5/17
BW: 177.2
Workout #1: GPP session #1

Squat (slightly below parallel):warmup, 245 x5, 255 5x5, 2:15 min breaks
BSS: bodyweight x vicious groin pain
BP: 125 3x8, 2:15 min breaks
Rack high pull: bothering sinuses
misc. groin rehab x 10 mins

Notes: Groin pain is pretty bad despite the fact I have been doing jack shit lately. Time to start daily groin rehab again.

5/18
Same level of sickness as yesterday.
BW: 177.4
Workout #2: SLRVJ session #1

misc. groin rehab x10 mins
3-step SLRVJ x30: maxed at 28.25"~28.5"

Notes:Oddly enough I switched from right-handed vertec touches to left-handed vertec touches. I also seem to get up higher with slightly more knee bend. My previous best 3-step SLRVJ was 29" (@181 BW) on a bball court.
It's very possible I PR'ed today because:
1. My vertec measurements are with Nike Frees, but today I was jumping with cleats, which have less elevation
2. Dirt is very soft: the bit of ground where I planted is at least .5" lower than the dirt around it

BW:178
Workout #3: GPP session #2

Rack Pull: 205x8, 235x8, 255x8, 265x5, 275x5, 285x5, 295x5
BP: 130 8,8,7
agility ladder stuff x 30 mins

5/21
BW: 184 carb loaded. Also appetite is back, I'm gonna have to start counting calories if I want to maintain sub-180 BW.

So I have 2 tryouts tomorrow, from 8am-4pm and my sickness is still hanging around. Randomly fell asleep for 3 hours today despite getting enough sleep the last few days. My groin pain is moderate and I feel pretty slow. These are the last tryouts for both of these teams and I haven't gone to any of the other tryouts cause of sickness or other reasons. I am historically bad at playing in rain and I haven't been throwing these last 2 weeks. So pretty much I am screwed unless I can pull some magic beans out of my ass or something.

So here's the plan:
1. Get up early. 5:30am is a safeish bet
2. Stretch a lot, do some meditation, some glutivation etc
3. Brew a shitload of Yerba Mate, which is the only thing that reliably enhances my performance
4. Come out early to get some throws in

I should have some "official" stats to post tomorrow. Not expecting anything good.

EDIT: tryout went decent. got skied pretty terribly by a skinny 5' 10" black guy. I tried to go up off my left leg with my left arm... He told me he can dunk off a lob which puts him at like 37" slrvj. All my jumps were awful, my legs felt like jelly the first half of the tryout. Pretty much no highlights: consistent mediocrity. 2nd tryout cancelled. Also I am out of shape.

sucks about hype. have you done a postmortem with yourself on why you got cut?

good luck with the abstentions, seems like a good call.

Lots of things. LOTS:
1. I'm kind of out of shape. Notice myself getting tired too easily during points. My throws, vertical and decision making have a hard drop-off when I'm tired. Harder drop-off than most people, I've noticed. Or maybe I run too hard right away and don't manage my energy well enough.
2. My offensive cutting needs more awareness and variety.
3. My first 0-20m speed is considerably worse than my 20-40m speed. First 3 steps are way more important to Ultimate.
4. I suck at throwing to girls. I overthrow my hucks to fast dudes, you can imagine what my hucks look like playing mixed.
5. My in-game break throws tend to be high release which is not good. Not enough faking.
6. Unless I'm feeling reaally in the zone, on cutter defense I play a step-off deep which essentially gives the other team free 5-10 yard in-cuts unless I outrun my guy hardcore. I HAVE TO STOP DOING THIS.
7. My in-game awareness of the wind is pretty bad.
8. I'm really bad at making friends. Honestly my biggest weakness, cause Ultimate is all about chemistry and trust. My biggest strength is probably winning 50-50's (high vert+great hands) but fat load of good that does me if no one trusts me enough to throw hucks. I don't think I got thrown a single deep shot during the Hype tryout that went bad. Or maybe my cut timing is really bad or something. I dunno.

5/23
BW: 181.2 (been going way over calorie count with shitty food)
Relapsed on NoFap 2 days ago. Doesn't matter, will keep at it

league game: 90 mins. No highlights except a nice toe drag to save a pass from going out of bounds. Lost 15-10. No turns or drops either though.. Hmm. Defensively played below average.

Workout #4: GPP session #3
BP: 130 3x8 (2 min rests)
Deep squat: 245 x5, 260 5x5 (2:30 min rests)
Rack Pull: 135x10, 205x8, 255x8, 275x8 (4 min rest before last set)
Pullup: 6,6,2 (2:30 min rests)
SL Plank banded knee drives: 15,10,15 each leg

Squat really strong, went ATG for the last reps of set 5. Rep 6 of 275 rack pull felt so easy, but reps 7,8 low back almost collapsed... Which means problems with glute activation.

NEXT SESSION NEEDS TO BE SPRINTS!!!!!

interesting. getting into better shape is simple (run more) and improving cutting nearly as simple (drills, with a partner if you can swing it -- look up football route running tips). but the easiest fix from a tryout perspective might be your throws. i had to learn from harsh criticism in college that my hucks were not reliable enough to be attempting as many as i was. it was embarrassing but good advice. a couple years into club my throws improved somewhat and i started handling more. and even then i was fairly conservative.

so, some unsolicited advice (which i know you love hearing from me): next time you have a tryout, when you get the disc focus on completing every single pass, no matter how conservative. no hucks unless someone is open by 15 yards and there's no wind. get it to a handler or at the very least let someone else turf it! if you make a couple of standout plays on O or especially D, and don't make glaring mistakes, you've made a good impression.

