SVJ PR from Thursday!!! BW was 194.7lbs. "Box" is 36" to the top. Given the slight knee bend to land and forward instead of vertical force this should be 35-36"! Super excited for this. Never expected this at this BW and no heavy lifting!

Quick update/recap... Due to some sickness and some ridiculous work BS (I think I clocked 64 hours last week??  :o ) I took a week off the gym. Plan to get back at it tonight or tomorrow depending on work (we're moving the store to a new location). Not sure I needed a rest and reset but hopefully it's beneficial nonetheless. I haven't weighed myself or done anything except some light stretching at night.

Finally weighed in: 196.4 lbs. But, I LOOK leaner? WTF. Anyway, after a week and a half off I hit back the other night and then did a warmup/light cardio session and some jump squat/hang clean super sets. Store is just getting settled back in/down so hopefully my schedule normalizes again soon.

We lost in the semis of a league with a bunch if overseas/former college guys by ONE on a BS call. SMH. Dude doubled on the trap then gets wrapped up (we had a foul to give), takes another dribble then shoots and they give him the shooting foul. He hit both and we back ironed a 40 footer at the buzzer. Crazy part was the ref that overruled the original call of a foul on the floor wasn't the ref in position to make the call.

Guess we wait for the Southeast Classic and the ProAm in June.

After a ton of 50+ hour weeks limiting training and hooping (haven't played in about 3 weeks). I tried to go shoot today. Floor was so dusty it had dust bunnies on it. No amount ofo shoe wiping was helping so I was dejected. Attempted a few one step dunks and surprised myself especially with the LR plant variation but I had no motivation due to the floor and it showed in a downward spiral of energy. Fuck.

BW was 192 the other night. On week...3?... Of BW upper lifts. Gotta get back into the 180s

I'll have to try that Andrew!

Idk if it would have worked on this court tho. Like...I wiped, and within 3-4 steps... Junk. I was highly disappointed with the court maintenance.

it works. it's magic. works 100x better than hand-to-shoe wipe.

i did it on the slipperiest courts :ninja:

you have to do the wet/dry wipe technique before each max jump, but should give you serious grip.

curious now :D

pc!

Still grinding along. New workouts seem to be helping! Knee feels great, flexibility seems improved as well. Vid below of Sundays SVJ check at ~194lbs. 30" platform +7" of plates. Was happy with the result post workout! I tried some RVJ off both plants earlier in the session but forgot to film. My "non natural" LR seems to be about 42" and the normal RL is hovering at 44". Both off a shortened run up and turf which feels weird lol! Can't wait for work to slow up some and try some dunk sessions!

Also! Forget I did a squat check last Friday after my lifts! Was pleasantly surprised since I have barely squatted at all and nothing heavy in a damn minute. Bar x a few to grease the groove as it were then 135x3, 225x2, 315x1 and this 365 single. I feel like I definitely had more but was quite happy to maintain this as easily as it felt, especially with no belt/knee sleeves/Oly shoes!

Thanks Andrew! I swear I don't look that big in person! I feel small in the gym and just normal in public until I see a pic of me next to someone 😂

Oof. Kingfish is a monster. I am but a peasant in comparison!

Slow week of training due to cramming all my hours into a few days at work to get a small 3 day getaway in. No real "progression" just continuing to try and get stronger/more stable in all ROMs/positionsand maintain some springiness. So, here's a vid from after Tuesdays sesh. I find depth jumps are usually a good "bounce check" for me since I haven't had time to get a a real dunk/jump season in FOREVERRRRRR (yes I'm having withdrawals).

Notes: Boxes are 27" and 39". BW 193.
