bar is nice.

man u r looking alot lighter.

good stuff !

thanks, was looking lighter, but I've been pigging it out the last 3 weeks and back over 80kg now :/

I've been forcing the food down as well, not like I've been hungry at all... at least I know my hormones are back to about normal now, as my body has seriously dialed back any hunger signals!

Lower body still pretty sore. Right groin area has a slight strain

Soft tissue work for whole body, less for lower body - just quick session today

bodyweight at home without shoes = 81+kg

BBall practice session at WLC outdoor courts -  75 mins

10 mins dribble drills, 10 mins shooting drills
then high intensity moves, shooting and layups
from 45 mins on - jumps, and trick dunks on 8 feet netball rims

No hops today, down 2-3 inches compared to last time.
2 days after heavy squats, that is to be expected.

Ehh making nice progress on inbetween the legs layup, off the dribble or a small lob, but still can't do a dunk like that on 8 feet :/
Lose control of the ball if I jump hard.


stretched lower body

-----

Resistance at the outdoor courts

3 level ext rotated band pull apart - to forehead, shoulder, sternum - light rogue band  - dual strands x 10 each

Dip shrugs - on corner of fence - BW x16 @RPE 6
inverted rows - undergrip - explosive - BW+5kg 3x6 @RPE 7

"+" = 15-20 secs rest
Pushups on low bar 1.5 feet - closegrip - explosive - BW+15kg x25 +3+3+3 @RPE 9

Might drop the straight bar dips as it does impinge my shoulders if i go down too deep....

Sunday 29th March 2020

Week 32
Height - 5'8.5"
weighed - 81.5kg(+0.5) 179.7lbs

waist - 32.25 inches (+0.25)
hip = 39 (+0.5)
upper thigh = 24 7/8 (+3/8)
Right calf = 15.25
Neck = 15.25 (+1/8)
Wrist = 6.5

Tanita scale bodyfat% = 19.6 (+2.1)

Total loss so far - weight  22.6kg 50lbs  Waist 10.25 inches  BF% Tanita 11.7%

Interesting - all my measurements went up by exactly the same amount as last week.
Anyway 3 weeks of pigging out, time to get back to leaning down again

Shouldn't be too hard as eating 2k calories makes me full, but I've force feeding myself above this late into the night.
Earlier to bed will fix this...
I'll probably dump a lot of water and food weight and be under 80kg

My TDEE spread sheet has me at a 2725 average calorie burn for the last 4 weeks.
Phone app TDEE is at 2446, but not enough weeks to average things out yet
Fitbit Charge 3, 28 day average is 3000 with heart rate monitor turned off (except when I'm doing soft tissue work), so about 11% inflated
Garmin Vivo fit 3, 3 week average at 2500, 8% under

So about 2200-2300 on rest days and 3000-3100 or so on training days

Plan to eat 1800 on rest days and 2300 on training days.
Eating a straight 2000 everyday could work as well, but less refueling on training days.

Tuesday 31st March 2020

Lower body finally starting to feel ache free, but still a little bit, maybe another day of rest might do it...

Soft tissue work for lower body, and some upper

bodyweight at home without shoes = 81.3kg

BBall practice session at WLC outdoor courts - 60 mins

10 mins dribble drills, 10 mins shooting drills
then high intensity moves, shooting and layups
A few jumps, and dunks on 8 feet netball rims
A few reps of left-right and right-left jump drills.

Didn't feel that great despite the 2 days off.... actually did not feel like jumping much.
But I was getting off the ground easy enough, and got 2 decent jumps off, about the same as my current bests, but weighing a bit more.
Easy head touch on the Blacknet, been a while since I have done so, and it felt higher than before, 3 inches or so - I recall I measured it at around 8'2"


Back at home - Lower body - LIGHT session

facing down slope of garage

peterson setups BW x12
supported ATG split squat BW x10
Goblet squat 12kg x 10

Safety Squat Bar (Verve SSB) squat - (28kg bar+2kg) x 10, 50kg x8, 70kg x5, 85kg, 2x2, 95kg x2, 105kg x1

Sub-maximal explosive squats - stopping each set when bar speed slowed, and first hint of straining - circa 50% of rep max
4+ mins rest
80kg x8 - too light
85kg x7, 85kg x6

Aiming for around 7 reps on first set, and got 8, so 80kg was too light.
Hmm so I have gotten stronger, although the warmups did not inspire much confidence.
Getting used to this new SSB now, form was good today.

I'm guessing my high catch power clean is about the same as the loads I use here.
So need to get this to 105kg, while weighing 70kg.

This group in Oly shoes - alternating sets 2 mins rest
RDL - to mid shin - hook gripped 60kg x3, 85kg explosive 2x8 @ RPE 7
Wall tib raise - body at 40 degree angle - in oly shoes BWx2, 2x6 @RPE 9
SSB single leg calf raise - arm supported - both sides back to back - on 1.5 inch elevation - controlled eccentric, 70kg x3, 80kg x8, x9 @RPE8

RDL will use the same loads as SSB, and it felt about right, a bit more strain/slower bar speed around the 8th rep.
Body lower angle on Tib raise, so harder now.
SSB calf raise, on slightly higher elevation, so greater ROM.


facing down slope of garage - shoes
SSB split squat - front foot elevated 1.5 inches - same side hand on rack oly shoes, 1min rest brtween each side - 30kg x5, 40kg x10
AB wheel rollouts - knees bent BW 2x9 @RPE 7

SSB split squat was quite easy, didn't even need support arm on right leg. Will go up to 45kg next session.

