- daily routine
knees better, got really good sleep last night for the first time since last weekend. maybe sleep correlates super acutely to knee and/or other joint pain? something to track.

was going to post a DAMMIT to your previous post.. really good to hear that your knees are feeling better (so far).

sub-optimal sleep definitely makes me more achy. there's probably a bunch of studies out there to support or debunk it.

god what a lost week.

WEIGHT: ???
SORENESS: none
ACHES/INJURIES: knees-ish: see below
MENTAL STATE: very good

- warm up
right knee bothering me from waking until about halfway through this warm up. then no discomfort until later.

- skater jump x 20

- one-step RVJ x 5,5

- DLRVJ x 20-25
first 10 or so with vest, rest without vest. hit 33+ on a couple of vested jumps, 36 on the first unvested and then a bunch more in the 34-35 range. inconsistent but some really good. have some vids, will post.

- bound-bound-jump x 3,3
knee discomfort back immediately

- squat
on 185 warm up set my left knee started feeling crazy. two things: it's usually my right knee that hurts so this is extra annoying; and i've never quite had this feeling before, like shit was criss-crossing inside my knee. scrapped it. will lift tomorrow.

now i have to go help my dad cut down a tree. that should be fun, at least.

WEIGHT: 176.6 (173.6)
SORENESS: none
ACHES/INJURIES: none
MENTAL STATE: amazing

- warm up

- DLRVJ x 20+
asked random dude shooting around on the other end to throw me a couple lobs. was really close on the first, on the second i pushed that motherfucking ball through the motherfucking hoop. missed a couple of others, including one that i front-ironed and ended up on my ass but was sooo close. hit clean 37s on at least 3-4 other jumps.

 :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record:

- squat 345 x 1; 355 x 1; 365 x 1
the last was an all-time PR, as well. 2.1xbw

was planning to just do a normal weight workout but the court was open, i was feeling awesome, and so i adjusted my plans. i'm grinning like an idiot and kind of feel like i want to cry. skipped rest of weight workout because i have to go to easter lunch with my grandma. who cares.

thank you andrew. thank you. thank you t0ddday for the recent help, i haven't followed it exactly but god damn if the half-assed way i have followed it didn't work. thanks vag, raptor, flander, acole, kelly and lance in absentia, avishek in absentia, and everyone else on here for being an awesome community and helping me stay on the grind.

This doesn't come as a surprise at all, it was just a matter of time before it happened. I mean it was obvious from some of the videos of you from months ago that you're very close. Now that it did, you just gotta stay healthy and keep going at it, make it happen consistently.

And considering how you're the kind of guy that's not exactly the most reactive in the world, I think maybe you have some reserves of getting a bit more reactive and have a bit better movement efficiency, which means you can get even higher just getting better at these things, just maintaining your current strength.

So... the sky's the limit? :D

PS. And... remember... Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit. #avishekBlessings #demTendons

really happy for you man. I wish I could have seen this session live. If Elon Musk ever invents a time machine, I would use it to watch this entire session. From jumps/dunks to squats, sounds like you were in straight up beast mode today. This is the kind of session that creates a new baseline.. keep that in mind. This is a huge mental & physical hurdle that you've overcome. So in the next few weeks, if you get someone to throw you lobs, don't be surprised if you crush a few even harder than you did today..

sounds like you had so much pop today.. nuclear pop. These are the days that make everything so very much worth it.

Maybe we should analyse how he ended up with this PR day... what preceded this? What happened in the last week or so, how did everything unfold?

My mind can't analyse jack shit right now as I'm headed towards even deeper depression, so can anybody summarize?

My mind can't analyse jack shit right now as I'm headed towards even deeper depression, so can anybody summarize?

it's a good question. the only correlation i can suggest is that there seems to be a positive relationship between squatting heavy and then having 3-4 days of no weights and minimal intense work. most of the times i've PR'd jumps it's been on weekends after i missed a squat workout later in the week for some reason or other, usually not on purpose. i've also jumped best around late morning or midday. yesterday's milestone was achieved after breakfast but some of the other best jumping days have been fasted.

here are some vids from saturday. can't wait to get one up of an actual dunk.

in your videos and i have seen other dunkers either wipe the bottom of their shoes or apply something to the bottom of the shoes, is it dust so to make it grip more to the floor type used on courts.

the opposite of dust. i wipe sweat on the bottoms of my shoes to make them stick. can't tell you how dusty that floor is.

I was actually thinking about that as I was watching your skater jumps... I was like "how can he trust that the foot won't slip when he jumps from side to side, I would be terrified" and secondly "how doesn't he slip?!"
