Thanks LBSS, they're going to start me on a different med. The last one (rizatriptan) well, it definitely took away the migraine but holy F the side affects. I was useless the rest of the day. No bueno.

On another note this is the longest "episode" I've had. Going on 4 weeks daily. Normally they last about two weeks. I have cluster migraines behind my right eye fwiw. They differ from a normal migraine in that these are sharp, stabbing bursts of pain that come and go as fast as they appear. Usually if i can catch it IMMEDIATELY I can knock it back to a dull pain in my ass lol but lately they're impressively strong so we tried a prescription migraine med and it incapacitates me for hours lol dizzy, barely awake, feels like I ran a marathon, nausea, etc etc. Bleh. Just picked up the new prescription so... We shall see.

So I did what any same person would do after theyve taken double the recommended dosage of Excedrin migraine and Ibuprofen yesterday... I lifted 🙄😁🤷‍♂️ Probably helped because it lessened after I threw up post sled drives. I did gain some weight the past week so BW was 195.5lbs but I felt decently springy all things considered. Managed to try some SL running box jumps to try and get my form better. Took a clip of a few for reference later and filmed a 2 step approach on a 51" box DL. I REALLY should have filmed the first two one step attempts. The RL plant was decent but I avoided busting my face by about a millimeter on the LR plant 😂. I'll post the vids I did take in a few.


Annnnd that's basically my last week or so in review. Yay.

Said short vid clip below

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y4oTByxB7U" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y4oTByxB7U</a>

The SL stuff is super intriguing. Here I seem to be more a "power" jumper but when I jump in games it's more a "speed" jump. Now here it's probably more because I'm slowing down consciously and trying to out effort into correct movements and triple extension, etc. But it's the same when in a dunk session vs a game. I just can NOT transition speed during training off one leg. It HAS to be a mental block from WAY back. I cant think of any other reason? I definitely jump much higher off one in games. I'm hoping drilling the motions as much as I have my DL jumps will help. I've already seen an improvement in my LR DL jump so.im hoping this carries over as well. That all said for a "low effort" ( it wasn't that low lol) these are EASILY higher than I was a few months ago off one leg. This would have been ME SL early this year so thats positive.

Has anyone here tried to transition from a power type to a speed type SL jump? I was told I was a speed jumper in HS T&F and it comes out more in games obviously but I feel I'd be able to maximize it more if I could recreate it in training. My head tells my brain is subconsciously switching to a power style in training to lessen the braking stresses on my knee and shin? Makes sense given my extra weight since HS (195 vs 160ish). Hmmm.

crazy box jumps as usual. sl one looking smooth.

with single vs double, the simple process of "thinking" about the jump might cause too much interference with the speed of a single leg jump. for a double, you're on the ground longer, so it's probably not as much of a problem. but for single, those conscious mental signals slow it down a bit. in a game, you're mind is on something else (or blank and just reacting) and you just perform the movement relaxed & free.

so maybe don't worry about it as much in training. because in games/amp'd up sessions, you probably will be able to let loose more and get that extra performance bump. as long as you're getting those movements in, it'll get you ready for the epic jumps.

:trollface:

towards the end of my dunk lyfe i did. i rushed into it though. after a few months of L-SLRVJ'n, my thigh got wrecked and I couldn't jump. I was getting up pretty good too.

but it happened out of nowhere.

one day i just wasn't landing any DLRVJ dunks, so I said let me try an L-SLRVJ and i got way up. was crazy. then i started trying to shift completely into a single leg jumper, which felt much more normal for me.

these jumps happened when my left leg (jump leg) was really wrecked. sux. had tons of potential with it and was enjoying it more than dlrvj (because of the speed component).

Good points for sure. I think for now I'll try to double up my amount of SL jumps vs DL in training and focus on getting proper position and then adding as much speed as possible in the confined space I have. I definitely agree SL jumping is not only more "fun" but more applicable in half court sets for sure.

Also planning to ramp up some more strenuous depth jumps twice a week just to get some more tendon recruitment. At the end of July I'll program some heavy supra max quarters and hang cleans and see what happens. Usually those help me peak pretty well. Plan to hit them 2x a week for 2 weeks or so and see if I can get bouncy bouncy.

Still struggling to lose weight. SMH. I LOOK leaner and I'm heavier lol which isn't necessarily a bad thing but I'm sure it's not helping the SL journey lol

Hope you US guys had a nice 4th and all your fingers are intact!
