The usual achey feeling

Achilles improving.
Left quad tendon a bit worse from those 50kg eccentric single leg squats, so still too heavy...even though I felt perfectly fine during the session.
Will try 30kg next time...

Posterior chain pretty sore when I woke up, but ok in the afternoon

Changing up my Achilles insertion rehab approach.
According to recent research, the inner lower part is what gets damaged here, but that area gets the lowest stress when the calf is stretched.
It gets the most stress at max flexion, so that area actually gets stress shielded and gets weaker over time in everyday life and movements...
So I need to stress the calf work right up at the very top

https://www.podiumrunner.com/training/injury-prevention/how-to-beat-an-insertional-achilles-injury/
Quote
By placing strain gauges inside different sections of the Achilles tendons and then loading the tendons with the ankle positioned in a variety of angles, researchers from the University of North Carolina discovered that the back portion of the Achilles tendon is exposed to far greater amounts of strain (particularly when the ankle was moved upward) while the forward section of the tendon, which is the section most frequently damaged with insertional tendinitis, was exposed to very low loads. The authors of the study suggest that the lack of stress on the forward aspect of the Achilles tendon (which they referred to as a tension shielding effect) may cause that section to weaken and eventually fail.
Eccentric Treatment

The treatment of an Achilles insertional tendinitis should thus be to strengthen the forward-most aspect of the tendon (after rest has reduced swelling in the sheath around the tendon). This can be accomplished by performing a series of eccentric load exercises through a partial range of motion. It is particularly important to exercise the Achilles tendon with the ankle pointing down as far as possible (i.e., standing way up on tiptoes), because this position places greater amounts of load on the more frequently damaged forward portion of the tendon.

Also doing a reset on my left quad tendon rehab, and starting back up from the bottom.
Been going too hard, too heavy, too soon...

I was worried I would be weaker on press and pullups today due to doing them everyday so far, albeit at low intensity for sets of 20, but I actually felt much stronger today, and on a calorie deficit.

Achey feeling all over.
Took it easy today

Second COVID vaccine tomorrow



BBall practise - 43 mins

Easy BBall session of dribbling and shooting practise.
No hard cuts or jumping, apart from some low effort Euro steps

A bit rusty at first , but it came back quickly

Used a crappy court at a school a block away from my house... court is sloped... but not too many options in this COVID lockdown period, as the better courts in other schools are sealed up.
Some monkey bar complex here for dips and pull ups

Monday 6th September 2021

Achey upper back and posterior chain, adductors - not so much from BBall, but from the weights the day before.
Tendons feel a bit sore

Got Second COVID vaccine this morning, but not feeling any effects later at night.

Thought about taking a complete rest day, apart from soft tissue work and stretching.
But decided to do some ISOs, and resetting things back

I'm going to start using the collagen/vitamin C combo pre workout to help out

Posterior chain and upper back still a bit sore.
Pigged out the last 2 days.... back on the fat loss today....

All tendons feeling much better - things looking up.
Right achilles insertion still needs work, but left achilles insertion/patella/quad tendon is now into stage 2 rehab

Although recent changes to my rehab approach should get the right achilles up to scratch now

Damn I miss stuff like this. Just finding an article or a podcast, video or something that has some new ex sci info and you just read it and go "this changes everything ! .. I need to rethink my whole approach to training." Never has anything given me such an amount of aha moments as ex sci. To think.. its still an incomplete discipline. Theres still discoveries to be made ! This golden age we live in of scientific advancement cant last, it will at least taper (imo.) Im so grateful to have even took part in it, in my own small, incomplete way

Yeah, but I think it's mostly in how the body works that still needs to be figured out with research

Posterior chain moderately sore from the Good Mornings, upper back, calves and quads a bit as well.

Achilles feeling better - left side looks to be just about healed, it didn't ache at all upon waking and walking. Right side still does but less this morning and the stinging feeling for each stride is gone.

Saturday 11th September 2021

posterior chain pretty sore from yesterday when I woke up, but ok later in the day.
You can literally feel the muscles recovering each hour...

Left quad tendon seems fine, even though it did register a 2/10 pain on the single leg squats yesterday

6 sec down, 3 sec up - 80kg x5 @ RPE 8

Started with my slow tempo full range squats, and there was no tendon pain as I worked up, so ditched squatting down to the bench and went full range for all squats - nice!
Got hard to maintain the concentric tempo at 80kg, especially the last rep which I had to power up a bit in 2 secs as the fatigue set in, and fast twitch muscles kicked in...
So next time I will just move the concentric in a controlled manner, but still have the 6 sec eccentric.

A2) SSB split squat - oly shoes, single arm supported - 1 min rest between sides - 3 sec down and up
BW x5, 10kg x5, 30kg x5, 35kg x 12

Went up 5kg, and no tendon pain

Quads and posterior chain pretty sore.



bodyweight - without shoes = 85.8kg

BBall practise + jumps @ WLC Outdoor courts - 55 mins

1) 15 mins dribble and ball control drills
2) low to medium intensity Euro step practice against 8 feet netball rim - LR and RL
3) 10 or so 90% effort jumps/dunks against 8 feet netball rim
3) a few series of low intensity march skips, lateral skips with arm swing, backwards walking, and snake sliding foot dance move practise

Went to my usual outdoor court.
Busy so I just mostly did dribbling drills, and moves up to a fairly high intensity.

Then some jumps and dunks against 8 feet netball rim
Rusty, so didn't jump too hard
Some 4/10 left quad tendon pain on single leg jumps, off the left leg, but fine for everything else. Much less than before though, so rehab is working, it shouldn't flare up as I feel ok now walking downstairs.

Considering that I'm rusty, sore, fatigued, heavier and weaker, to be only jumping 3 inches lower than my current bests when i weighed 79kg makes me happy!
My feet, ankles and calves felt really strong and stable today, despite the soreness from yesterday.
Just felt light on my feet.

Standing vertical - got elbow to 8 feet rim, that's also where the top of my head is. About 1.5+ feet from elbow to my finger tips, so about a 9.5+ feet touch, around 26-27 inches.
Single leg jump, an inch lower
RL plant approaach jump off a few steps, about 3 inches higher, so 29-30 inches? Elbow reached about 3 inches higher than 8 feet netball rim

So I'm hoping to jump at least 8 inches higher across the board by the end of summer in 6 months time - where I plan to be ripped, 12+ kg lighter, healthy, fresh and much stronger.

Lower back felt achey after the jumps - probably due to fatigue from yesterday combined with absorbing the jump forces.
Felt better after some hamstring floor touch stretch "walks"
