Weight loss down to 244.6 lbs since starting this thread weighing 249.8 lbs.
Last time I played basketball. 1995. Got to relearn all skills over again. If you're aging, don't quit BB. It may help keep you feeling younger.

In my newly posted video, stop it at :57. The blurry blue container with the pillow on top contains my workout equipment. Everything inside it can be purchased at Walmart.

Just tried a jump on my measure board. The landing was painful. I need to stop doing that until I can drop another 20 lbs.

I mixed some mustard with pancake mix to make it a paste and see how that works next time.

Duh moment on the leap board. Put some blank, white paper on it, and the mustard will show up better.

Here's the link to my video describing my theory about how to train to improve vertical leap, and exactly how I do it in my small apartment.

If you do heavy dead lifts at home that has a yard, you can use my technique and drop the barbell at the top of the lift on the grass/ground/sand. It would be nice if some younger guy's on this forum to try my technique for a few months and see what happens.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFWLLTa1Qdw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFWLLTa1Qdw</a>

solid presentation on that video.

the exercise itself looks decent but awkward -> same leg/same arm seems awkward to me. i feel like using opposite arm/leg might feel a bit more stable and allow you to get a "better" angle on the "single leg squat" while holding the db right underneath you. have you tried that? if so: like or dislike it?

if i didn't have barbells/rack etc, i imagine that exercise would have some effectiveness. i'd personally do other stuff as well, not just that exercise.

i did single arm db exercises and found them effective (sl db squat, sl db rdl, sl db bench), but I never did those variations "concentric only" with a drop.

hope your knee is ok.
