Vertical jump testing:
Bodyweight at session : 195lbs

Dynamic warmup 5'
2x5 SVJ : average ~26'', best was ~26,5'' ( 1'' bellow PR )
2x5 RVJ : average ~31'', best was ~31,5'' ( 0,5'' below PR )
~20 dunk attempts at 9'10'' : couldnt palm the ball, probably due to cold. Got a few soft 2-handers.

Whole session went great , i expected a lot worse as my glutes were still very sore from BSS and it was very cold too.

5' Dynamic warmup.
1x6 18'' depth jumps.
5x5 max effort RVJs.

I have good and bad news.
I remeasured the rim that i have recorded all my jumps and dunks and its not 9'11,5'' but 9'10''.

BAD NEWS 1 : That cancels my 33,5'' RVJ PR recorded in June, it was ~32''.
BAD NEWS 2 : That cancels my "10' dunker" title.  :(  :'(  :(  :'(  :(  :'(

GOOD NEWS : Again today i had many 32'' RVJs both on that 9'10'' and on a legit 10' rim.
So on all last sessions im steady at my PR levels being 195+lbs.

Thats all...  :-\

Thanks. I'll be happy when that number is high enough for me to throw down. Forgot to mention the other day, when I was shooting around before getting into my warm up, I got a full knuckle on the rim for the first time. Kind of surprised myself, in a good way. I've been able to touch 120 before, but I mean barely, so I'd guess I hit around 121, which would mean a 31-32" running vert without really thinking about the jump. Seven more inches to go.

ya thats worth mentioning.. congrats on that too..

the "not thinking about it" aspect is interesting.. when I was jumping my highest, the last 3-4 months or so, I would wreck my running jumps if I wasn't going for a dunk.. they just didn't feel right, and I'd lose 2-3 inches..

then when i'd do the self lobs, wouldn't think about anything, just go up and get the ball and slam it.. thats why most of my best jumps came off self lobs where the ball bounced a bit too high.. its interesting that your body can give you more..

peace

I agree 100%.
Watching my dunk sessions videos i noticed that when trying to catch the ball in the air i jumped 2-3'' higher than my best rim jump, especially when the ball was a little higher than it should be, best recorded jumps are all missed dunks! :D
Personaly i have never achieved a lob dunk , i am talking about off the backboard dunks , more or less the same.