Wednesday 1st April 2020

Feeling drained, and whole body is sore - calves, vmo, hamstrings and abs the most.
Damn calves/hamstrings/adductors felt shredded last night, but much better today

Felt much better after the walk.
Despite eating a lot yesterday, I weigh less and under 80kg before dinner.

Thursday 2nd April 2020

Still moderately sore all over


Soft tissue work for whole body, less for lower body - just quick session today

bodyweight at home without shoes = 81+kg

BBall practice session at WLC outdoor courts -  71 mins

10 mins dribble drills, 10 mins shooting drills
then high intensity moves, shooting and layups
Lots of inbetween the leg layups off the dribble and small lob practise at the end

stretch

Sore and lack of energy today relatively speaking, tried a few jumps, but didn't have any spark to do them with intensity
Shoulders were achey as well

---

Warmed up my upper body stuff, but felt weak, achey and unstable, so called it off.....

Friday 3rd April 2020

Still sore all over, but starting to get that strong and snappy feeling in my legs

Did some sissy squats down to 90 degree knee angle, with hips fully punched forward, while warming up for my walk, and damn,  my knees felt pain free!
And felt very easy for my quads
This backwards walking thing, up a slope, is working miracles!

Saturday 4th April 2020

Feeling decent, but still a little achey, so maybe another days rest would be optimal.
Legs and hips felt good when I was doing my morning warmups/mobility stuff in the bathroom after getting up.
So I had a feeling I would jump and squat well today.

Soft tissue work for lower body

bodyweight at home without shoes = 81.9kg

BBall practice session at WLC INDOOR courts -  60 mins

10 mins dribble drills, 10 mins shooting drills
then high intensity moves, shooting and layups
Lots of jumps after 40 mins, then some trick dunks on 8 feet netball rim.

Felt explosive today, jumped well.
Vertical - got my wrist 2 inches above 9 feet - highest so far, and weighing over 81kg as well. 9'9"-9'10" touch? So about 29 inch vertical
Paused vertical, wrist to 9 feet or so.
Didn't get any good running jumps in, but both wrists almost to 9 feet on 2 handed jump - highest so far as well.

Finally touched the ball on the 8 feet netball rim doing a inbetween legs dunk off a few steps  - finally some progress :)
I can jump high enough to do it, but timing is tough....


Back at home - Lower body - HEAVY session

peterson setups BW x12
supported ATG split squat BW x10
Goblet squat 12kg x 10

Safety Squat Bar (Verve SSB) squat - (28kg bar+2kg) x 10, 50kg x8, 70kg x5, 85kg, x2, 95kg 2x1, 105kg x1

115kg x1 @RPE 7.5

Sub-maximal explosive squats - stopping each set when bar speed slowed, and first hint of straining - circa 50% of rep max
4+ mins rest
105kg x5, 100kg x4, 95kg x5

115kg single felt easier than last time. Felt like I could probably triple it at least. If it feels just as easy or easier next time, I will go up to 120kg for my top single.
Warmups felt easier than last time as well. Surprising considering how much jumping I did today
So my recovery with the current setup seems to be OK now, frequency/volume wise.

Should have stopped at 4 reps on the 105kg work set, a bit more strain and upper back rounding on this rep.


This group in Oly shoes - alternating sets 2 mins rest
Single leg SSB Good Morning - arms supported 30kg x5, 35kg x10 each side (1 min rest inbetween)
Wall tib raise - body at 40 degree angle - in oly shoes BWx2, 2x7 @RPE 9.5
SSB single leg calf raise - arm supported - both sides back to back - on 1 inch elevation - controlled eccentric, 70kg x3, 80kg 2x10 @RPE 9
Split leg RDL - rear leg out to side - explosive, touching plates on floor - stopping each set when bar speed slowed, and first hint of straining - circa 50% of rep max
20kg x5, 40kg x 8 each side (1 min rest inbetween)

"+" = 15 secs rest
On back, leg lowering ab move - lower back pressed against hands controlled eccentric -  BW x12 +5+5 @ RPE 8

Feeling mildly drained.
Moderately sore, but thankfully way less than last week, especially my calves.
Mostly in calves, abs lower quads, hammies and glutes.

68 min walk/hike
middle of the walk - backward walking up a 20-30 degree sloped path x 2.5+ mins

Still got that powerful feeling while walking, even after all the training yesterday, so that's a welcome change from previous weeks.

Lower body still sore,e specially my hamstrings

Soft tissue work for whole body

bodyweight at home without shoes = 81kg

BBall practice session at WLC outdoor courts -  66 mins

10 mins dribble drills, 10 mins shooting drills
then high intensity moves, shooting and layups
from 45 mins on - jumps, and trick dunks on 8 feet netball rims

Hops similar to my current best, but in a sore and fatigued state, so might jump even higher in 2 days time.
Also the backboard I was jumping against last time was a lot lower than 9 feet, so my vertical is not 29-30 inches like I thought :)
Probbaly more like 27-28 inches based on how I was jumping against it today, an inch lower.
9'7" touch on the 9 feet backboard I regularly jump against today, so probbaly touched 9'8" 2 days ago.
