After a month of no squatting or deadlifting....my knee feels AMAZING. I was debating adding a single squat/dead low volume day to workouts but then I jumped 44" RVJ in warmups last night on a sub par runup. That's without any strenuous/dedicated explosive work. I was shocked. BW was at 190.2lbs without shoes as well. So now... IDK what to do lol

no idea either, but that's absolutely awesome. lol.

as for squatting/deadlifting etc, if it ends up exacerbating knee tweaks, stay away from it as much as possible, or go alot lighter (higher rep) & see if that helps.

Still here. Still lifting. The last two weeks I've cut back on volume for upper lifts and switched to a routine of one heavier leg day (still working my way up slowly) and one explosive more volume oriented day for legs. Doing the second for upper body in an attempt to keep the body "shocked".

So, say Thursday I'll lift "heavy" legs. Tonight it's deadlifts, then accessories. So Sunday I'll hit some explosive stuff and add volume on lunges/etc. Next Thursday I'll squat. So far I feel very refreshed. Curious to see where the "gains" (re-gains? Lol) will stagnate. BW seems to be around 188 consistently. I've started adding some cardio work on upper body days and that's showing some body composition "fixes" where I havent ate clean as I should be lately.

Overall I feel pretty good. I'm in the gym only 4 days a week so more hoops. Timing is off on dunks but the spring is slowly returning. Last night I was easily able to hit one handers and light two handers in layup lines with my shoes untied! I was quite pleased.

Oh and I've added a more strenuous/challenging box and depth jump regimen to warmups, so thatay account for something as well since pushing myself again on them.

Oh and lost in the 5v5 tournament last night. Sucks. But that team has won the last 4 years so... Meh.

Got picked up for a 3v3 league that started Tuesday (I got the call last night). Showed up today post work with half the first half gone (got off late) no warmups, no stretch, eek. Went OFF. 27 in the remaining 10:03 of the half. 40 in the second. Fuck me I played like old me. Actually had a jumper going. Badass. No to go deadlift ...

A few box/depth jumps from warmups last week (few separate days).


Played at UT last night. Shins we're sore from playing Wed, Thurs, then lifting Thurs night but I played well. Had a handful of decent in game jumps including one where I went after a missed 3 (I back ironed it) and was looking at the rim. I landed quite in shock as was most everyone else there lol! Even the two guys I play with regularly said I was up there. Definitely my highest jump in a while.

Was supposed to lift shoulders/core this AM but woke up with sore hams/lower back/shins. Decided extra rest was necessary and slept another 3 hours before work. I feel much better now. Will hit shoulders tonight after work.

Last night, leg day, BW at 191. Shit.

Made it through warmups and my 3x15 lunge/SL RDL stuff then had some stuff come up so no accessory work or core. Probably will help with recovery. Will hammer core and some cardio tonight after back work.

Did snag a vid of some more warmup work. GCT is a little long but getting better.
