^^ nice.

thx. haven't been active, but i've always been working on my jump whenever i can.


got in a bunch of jumps today, mainly off RL and 1 foot right leg. did a lot of practice with my left hand. hopefully can be able to be ambidextrous eventually.

no more jumping off right leg until i start deadlifting again and consistently stretch out my right quad to correct the quad dominance  :(

wondering if i should give up always trying to maintain being above 150 lbs and just be super skinny again. also wondering if i should concentrate on going off 1 foot if i do too, given that 1 foot jumping is less reliant on having good muscle mass

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.
