sunday: 255 lb deadlifts: 6,5,5. apparently the weight of the bars at my gym vary. was a heavy 255 lbs today. the 275 lb deadlifts on sunday were a very light 275.

also am still very good off 1 or 2 steps. i actually don't jump that much higher off a full approach. have some footage of close range dribble dunks on 9'6 if anyone wants to see. not that interesting though, better for me to record some dunks on 10 ft when i can. i actually went to the gym today, but couldn't get it done. combination of me not jumping high enough and my ball losing its air.

well i finally did it. first ever 10 ft dunk at my homecourt lol. really had huge adrenaline going on today. i slammed my wrist against the rim on one dunk attempt, so i think i'm sure i'm touching atleast 10'8. maybe 10'9 max. i want to believe i'm touching 10'10, which is a 38 vertical, but i think i'd be dunking way easier if that were the case lol.

i'll try to use the other angle next time, this angle is more generous lol. and i definitely think im short armed, i get my head to the mesh pretty well, just can't put it down.

Thanks. Just takes a lot of practice and repetitions, just like working on your free throws lol.

recorded a not very clean dunk at the gym. stutter step in the approach too. finally played pickup for the first time in a while, and this was done after like 3 hours of pick up. in between though, i was actually throwing it down, dunking it cleanly. i always jump higher during pick up sessions, and really got up today. might start consistently playing pickup again, hope i don't get injured though.

 :ibjumping: sick!!

last one was really nice.. though, most of those should have gone down... if you had landed that first one ->  :wowthatwasnutswtf: would have been a hard make.

as for 10'10 .. hard to tell because of that angle.. but, you're definitely there-or-close. some of those jumps were really nice, you can see some good float.

great stuff man

thanks dude. and yea, i think now if i landed that first one it wouldve been too good lol. i actually am wondering whether that rim is set at 10. i've had it since 2005, but never dunked on it till 2014, so the rim is in good condition. that being said though, i've had cleaner dunks at the gym where i'm sure its 10. also almost landed a two hander : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etuy7C7X6JQ

ok, i don't know why, but i fly off the baseline angle. i definitely think i prefer this angle over the straight on angle now.

ya that two handed looked niiiice (it's private again though). like i mentioned on youtube, be more aggressive when you catch it.. more arm/hand speed and you'll crush that.

me too.. that's probably my favorite approach angle. it probably has alot to do with how we plant coming in from that angle.. and then in the air, it squares us up nicely with the basket.

lol my bad, unlisted again. i'll try to punch down a good 2 hander soon and have it on cam. i actually put down a good amount of dunks yesterday, put in a few 2 handers but couldn't punch it through.

i see. and yes, its my new favourite too. i just absolutely fly. from the angle i normally use, the top of the 3 point line, but a bit to the right i don't think i'm even close to putting down a 2 hander.
