Yea that's what I was thinking. Really not optimal going alternating between LR and RL during my dunk sessions. I think RL may be bothering my left quadricep tendon, but I'm not sure. I know if I stick to RL I'll be able to progress fast, I've dunked off the dribble before off RL.

edit: does anyone else have a visibly bigger and noticeably stronger leg? my right leg definitely is my bigger and stronger leg.

hmm, still determined to make this RL plant work again. gonna ramp up deadlifts to 1-2 times a week, strengthen hamstrings with curls, VMO with TKE's, and then keep untightening the quads with foam rolling and stretching. also might start sprinting, but unsure of what distance i should run.

slowly getting adjusted back to the RL plant. the first dunk off the dribble is from 2 summers ago, august 2014. i remember that day, i was jumping pretty well, and i thought i crushed it lol. my dunks today were pretty casual too, definitely think i had more in the tank. but yea, i can spot the difference of hip involvement already, and gonna continue to add more.

the difference between 1 and 2-3 is HUGE. look how much longer and faster your last step is. nice.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

sunday: run 14+ km
monday: lift
tuesday: run 10-12 km
wednesday: run 10-12 km
thursday: run 10-12 km
friday: rest
saturday: run tempo/VO2 max/speed x 6-8 km

thanks. was too quad dominant back then. i'd only high bar squat twice a week with oly shoes, no deadlifts or posterior chain work. it got to the point where i couldnt even jump in high top shoes cause they were inhibiting my dorsiflexion. and yea, that is actual proof of my deadlifts paying off lol. gonna check back and see what my broad jump was when i last posted it and test it again. definitely think it'll be improved.

just filmed some off the dribble comparisons today. pretty casual, but i surprised myself with how cleanly i can dunk right handed. still fun to dunk off the dribble, but mostly gonna stay with lobbing.

Saturday:
Deadlifts 3x6 235 lbs

am starting to think that deadlifting twice a week and dunking as much as i do is gonna be too fatiguing. i last deadlifted on saturday, dunked on saturday and sunday, had a whole day of rest yesterday but i still woke up today feeling like crap. i'm definitely gonna go overboard if i keep this up, so i think i have 2 choices:

1) keep deadlifting twice a week, but cut down to around 2 dunk sessions a week. bulk up a bit and try to pack on some weight as well as muscle.

2)cut down deadlifting to once a week, or maybe even not deadlift a week where i'm feeling bad. keep jumping/dunking whenever i can, possibly 4/5 times a week. eat enough.

i'd enjoy option 2 more cause i enjoy dunking just that much lol. i dont have much of an appetite too, i'm around 150 lbs and just maintaining that is already a bit of a chore. option 1 would potentially be more beneficial to me though?

goal is to jump higher without reinjuring my knee. so in the kinetic chain, gotta keep working on hips and ankles while foam rolling and stretching the quads for the knees.

hmm, a weird sensation here and there, not sure if its pain, but theres something thats there. scar tissue perhaps? or maybe i still have tendinosis. it pops/clicks when i extend it. i've actually been "popping" it often for like almost a year now. if i sit down for too long or really just lay down and sleep and wake up, there'll be a build up and i'll extend my leg in a certain way and itll make big pop/click and it goes away. when im foam rolling my left quad too itll also click whenever i curl/flex my leg.

went to the gym and tried on my kobe 9 elite high's and went for some rim grabs and the shoes didn't bother me in anyway. these shoes are high tops that go as high as boxing shoes, and i had them laced all the way up, so its a good sign that i don't need lots of dorsiflexion to be able to jump high.

Yess!! I did it! Kids took up my court with the 9'8 rim, went on a court with a 10 and just shot around, went to hang on the rim a few times, then decided why the hell not, and threw up some lobs. Did a few clean dunks. The rest were either misses or were "threading the needle". Really happy though, I'm glad I spent some time lobbing on lower rims cause my lobs are pretty spot on now. It's kinda like shooting really.

Wednesday: deadlifts with 255 lbs. 8,6,6.

got in more 10 ft dunks on friday at the gym. tried some 10 ft dunks at home today though, but couldn't get it done. not jumping high enough here, probably not enough space. i start my approach at the 3 point line at the gym now, so i definitely think i'm more comfortable with a longer approach now.
