kinda sucks how strong quadriceps are so beneficial to two foot jumping but here i am stuck with an achy/clicky left quad tendon.

i forget.. but have you seen a PT? get that ish checked out if you can.. this has been going on for a long time.. and the clickyness symptom sounds annoying - tendon could definitely be jacked up.

get it checked!

yea i've seen two PT's. i've been following the first's advice pretty much, basically told me to deadlift to increase strength in glutes/hamstrings and neglect quads and stretch/foam roll them. yea, i'm gonna get an MRI on it soon to figure out what's exactly wrong wtih it lol.

still doing plenty of 10'2 touches off 1 step, both plants. it seems like i can't get up without a longer penultimate step now though, so i'm sure the deadlifts i've been doing have been paying off. quads don't get sore much anymore.

interesting how i prefer using RL to dunk but prefer using LR to jump up and touch things lol. still touching 10'2 off one  step here. snowed out outside and haven't been to the gym in a while. guess i'm stuck with 1 and 2 step approaches for now. i have another thing thats set up at 10'6, gonna be pretty sick if i can touch that off 2 steps.

this I do not understand..............  :ninja:

do you reach up with a different hand? or same hand? for dunking: LR with L-hand seems better than LR with R-hand... similar to RL with L-hand being better than RL with R-hand.

I could never do it though.. defaulted to jumping max and dunking the same exact way.

i use my right hand for both. yea, i kinda feel like LR with the right hand allows me to go more straight up whereas i'm jumping more forward off of RL.

In Hong Kong right now and am pretty sure they set their rims here at 3 meters instead of 10 ft, so they'd be 9'10. Have been off with my training, so can't land any dunks this trip. gonna be back to training once I'm back home though. Next time I'm back will hopefully be able to land some dunks during pickup games lol

still trying to increase the range for my 3 pointers too. lower body wise, seems like glutes are very important for shooting.

i see. i dont think it even matters if youre bad, that there is more evidence that hips are important since it helps you lol. but yea, gonna keep deadlifting.

been working on my game a lot lately, been putting up lots of shots. a main long term goal is to get that 40 inch vert though, and i'll be getting it off my LR plant. secondary goal is to increase my 1 foot jump enough to where i can dunk 1 handed off the dribble, but am not gonna be having jump sessions off 1 foot for until like the summer of '18 or '19. i feel like if i continue planting LR and strengthening glutes and hamstrings that it'll carry over to 1 foot though.

seems like continuing to plant LR gives carryover to left foot one foot and RL. if i only purely went off RL though, it wouldn't give anything to my left foot though

note for LR dunks off the dribble: you're always going to be loading the ball up on the left side of your body. even for right handed dunks, the ball is still loaded up on the left side when you're planting.
