The chiro is a beast himself. I have no doubt he can get into any adhesion if he needs to. He was saying that his 11 years of ART have really taught him more finesse and like in most things, that is where the real skill comes from.

He got silver in wrestling at 1992 olympics I believe. I think his silver medal may have just been hanging out on his desk. Cha maybe can confirm. I dno, kind of a fancy paperweight lol.

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

Thanks Cha. I like the cheerleading on the last Press rep. I need to edit out just that audio sample and play it when I'm at my gym .

Also, I guess I can tell him about my squat knee cave, old ankle injuries, and a bunch of other stuff. I dno, 1/2 of the time I was there he took notes on the things wrong with me. But I guess I can just keep saying things. Like my forearms are all messed up clearly from typing so much imo.

I'm going to ask him more about his diagnosis too. I do think ART will help from everything you've said, but seeing a chiro so much is damn expensive but for some reason I don't care right now so it's good to take advantage of my loose wallet atm.

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

I go back Thursday. He said for the first 6 sessions I should double up and see him twice a week. Which I guess makes sense. That or the Vikings haven't started real training camp yet and he needs to fill his schedule (that was a joke, not just a cynical remark).

My insurance helps pay for it but not as much as I assumed. But, meh, like I said, I'm feeling baller for some reason. Maybe b/c a year ago I thought my leg was F'd forever and my Dr. said "well, some people just can't run a few miles every day." Which sounded like BS to me given my MRI was super clean.

Its really sad that these quack MDs who have no clue get fully paid by insurance and guys like Dr K who actually fix what's wrong with people struggle to get paid at all by insurance.

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

Yeah. I do think my primary Dr. is pretty sharp for a primary care guy though. He's the only one of my last 4 who had me get a CT scan that discovered appendicitis that I had FOR OVER 2 YEARS. So he got points there. Also, he didn't push hard that I may not be able to run two days in a row, he just probably doesn't have too much faith in PTs who can rehab people to normalcy but not into athletic pursuits very well (I had a couple of PTs give me stretches/lifty things that didn't seem to help my leg much, but likely didn't make it worse).

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

I shouldn't call them quacks because most of them are much smarter than I am. They just aren't taught about trigger points in medical school and are too closed minded & skeptical of treatments that haven't been proven by sample sizes of under 800 bazillion. The thing that's really sad about that is that trigger points are the cause of a lot of joint problems, which end in people being cripples and/or getting unnecessary major surgeries that make things worse in a lot of cases.

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

I didn't do **** yesterday and today I think I may just do rolling stuff. Resting up to really hit my lifts with good form hard tomorrow.

Update on ART work done: well, based on my super scientific, super controlled study of trying to remember what my bicep/neck/leg felt like before ART and today I can report the following extremely precise and accurate results:

My bicep seems WAY better, however, I did notice some mild twitching. It's still not completely right but poking around in the muscles is way less painful and such.

My neck feels looser today and I didn't wake up with it kind of in pain or stiff or w/e as I normally do. It still has issues surrounding it for sure and is cracking. But without commenting on ART specifically, I'd classify today as one of the best random days of how my neck feels but I wouldn't say anything earth-shattering has changed.

My leg feels the same. I don't really feel any issues in my leg unless I try to run for a long distance, or am doing the quad activation stretch I do. I'm most concerned the ART work won't really fix my leg issue but I am hoping and think there is definitely a solid chance. The other stuff I have no doubt he will be able to help a ton with.

How many games do you end up in where all your teammates wanna do is run down and jack up 3 pointers?

My answer to this is going to be the same to "how many 5 year olds": All of them. Lol.

The way my rec team is built currently is there are a couple of 3 point chuckers who get the ball up a bunch and then our best player who can drive really well to the hole but isn't great at using this to create for someone else. One of our 3 point shooters can post up but he has stamina issues imo and is less effective after a few minutes out there.

When I play pickup I'd say pretty much close to 100% it's all about running down the court and dribbling a bunch on the perimeter before going up with a shot. This is one reason I basically feel trying to get better at 3s is just a huge waste of my time. It's what everyone else seems to want to do so F it, I just body up down low or throw myself around at the perimeter and make them go in front of the 3 point line. It's also why I'm an extremely valuable teammate (as long as the guys I play with are somewhat close to my skill level) but no one probably realizes it. I'm the one getting all of the rebounds, loose balls, and forcing higher & shots due to backpicks and swinging the ball to the other side if I'm in the pivot.

Yeah. Well you're the reason I basically am making myself okay with paying for these sessions, lol. If I didn't know you, even if I studied up on ART, I'm sure I'd think it wasn't worth it and just burning hundos. And I'd just wait until things were super bad before investing this much money in my body in this way.

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

Interesting. I def think there are good times for 3s, but I think it's just weak to run it down and chuck it up without any sense of offense.

I also found it really interesting to watch how my team (of 5) yesterday slowly found out what each of our roles were. Like when you realize how money is someone is at rebounding, but awful at putting it in. Then you realize who is great at driving the lane so you get the ball to them in the good spots.

