FWIW i had a similar experience with preferred leg changing through jumping practice. i'm a LR planter but left-footed for kicking anything and for as long as i can remember i was more comfortable SL jumping off my right leg than my left. those things shouldn't go together, especially since i'm right-handed so layups should be more natural off my left foot. at some point in the last year or so of the dunk quest that finally became the case, left foot SL jumps were at least as natural and high as right foot jumps. that's without practicing them especially, just lots and lots of planting and layups from both sides for warm up.

point is, chris is absolutely right that practice can groove new patterns and open up new possibilities.

def agree. I am also right handed but can't kick or use the left leg for any thing. But with sprinting I was told that the left leg is the front leg if I am right handed and I have just been doing sprint starts with left leg in front and feel more comfortable but cannot jump off left leg as I always have been kicking with my right a lot and with boxing I have my right foot forward and my right hand forward even though the power hand should be behind the left jab hand. but yep as been stated practicing a lot will make it more comfortable.

That actually makes sense. Think about it, rightys usually jump off their left leg. That leg is also the "plant" leg for a right footed kick. Basically your "dominant" leg should (read: usually) be the opposite of your dominant hand. So in sprints it makes sense to push off that leg first. It's more "explosive/strong". It sounds like not jumping off your left for SLRVJ is simply a progressively natural occurrence for you since in other ways you use it as a right handed person normally would. If I'm reading this correctly.

- 2 hours jump rope (+30 min?) :personal-record:
- most i probably did when boxing was 1.5 hr .. and recently did 1.5 hr again. so 2 hr is a big PR.
- alot of messups towards the end, was rough, but still kept getting back on it.

feel so good today.. no sign of injury. that's most likely not the case, but the illusion of feeling healthy, is great.

turn sound on if you want to hear how fast my speed rope spins.. it's crazy.



after my 2 hour jump rope session, other than right ankle being a little achy felt amazing all day. got sunburned tho.

- lots of icing, hamstring/glute and back.


diet:
- ate light but good
- a whole half gallon of grape fruit juice after the jump rope session....... HEH

10:55 AM: speed rope: 2hr ::: 120 min x ~140 SPM = ~17,000 turns /// last 20 minutes was brutal
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2220468119

Didn't train at all last week and didn't do hapkido on Saturday. Played ball yesterday and I was ok but just tired and lethargic. No legs at all. That was our last game of the regular season and we beat the top team by 15. Semi final this week and we should make the granny the following week.

Back into training tonight as I'm feeling a lot better but will still take it pretty easy this week. Bloody flu. Didn't expect it to be this bad.
