damn.. why havn't you lifted for 3 months??? if you are at 33.5" now, you should respond well when getting back into lifting.

4x6 depth drops from 40" is hardcore..

awesome that you started a journal..

i didnt lift coz i didnt feel like lifting in the summer! its way too hot here at summers even strong ACs aint enough.
also i came out of a serious ankle sprain so i wanted to focus more on getting the jump feeling back.
i kept doing a routine like the above every 4 days or at least once a week.

the depth drops felt surprisingly fine , heels havent touched the ground in any of them, if form breaks down ill reduce the height.

29 August 2009

Went for a dunk session to see where i am after holidays and 3 weeks of no jumping.
Feet were terribly sore from workout 2 days ago.
Dunk session was a BAD failure , couldnt even dunk 9'8''. Best jump i got was 28,5'' , without ball of course, 3 times.

Another failed dunk session.
This time feet were recovered , felt good , had my carbs and cafeine ready... and 30' before i go there it rained!  >:(
I still went but it was terribly slipery, couldnt get a decent runup.
Standing VJ was at my PR levels (26+) , running was at 31,5'' but it was rather dropstep jump than running jump.
The good thing is that i had many of those 31+ jumps , and they felt rather easy too.
As for the dunks? i had like 0/15 , they were all backriming. No surprise , i cant dropstep-dunk on 10' yet, especially on wet concrete!!! :-\

nice man.. i figure you have a few more sessions in you before you feel back to normal.. perhaps you might even be able to running & standing PR from having just done drops / bw stuff etc & not much jumping..

oh and you jumped on a slippery surface wtf..

PR's soon ;d

drops will make jumping FEEL EASY.. thats always what i've encountered.. i don't feel I muscle up as much when i do drops/depth jumps... seems like you're experiencing this also.

keep zoning in mentally because I feel you have some PR's in you from how your 29th/31 days went..

peace man!