I really wanna get into better shape and keep learning about the game and get into some kinda league because I think I would be good at running a team and make everyone better. Kinda like a point guard minus the skillz. Lulz.

I'm glad I picked up this sweet new hobby

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

I would love playing with you. I always am trying to flow in a way that's better for my team. The one thing that's frustrating about my rec team, is unlike pickup, you play teams that already have an identity, and some even clearly practice, have some quasi set plays, etc.

My rec team basically has no real identity probably b/c I was the newest team member. I've had a very hard time trying to figure out how to help b/c we run such a halting offense that stops including motion after everyone else gets tired. Even after 3 seasons (our seasons are 6 games + 1-2 playoff games) with them I still have poor feel for when my teammates are gonna go up with it, or pass, or w/e. In p/u I usually figure it out after a game or two. Weird imo.

One exception to chucking 3s, is if I play halfcourt pickup, it's completely different. And, it's also completely different if I'm on a team with a clear big man who can get his shot off inside. He doesn't have to score every time, he just has to look like he can score every time.

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

Just links. I have no video of me playing bball. I know you are all waiting anxiously to see me "play" basketball at a "high" level. I don't have a real video camera and unless we make the championship (even then probably not) I doubt any of our games would be taped. But I do want to try and see if my g/f can spend 5 mins making a few videos with me while I'm doing drills with my camera. And I guess maybe try to tape me with my camera playing 1v1 pickup? I dno, I can't imagine that would turn out well.

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

8/10 log

Did rolling/mobility/activation. I have to say when I was doing the quad/hip flexor stretch I do, the part of my left leg that starts stinging if I do the stretch even sort of deep was in pretty good shape. Maybe from the initial ART? I'm really looking forward to my Chiro sesh tomorrow morning. I'm hoping for a ton more ART and asking more questions. LET THE HEALING BEGIN!

Box Squats:
45x5x3
60x5
90x3
120x2
150x1x5 (~45 degree)
150x1x5 (behind)
150x1x5 (side)

I'd love feedback on form. The second set felt like I wasn't too solid in my core and my upper body bent over more. The third felt a lot more solid but on all of them I had very little speed going up. Should I stay at this weight for another session (or two?) to try and get the speed up more before going to 155?

Bench
45x5x2
75x5
105x3
135x2
150x5x3

Ohhhh YEAH! I thought I did 6 on the last set but my g/f said it was 5, so it was probably 5. Still, though, the last rep went up with no doubt and issues. I mean, it was tough and not super easy/smooth, but very encouraging that I can go up in weight on bench again. I credit a more coordinated lift off to keep my setup (as my g/f is doing it now and has some practice) and a better setup in general (I'm really trying to keep my core tight).

Pullthoughs
27.5 x 10
47.5 x 10
57.5 x 10
57.5 x 10

Supersetted with front planks
5 x ~15 seconds
4 x ~15 seconds
3 x ~15 seconds
2 x ~15 seconds
1 x ~20 seconds

My g/f did:

LBBS
24x5x3
45x3
60x2
75x5x3

No knee pain or leg pain for the 2nd squat workout in a row. However, she has mentioned a bunch recently how the place she had surgery on in her knee "feels numb." My guess is that due to rolling and activation of the muscles around it, she is feeling things a lot more in those spots, which highlights the numb area on her knee, making it seem "more numb". Anyway, may ask my chiro about it briefly.

Bench
24x5x3
45x3
55x2
62.5x5x2
62.5x3

She was pretty close. But she'll have to get 62.5 next time. Very good effort and not too much laughing at all this time.

Pullthoughs
7.5 x 10
12.5 x 10
17.5 x 10
17.5 x 10

Supersetted with front planks
5 x ~15 seconds
4 x ~15 seconds
3 x ~15 seconds
2 x ~15 seconds
1 x ~20 seconds

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

Don't really know box squats, but I noticed you don't finish standing up between squat reps. A buddy if mine did the same thing, after I told him he said his back didn't feel as tired after squat sets. Injury preventive imo.

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

When you say "stand up" do you mean lock out my knees (I don't think that's what you mean) or become much more vertical? I will reread the squat part of SS but for some reason I feel like I'm not really supposed to be that vertical with any LBBS b/c you want the weight over midfoot the whole time.

Or maybe you mean my glutes are just sitting there like jelly and if I keep those clenched I'll appear to be standing up straighter?

Re: Yugo's SS and Basketball Log

Ahhh, ok. I will see how that goes. I have a feeling it may help me a bunch from what you were describing about your friend. I often feel like the weight is "crushing" me down to bend over more. It's probably b/c at higher weights I'm bent over for too long over 5 full reps.

Also, fwiw, I'm keeping my back straight throughout, he's just keeping his more vertical at the top .

Yeah your back is fine doing the actual rep, looks like you're really tightening the abs/back, good work.
