This was an experiment that started 3 months ago and is continually on the back of my mind. I’ve hacked away at it haphazardly but it’s been fun feeling that burn in my legs that I haven’t had in years. As a result, my first step is a bit quicker and my game time endurance is a better. But still no dunk.
In the process, I found that it’ll stress the weakest part of my body. Whether it’s a weak core (yup), less than strong knees (1 surgically repaired), or weak ankles (yup and yup), I found that I was hitting a plateau until these areas were addressed and working properly together. It probably doesn’t do any good to jump on shaky objects either (video below).
One day I’ll proudly be able to capture and post about a legitamite dunk. Until then…the quest continues.
yes, it’s not a true vertical test…i didn’t have a chance to gather final metrics, I’ll do that as soon as I’m back from HK!
