Gonna start going off 1 foot again. What do ATG squats do for 1 foot jumping though, if anyone knows? I just know that going off 1 foot is rly posterior chain dominant, so definitely gonna deadlift hard mainly.

Honestly don't think full squats will carry over much to SLRVJ. think bss or lunges and half squats carry over well to the slrvj because the joint angles are closer but you can still load up those movements a lot in a controlled way. I remember T0ddday saying that technique is much more important with the slrvj than strength levels. SLRVJ is a lot more on the velocity side of the FV curve than a dl jump so I think plyos like bounding, depth jumps, something for ankles and LOTS of SLRVJ's will build elastic strength, tendon stiffness and optimize stretch reflex lot more than doing strength work.

Sounds good. Yea, was guessing that the best plyo for the SLRVJ is the SLRVJ too lol

just got back home yesterday. went for some dunks on my 9 ft hoop and barely was able to land off the dribble lol. am wondering whats going on, i feel like im grounded or something lol. probably the 14 hour flight has to have something to do with it though, and also feeling a bit sick.

For discussion: easier to change plants or change hands?

"plant probably, but not easier to jump as high when changing your plant - I think actually doing it doesn't feel that bad though for most people, so initially they may go "I can do this!!" then months later you see they still can't get up in that plant

Changing hands is easier from the perspective of actually landing dunks, if the vert is the same.

If you look at it from the perspective of someone short with a low reach, who needs a serious vert to dunk, changing hands seems 1000x easier than changing plant, in my humble opinion.

peace!!"


damn i can relate with that so much. tried to switch from RL->LR completely twice. overall put in almost a year's time with the LR plant, but yes, i was never be able to get up with it. it also just feels weaker because my right leg is stronger than my left too.

but yea, off two feet, am going full RL for the rest of my dunking career. in terms of switching hands btw, do you think there is much incentive to go lefty?

have learned how this whole training thing is more of a marathon than it is a sprint. but at the same time, i've recently also realized how finite our time is with our training careers(and to an extent, our time in life). so for me, think i'm gonna step it up a notch as i've been really more so been going through the motions as of late with my jumping sessions. also definitely need to get back in the gym ASAP.

seems like a tricky thing when you're a 2 foot jumper but trying to increase your 1 foot to be on par so that you can be good at both. just got a bit of minor knee pain though on friday and saturday in my right knee. same thing as before with my left knee, the quad tendon. gonna take atleast a week of rest and stretch AMAP.

gonna rest up for the rest of this month. definitely seems like 1 foot is my bane though, even off my right leg. gonna keep stretching and when i return, get back to it off 2 feet.

got in around a dozen dunks on 9 ft off left leg. seems like my left leg is completely fine. can't believe i managed to injure my right knee the same way though.

gonna continue being completely hip/posterior chain dominant. don't think i'm gonna squat again for a long time. the most i'll do for quads is probably gonna be trap bar deadlifts.
