kg 2x2 PR - Set Thursday, 28/06/12

So my spike reach went from 336cm to 344cm. First actual PR in 8 months. 8cm straight up. I now have an 89cm RVJ (35") and much work ahead. Next goal is 350cm spike reach or 37-38" RVJ.

Point of thread: Having not PR'd in 8 months is tough but if you keep at it, it will happen.