5/26
BW: 178.6 post-workout, haven't eaten anything all day
Had an amazing dream that included exotic architecture and otherworldly beings. The message seemed to highlight my current dry spell without making art and internal struggle with materialism. First dream I memorized in a while, kind of want to start keeping a dream journal again. Would be cool to have lucid dreams again, haven't had one in a while.

Pickup with high school kids : 80 mins. Handled on offense and played mark in the cup on defense. Throws not looking good: more specifically field vision. Don't think I turned any swings or uplines or any easy throws. Mark is decent. Got like 3 or 4 pointblocks, granted it's against high school kids.

Workout #7, Track #1

Warmup: lunge walks, butt kicks, high knees, leg swings, lateral leg swings
Drills: A-skips 50mx2, B-skips 50mx2
15-20m sprints, focus on start x8
100m sprints (100%) x2 5-min recovery

Gassed after second 100m. Was still kind of dizzy 20 minutes later. Should've eaten something today...............
Runs didn't feel fast or slow. Traps and upper back muscles were a little sore immediately after the second 100m.

5/27

Workout #8, SPP #1

slip n' slide layouts x 45 mins
warm up: leg swings, high knees, butt kicks
Testing new cleats: various cutting patterns, focus on acceleration x 30 mins
40m sprints (100%) x 6

Kind of just fucking around. Was gonna vid the layouts but it's kind of pointless until I can set up some sort of measurement for height and distance. Video will also give me useful things like GCT and leg/body angles for different amounts of steps/different runup speeds.

I've always wondered just how much extra distance a layout gives over a full sprint. I know some track runners have used dives to finish races with mixed results.

DualNBack x 20

5/28
BW: 179.0
Right groin very tight, strangely enough.

Throws x 60 mins: mostly fucking around, ironing out my lefty backhand upwind. Towards the end it was pretty consistent and accurate to about 25 yards.

5/28

Had a mixed tryout today (mid level team). Really happy with how I played.
Highlights:
-Layout D poaching the cutting lane! I've never gotten one of these (poaching the in-cut) before, my awareness is improving.
-One of the captains complimented my quickness (initial acceleration speed)!!! All those sprint starts are definitely helping.
-Mark was great. Don't remember being broken at all.
-We ran a suicide at the end (about 600m) and I finished first (out of like 25-30 dudes, 15-20 girls) barely beating out one of the captains! Had to lay down for like 20 mins afterwards lol.

Right hamstring pretty achy, gonna take a few days-week to focus on core/upper body.

5/30

Drove down to VA to watch Ultimate Nationals teams scrimmages (mens, womens and mixed). So many of the best players of the USA there. Took a good amount of notes: the biggest difference between me and the players on the mens team is their crazy speed endurance. Definitely gotta hit my aerobic system hard this summer. I'm thinking swimming, rollerblading and biking are all great options that will hopefully not take away much of my speed gains.

Workout #9, GPP #5

BP: 115 x 10, 135 x 8, 140 x 8, 8, 5 (2 min rests)
Superset x4:
- Leg Raises (off bench) 20, 20, 20, 16
- Right Banded Clams 10-15
Superset x3:
- Pullups: 8, 7, 4
- Left Banded Clams 10-15

5/31

Mixed tryout/pickup (low-mid level: this is my college's team, new this year. Mix of A and B team guys/girls)

Highlights:
-Got open on almost every cut.
-People complimented my quickness again. This has never happened prior to the last tryout .

Lowlights:
-Tweaked my back. Groin also felt off. My body can't handle my new stride frequency.
-Throws looked like shit. due to sweaty hands and also poor wrist snap.
-2 unforced drops. I pride myself on my catching, this is REAL bad news.
-Got really flustered around a pretty girl. Dammit lol

Pretty much no highlights: consistent mediocrity. 2nd tryout

"EDIT: tryout went decent. got skied pretty terribly by a skinny 5' 10" black guy. I tried to go up off my left leg with my left arm..."

I'm not at all trying to call you out as racist, but I have to ask - is this some ultimate frisbee thing where race is always mentioned?  I've just played traditional sports - football, basketball, track but it sounds really foreign to hear this but it's something I feel like I have now heard multiple times from people who play sports like lacrosse or ultimate frisbee - this rhetoric of "oh they had this one fast black kid."   Maybe it's just coincidence, but considering all my friends who got into lacrosse and frisbee are white and I'm mixed it was enough to make me feel pretty weird about those sports.  Just wondering.

personal experience:

Kids on my h.s. basketball team (JV) said stuff like that alot.. but the team was mostly white. They didn't grow up playing basketball with mostly black people, like I did. They were always extra-intimidated when we'd go into an "all black school" such as Ely or Dillard. I'd actually get way more playing time during those games because I could break their full court press, lol. So to me it was just normal, and I was always the rarity (because I was white) growing up. When I was younger people would call me white boy, Larry Bird, and eventually Jason Williams. lmao.

I'd just suspect that a sport that is majority x-race, athletes would mention the race of someone who is y-race.. seems common from what i've seen. Usually it's not racist, it's just some kind of distinguishing feature that somehow is used to label someone.. However, i've witness it used in racist ways.

I don't know if I ever mentioned it here, but, that kind of stuff was what actually made me not play varsity my senior year (junior year I broke my wrist). It's one of my few "life changing moments". The varsity coach was giving me a ride home after a summer league game and was criticizing the way I handle the ball. That game he benched me several times for actually driving in and scoring, or getting fouled; because I did it before we made 3 passes. Anyway, he told me straight up, no joke, right to my face in the car: "we don't play black ball here".. I was done after that. He kept asking me to try out/play, he had no idea why I wasn't. I really wish I had actually told him why I didn't care to play for him. That really bothered me & it still does today. That coach really ripped something from me, I really loved the game, but I lost alot of love for it when he hit me with that.
