Day 30 of 90:) Barefoot, jump training, Video of Spinach Smoothie!!
Another very good and busy day, meetings in the am, plyo leg workout for dunking:), quick spinach smoothie (above), then shot the last leg of our new JGXT dvd "Training the Trainers" which went really well, filmed it with Jessica Rucker my Monkey Bar Gym Madison head trainer, Greg Metzler our new MBG COO and Dusty Mattison our MBG Madison Manager...they all did a great job and the DVD turned out great!!:)
MBG 1 restoration: Did my favorite two poses, front warrior and supine bridge for 3 sets of 30 seconds each, love doing these two to open the hips and re-align the feet and legs.
MBG 2 training: Today was my first day of doing vertical jumps to the rim:
Power Jumper 2/1/none x R8 (resistance level Green, is 8th of 10 levels...it's heavy:) for sets of 8
At two bands: 8 jumps to 9'5"
At one band: 8 jumps to 9'10" feel pretty good about this...only 2" from the rim resisted, this is a good first day of vertical jumping:) very happy about this:)
At no bands: as i was about to jump i felt some tension in my left knee so stopped on this one to make sure i do not over do it ... and i am happy i did because it felt good for the rest of the workout:)
MY GOALS here are to touch 10'5" plus by day 60 and 10' 9" plus by day 90...if i'm near this number by day 90 i'll definitely be high enough to dunk off two feet and i'm a one foot jumper so i'll be even higher off one foot...hope to begin my one leg jumping in the next few weeks...today was a good start for vertical jumping though:)
Power Jumper 2/1/none x R8
At two bands: 6 jumps 45'10" (improved over a foot:)
At one band: 5 jumps to 41'2" (same as last workout)
At no bands: 5 jumps to 45' even (really happy about this as my first day of testing i only jumped 42'!!!
So this is great improvement and i feel i am right on track.
MY GOAL here is by day 60 i want to be at 46' plus and by day 90 i need to be close or at 47' plus which for sure i feel is enough for me to be dunking!!
