Rollerbladed for the first time in about 4 years today
1.5 hours worth of rollerblading
Dunno if it qualifies as a workout
Here's some rollerblading info

"Anaerobically, inline skating was found to be more beneficial than both running and cycling, because it is intrinsically easier and more natural for building hip and thigh muscles that are not developed in the other two forms of exercise. Unlike, cycling, inline skating develops hamstring muscles. And unlike running, inline skating is a low impact activity. 

A separate study conducted at the Human Performance Laboratory at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota found that inline skating develops muscles in the entire upper leg, rear end and hip, as well as lower back. Muscles in the upper arms and shoulders are also developed when arms are swung vigorously while skating."

Gym Workout tomorrow

disregard the stronglifts guy. avishek's advice is solid. do all exercises for a moderate amount of reps and sets, like 3-4 sets for 5-8 reps each set.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Got it

5/5/13 7 hours sleep
Gym Workout
5:34 treadmill mile (PR)
Overhead press 4x5 1x3 90lbs
Squat 4x5 1x10 190lbs
Curls with Bar: 1x8-70lbs 2x8-65lbs
Seated calf Raises: 4x8 180-200lbs
RDL: 1x8-135 1x5-185 1x3 225
Bosu Ball SL balancing: 1x210s x each leg

Made sure to go the lowest I could on every single squat I did. Some of the squats were a lot easier: If I moved my butt back, it made them harder than just moving my knees forward.
Could not grip the 225 RDL bar for shit. I felt like I could have done more weight (although I was struggling a little with 225) if I could actually hold the barbell

AP testing for school last week, no time for workouts
State Championship for frisbee sat/sun
1st day scores: 16-2, 16-0, 16-6
2nd day scores: 16-2, 10-16 (loss)
We got a cool wooden disk- state finalists.

I had some pretty nice jumps. I'll post if anyone managed to get a good picture

Back to workouts next week

I've really been slacking with my workouts
I have my reasons for not being able to work out, but they're excuses, and no one likes hearing excuses.

Anyway, last Frisbee tournament of the school year was today
It was an all-day event, and we played against 7 teams
We slammed everybody, as usual

Workout tomorrow
Gotta keep up that motivation!

5/24/13
Rows, Squats, Chest press, Bicycles (core), Squat, Deadlift, Calf Raises
Nothing new, really. Some dude at the gym helped me get my squat form down - Apparently, I was using my quads too much... So - weight drop :(
Hopefully I'm going to get better results out of using my glutes and hams more though

Same workout as last time, upped the reps/weight/sets, and added Lunges, Shoulder Press
I think I have my squat form down, so there should be no more setbacks

2 workouts since my last post
all about the same
Haven't had a lot of time on my hands since most of my quarter projects are due the last few weeks of school and I have exams all of next week

Looking forward to a summer with a lot of training

I'm still around! Just not posting as much because workouts are repetitive
Haven't done running in a while, getting out of shape

Did 5x5 500lbs on leg press about a week ago (just for fun), almost double what I started with
otherwise not much to say

Started playing a new game (League of Legends), and that's been distracting me from my goals somewhat

Workouts have slowed down to about 2-3 times a week, sometimes less - not very intense
Can do 5x5 225 below parallel with some difficulty now
SVJ a little over 28", RVJ is at 34.5" (just measured) ( :personal-record:)
Pickup game of Ultimate Frisbee 3x a week, so I think that's been my main jumping practice

38" seems very close, especially with some more intense workouts, but it's probably not gonna happen this year
Jumping high is cool and all, but I started working out my jump to have an edge in Ultimate - and I realized that jumping any higher than I do now isn't going to help me much more - my jump is already higher than pretty much anyone at high school level
I have to apply to college this year, and get a good art portfolio together and that's a lot of work

Had a question - can you become lighter on your feet? I'm pretty fast when running on a track, but my running is far from graceful and not really quick - I tend to be heavy footed

Future updates to come

there's a whole thread on that, i think entropy started it. in short: yes, you can improve your movement efficiency in all kinds of ways. if you work on agility drills (line hops, agility ladder, running around cones, that kind of thing) consistently, you'll get better at moving your feet. it's no different than any other skill: some people are more gifted than others but everyone can improve to a degree with practice.

What you're describing is usually a sign of lack of calf and possibly hamstring strength. Improve on that.

Back for a bit

7/23/14 workout

BW: 172 lbs

Full Squat 5x5 225lbs
Chest Press 5x5 145lbs
Lat Pulldown 5x5 165 lbs
Bicep Curls with bar 5x5 70 lbs
Tricep Pulldown 5x5 80 lbs

Current RVJ around 30", SVJ at 28"
I haven't done any plyo's and my gym workouts have slowed to about once a week.. Still, I do squat almost every time I go to the gym, so my SVJ hasn't suffered

I have a question: Is there a thread regarding a pre-game workout or workout pattern to max out your jump during the game?

Also: Do you squat with your knees going over your feet, or stop them when they are parallel to your toes? I understand this activates your posterior muscles more, but does it actually help with jumping?

For pre workout, you really want to do a lot of mobility stuff, leg swings and stretch hip flexora, you don't really want to stretch much else till after workout.

I think everyone squat is going to look different depending on limb length proportions. I'm 6,5 with really long femeur so it's really hard to get down without leaning forward some bit.

No pics or vids come up on my messages just an empty space where they are supposed to be, anyone know why..
