What kind of spikes are you wearing?

If it's a legit short distance sprint spikes with a plate platform...it's why your tired in the spikes. Running in spikes (sprinting) is different than with flats.

This is it.


 :trolldance:
got it from a friend who used it for 5 times only.
cheapest one in the series.
at about. 25 USD   LOL face

I don't think anyone on the board is doing speed training at the moment but there's going to be a stream about speed training from some top quality coaches, Boo and Jonas Dodoo are the ones that I know are really top notch. I have heard of a few of the rest of them but it looks like a good mix. Definitely mark the date and time for this free stream.

Played the social netball game last night which in itself wasn't that exciting. Did some jumps after the game though which were pretty good though. Did some SL running dunks with a netball and was easily getting my wrist to the rim. This puts my SLVJ at about 29-30" which is very surprising given the last of training/jumping in recent times. Also makes me think I can get this back up a few inches without too much additional effort (get more jumps in/get more strength in).

You can do dunks with a 30" SL jump?? a netball is like a soccer ball, right? i remember we have the same standing reach and i'm maybe an inch short of dunking with 2-hand grip off 1 leg. interesting how both your and adarq's sl jumps didn't drop off without specific training for it. 38" seems kind of a stretch to me, how would you go about doing that?

for me, probably has to do with all of the SL jumps i've done in my life (via basketball/layups, I was very dedicated from age ~12 to ~22), and how light I am. what's funny though is, my L-SLRVJ is higher now (28 or so probably) without specifically training for it, than when I was say - a high schooler (26 or so), playing basketball every day etc. So I learned & fine tuned those motor patterns back then, but just became stronger later on (during dunk training, and retaining some level of strength afterwards). I think once you teach yourself how to get "very strong" (really pushing your limits), that stuff doesn't just disappear. The mindset/neurological aspect of it remains.

I probably could get to ~30" after a few weeks, maybe ~32" after a few months. 35-37" would take a long time though. Not sure what my L-SLRVJ was at the end of my dunk phase, but it was probably around 37" max, 34-35" avg, which had me landing some solid single leg dunks. Loved the speed aspect of L-SLRVJ, that's why I got addicted to it towards the end. Enjoyed that more than DLRVJ where I felt limited speed-wise.

I think I'm the same. 30+ years of SL jumping for basketball might just have something to do with it.

Haha yes the speed aspect is something I never came to grips with. I still remember Raptor and his insane speed during the approach. If I could get to that without collapsing I'm sure I could add a bit there too.

Also they dont seem to agree with me (LBSS et al) but i think it's because they used light weights which need more chronic use to show results. But when i saw the potentiating benefit i was using like a 20kg vest at 75kg. That shit worked like magic for potentiating. I don't really get much if any potentiating benefit from 10kg though :/ Still im not going to get another vest, i went OTT with 20kg last time and it was bad news.

I remember the discussion with T0ddday about it. Like I said I might use it as a last resort but most likely not.

dunk with 25"?? whaa. i have to get my wrist a few inches over the rim to get a clean dunk, with a 8'2" standing reach that's like a 31"-32" vert to dunk. but then i cant palm the ball and all my bball dunks are 2 handers.

I've posted this here before but in most of the dunks I'm barely getting to wrist height above the rim. Especially the two hander. The ball I'm using here is heavy AF but is super grippy which made it a lot easier.

Peaking might get you there. Weight vest seems to work well for that in addition to all the other tricks

I have a weights vest actually. Up to 15kgs. Wouldn't be able to wear it under my suit during the day though haha.

I dont know if i ever got much out of wearing it all day myself but that's how LBSS and toddday used it. I found if i wear it as potentiating during warmups THEN take it off, now suddenly i can jump higher, yes, but what if foudn was my legs/feet move quicker and i could actually do a dunk at game speed (pickup level defence tho).

Yeah good point. I don't see myself ever just wearing it around but I might do it just prior to jumps to see what effect it has.
