Ah also, found it interesting that I could basically walk by all but one guy all day and get in the lane. Judging by how easy it was to get by guys off no move or a single move I feel like I may be quicker right now than when I was lighter!!! This ATG training seems to be on point.

WOW. I didn't realize I hadn't updated in awhile.

Ok quick life update for those that care: I quit the nice paying job due to upper management BS. So I took a few weeks off from everything including training. Weight went up to 203lbs before I said enough is enough. Started training again in late January with a modified ATG style split workout. I gained a few more lbs the first week or two then added some actual cardio. Currently I'm back down to 194 and just now starting to expand on some plyo work and feel some spring coming back. This virus BS is hitting the bank account so the race cars are in indefinite hold sadly but life is life and I can handle that.

Current "best" lifts: BS 405lbs. FS 305lbs. Deadlift 425lbs. Hang clean 185x3.

Last week I started shooting around some as well and timing for dunking off lobs is ALLLLLL off. Speed on dribble dunks is awful as well. I expect those to somewhat come back with reps.

For now my local gym is still open but work and basically everything else is up in the air. I've got a semi thought out plan of attack for a home based workout if necessary but with no weights it won't be the best as my body responds to heavier loads better than reps. Training would turn more towards a ballistic approach.

So that's about it. Managed to grab a quick vid of some warmup depth jumps and Tuesdays top back squat single. Struggled more than last week (first week at 405) but it was also 2:30 am and I was exhausted lol I'll take it.

Sigh. Just got informed the gym is closing for two weeks starting tomorrow. I'll get one more lift in tonight and then...the struggle begins. Finding a way to train maximally at home.
