bunch of low rim dunking done at the gym yesterday, pretty sore waking up.

for the last couple of years i've been torn on whether to go off 1 foot or 2 foot, which plant to use, and even whether to go off left or right. my solution now is just to do them all lol.

A bit of footage from today:

drop step dunks from both plants on a rim i set to the second highest notch, which I think is either 9'7 or 9'8. not jumping as high as i did a couple years ago, but i definitely still am really good off of a really short approach.

actually my left leg has completely recovered, it's completely safe now to jump 1 foot off of it. it's actually my right knee that started giving me a bit of pain towards the end of last year which i'm now playing it safe with.

and yea, it's a lot of fun.

will be focusing exclusively on 1 foot off my right leg now. really don't want quadricep tendonitis to flare up at all like it did on my left knee back in 2015, so will be super super careful.

left leg holding up well and compatible with going off 1 foot. just going to keep stretching my right quad hard, and hopefully eventually i'll be able to jump off of it pain free.

just surprised myself going off two feet RL plant. was able to touch 10'2 off 1 step pretty easily, and was using my left hand too.

jumping off right leg going pretty smoothly yesterday. was dunking 2 handed on 9'. i like 2 step approaches, especially from the right side of the baseline. it's helping me with the coordination.

i really like LR right handed, but i just don't jump as high as i do compared to RL. i can get the same effect by going RL left handed, but i always read advice to work on both plants for balance. so probably going to continue doing so
