Hit back/core Friday. Slept a ton Sat 😁 Then did some speed work Sunday and felt really great.

Played an hour and half of hoops tonight from 7-830 (had to get back home for the game!) nothing really crazy. Got loose, broke a sweat, dunked 3x after the game and shut it down lol!

Squatssss! (at 130am lmfao) Sort of tired but the gym was empty so I went a little apeshit and got myself hyped up.

warmups+jumps

BW: 182.5lbs
Backsquat:
bar x12, 135 x8, 225 x5, 315 x3, 365, 405. Thought about going for 425 again but said nah.... and did this...

405 x2!!!!!
405x2, 385x2, 315x5  :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record: Super amped up... so i did it again lol!

Front squat:
225 x3, 275 x2, 315, 315, 275 x2, 275x2.

Circuits of step ups, calf raises, leg extensions and box jumps to finish. Quite happy with tonight! Now to sleep!

wait how is 315x5 a pr for you if you're squatting 425? i've done 315 x 5,5,5 and never maxed more than 360 or 365.

he meant the double(s) with 425 is a PR .. not the 315 set. which he has done a page ago in the log  :P

My bad. Was excited/tired af. Definitely could have logged that more clearly lol! For future reference..
 the 405x2 was the PR. Which I repeated 3 mins later lol!

Weighed 182.5lbs tonight then proceeded to get hammered on Chopin. I mean... if youre going to drink do it right lol!

Ive pretty much decided to cut back on upper body. Anyone have any links to well thought out/planned BW upper body routines? If like to cut to about 177lbs without killing my squat/deadlift or looking anorexic:(

Lets see... recap! Back/biceps Tuesday. Speed day Wednesday morning was garbage (saw the soon to be ex wife there, bleh, she wasnt cordial this time. Ruined my mood. I just want to be happy. Her too.). Played full court from 6-1030. Sheesh. Quad cramped at 1030 when I came down the lane and went to dunk. Planned a big 2 hander... planted and the right quad said nah. Ended up barely getting a 1 hander basically jumping off a weird ass psuedo single leg plant lol! Much stretching. Thursday was deadlifts. Failed at 475 for a single? But got a 4x2 at 445 and a 315 for 10 then moved on to BSS and assy work. Weird. Did some hip thrusts at the end. 135 for 12 paused. Need to work on glute activation. Hit chest andnahoulders sunday (wow... been a while lol). Then squats last night

BW: 183lbs

BS: bar x12, 135 x8, 225 x5, 315 x3, 365, 405, 425.
405 x2
405 x1
385 3x2
315 x8

FS: 225 x3, 275 x2, 295, 315, 295 3x2.

Stepups, calf raises and leg extensions with a ton of core work. Finished with paused hip thrusts at 135 again.

Not bad.

Back and core on Tuesday then hooped Wed at 185lbs (eek). Hyper extended my right elbow slightly in the first game :( Hand would randomly go numb for the next hour. Made shooting fun and painful. So I drove a lot. Had a 2 hand put back and a 1 hander on a kid. Felt bouncy for 185. Tossed a few lobs and was getting up decently so I attempted my first ever double up.

Legit. Scary. AF. lol! Only tried once and I probably should have ahd the kid stand up a little more but he said he was 5'8" so i was like... mehhh. Got hung on the rim. Someone got video I think lol!

Skipped speed work after wards. Probably will do that today since Indont believe pulling heavy deadlifts with the elbow sore is smart.

We have very similar strength levels but you are 40lbs or so lighter than me... makes me wonder if I could actually jump and not feel like I'm glued to the ground if I lost some weight... haha anyways good work as usual man. I'm very curious to see that dunk video.

Yup. One of the guys took a vid on his cell! Sorry if the quality is crap :( I think...THINK... that with some practice and better positioning I might be able to pull this off. Wayyy easier to time than a lob btl and I obviously can get up higher than of the dribble.

Leonel, dude, stsrt a cut and try it! I feel crazy different going from 182-184 down to 175!

I most probably will at some point in the future. Right now I'm putting all my focus on weightlifting and it's hard or almost impossible to increase strength while in a caloric deficit.

Still lifting. Seemed to have stalled on squats at 405x2 Bs and 315 x1 fs. my lower back is giving out on the fs. Legs have the power it seems. Going to switch it up a little. Desdlifted today.  475x1 top single. 445 5x2 and 315 x12 along with some core and BSS 185 2x6 esch leg. Cut it short to hoop. FINALLY boomed a mill off glass. No one got vid butnthey wanted to see if i could hit my head on the backboard after the windmill lol! So we videoed that and another jump before I did some drills.  Going to eat and then go do accessory work.

wow that is like a 45 in RVJ.... insane.... do u have relatively thin wrists and ankles? i heard that those kinds of body types are mesomorphs and can get up really high....
33yrs | 12in SVJ | >45% BF | 220LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 225lb max squat paused

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

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

Probably? Im not an endomorph and I dont think im an ectomorph although i was super lean/skinny when i was younger. I graduated at 155-160lbs from high school. Had never touched a weight at the time but since I have id lean towards being a meso due to structures?

And thanks man. I figured around 45" maybe 46" at best. I jeed those other 2" lol (thats what she said!). I need to start dunking a lot more. My run up and speed were garbage but the landing was so easy. Normally from that height i collapse a lot more.

Lets see... squatted Monday morning. 5 405 singles and 315 for 8 back squat. fs was up to a 315 single and then 3x3 at 275. Some calf work and core work but took it easy volume wise because we were hooping at night, didnt want to be too fatigued. Played like shit the first 3 games (5v5 full). Its like my subconscious knows i did legs so my body holds back. Well... someone talked some shit after the 3rd game about teams being uneven and no one beating the team that was winning... mistake. I came alive. Locked down the other teams best player. Zero points. and dropped 12 of our 15 points (by 1s/2s to 15 win by 2). Drives. Stepback 3s. NBA range pullup on the break....it was dirty even by my standards. Last game was more of the same but had a nasty crossover>hesi shot fake move into a layup that had my guy on one knee 😆.

Hit back/biceps/core today at 3pm. Then went to the court at 730 (closes at 830) just to get some shots up. 2 games of 2v2 then dunked for about 8 mins at the end. Recorded it and Im about to watch it.

I may just upload it raw and unedited. Its just over 7 mins long but shows the 'warmup' then some dunks and finally 2 jumps if you guys wanna see how a normal (shortened) session goes (in terms of warm up/breaks/misses lol/etc). Any interest or edit it down?

7 mins of a few dunks, some misses, some jumpers, a little messing around with the handle and me just being me. Enjoy!

If you watched it all I should have hit the pump reverse and that windmill was probably the 'easiest' so far in terms of effort.
