too many stops, too choppy, not adding power with each step. commence practicing with T0ddday method.

Quote
1. do a standing jump.
2. walk back and do a one-step jump. if it's higher than your SVJ, then proceed to 3. if not, continue doing one-step jumps, messing with your approach, trying different amounts of knee bend, different distances, etc., until one-step is higher than SVJ.
3. walk back a little farther and do a two-step jump. if this is higher than your one-step, proceed to 4. if not, repeat the second part of 2.
4. walk back a little farther and do a three-step jump. proceed as above.
5. etc., until the extra step no longer gets you any higher.

you are not allowed to add a step until that step consistently gives you more height over previous steps. this isn't that specific to basketball, because it grooves a very specific pattern. but if you're just trying to dunk anything at all under perfect circumstances (join the club!), then it's a good method.

For me as an ultimate athlete who has to approach the disc in many different scenarios, do you think T0ddday method is still viable? If I don't have a hop in like cowed or even your jump I'm going to go much lower.

Just something I've been thinking about, kind of unrelated to your journal sorry cowed, but could you potentially get higher than an SVJ on a quick 2 legged jump backpedaling? Could you get almost as high as with DLRVJ if your backpedal efficiency is really good?

Hey man.
Fwiw I've nv tested jumping maximally while backpedalling much. Only the rare occasion to try and  intercept  a full court pass. But I'm sure it is low as fuck.

And I believe it's definitely lower than my SVJ.

@FP: i wouldn't recommend that technique to improve jumping in a crowd or off a run. it greases a very specific groove: look at the RL plant i posted last week and compare to my normal LR and you can see the difference that it makes.

no idea whether you could get higher off a backpedal than off SVJ. but i have no doubt at all that if you practiced backpedal-jumping you'd get better at it pretty quickly.

not been posting here for awhile now, tho adarq know wats been up on my end thru IG.



it looks like its a partial tear, and honestly, to me it looks scary as fuck, like i was just that tiny bit away from a complete tear.

however, the ortho did a bunch of tests and said that the knee itself is stable, so no surgery is necessary yet.

it still hurts like a fucking bitch tho, and i have no clue what to do. i cant put any weight on that right leg, cant climb stairs properly.
its not making much sense to me, why i can experience so much pain, yet have a not so bad assessment.

any guys experience this?
