2019 Vert Comp
« on: January 09, 2019, 10:34:20 pm »

So I'm a competitive bastard. Even seeing other people at the gym makes me competitive and I think I do my best when I've got something to go up against. Is anyone up for a vert comp? I'm thinking test verts - train - test verts again - profit!

Thoughts?

I've titled it 2019 but I'm thinking more a 12 or 16 week thing.

Nice. I haven't tested in ages. Will get my baseline next week.

Yes definitely go with a hashtag. #2019vertcomp does seem to fit nicely. Any other suggestions?

tbh, i bet it would. that's what's crazy. all of this running has me feeling so springy/powerful. sometimes i jump up onto the curb and such, or over a small railing, or over that snake several months ago (lol), and i feel so good, almost dunk level. obviously don't have that peak power anymore, but running has definitely kept that spring going. getting some of that jump specific power back would just require actual jump sessions. would be cool to do long light runs with "strides" but instead, jumps. imagine slow quarter mile recovery laps with a L-SLRVJ every lap, going at a vertec (that sounds pretty fun lmao). all of this sounds kind of "steepler" ish.

for a while now, i've been interested in potentially jumping on grass.. :ninja: i wouldn't jump on hard courts anymore, or even indoor gyms. but i really do love springy grass. would be cool to buy a vertec and get some jumps in eventually. dragging it out there would suck tho. hah.

for now, i'll just spectate. 8)

:D :ibjumping:

Just out of interests sake maybe do a few tests. Once a month or something. Just to see where you are?

ya i'd need to figure out a way to measure it properly, on grass (ie a real or turf football field, touches on the goal post etc).

need to think about it.

i'm also tempted, whenever i leave this country and am back in a place with basketball courts. wonder how much i've lost. presumably a lot.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

I guess I will join. My hat off to acole14 for wasting me in our vertical gain competition..... I went negative 1 in while he at least maintained and gained.....

I am at 220 lb and sub 400 full paused squat, my prime was either many eyars ago at 178 lb and 315 or 215 and 405lb squat, not sure which one was better.....
33yrs | 24in SVJ | >45% BF | 227LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 400lb max squat paused | 5'8 wingspan | 26in RVJ

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB
