    Ok, i have finalized my program for my season. It is split into Phases, which represent significant timelines throughout the season.

    Each phase has macro-cycles built within it, each of which will focus on different things. My macro-cycles will dominantly be ecentric-isometric-concentric focused, ranging from 2 to 4 weeks in length) See the attachemnt for more details

    I am continuing with lifting twice a week, aas in the pre-season, but I have built in more recovery session, removed any training such as hill sprints, agility work, and have reduced my skill training to 1 day a week outside of games and pickup bball.

    If your interested, have a look aover the excel spread sheet. Feel free to drop some feedback

    A big thanks to krakkers for a ton of help on this. He was my go-to for advice, opinions and knowledge.

    Today was day 1 of my "per-season" phase.

    Update

    Last nights game was good. We played a pretty bad team and won by bout 23points. We should of killed them but the flow of the game wasnt really in our favor. We played down to the competation a few times, which is something we need to work on. Personally, i only had 9 points. Missed 3 free throws, which i should be hitting (2/5 from the line). Didnt get a whole ton of minutes, which is fine when were winning by 20+points.

    Here is todays lift (that was supposed to be on monday)

    Warmup
    foam roller
    Mobility drills

    Front Squats bar, 105lbs, 125lbs, 145lbs
    Jumprope 4 sets

    Box squats, 185lbs, 4 sets of 4 reps. Quick down, touch and explode.
    Contrast with seated box jumps (w 8lb medicine ball) 4 sets of 4 reps. Focus was on exploding out of the hole.

    Heavy bench, contrasted with 4 explosive pushups 4 reg pushups. 185lbX4, 205X4, 225X4, 230X3(fail last rep; spotter)

    Kettlebell swings, 32lb kettlebell. 3 sets of 6 reps
    bodyweight pullups 7reps, 6, 6 (negative rep on last rep of each set)

    Battlerope finisher. 3 sets of as long and hard as possible, usually 30-45seconds.

    Static stretch

    Good workout. Using a new pre-workout and drinking my purple wrath intra workout. I liked it, seemed to help with the energy level a bit.
    Was very tight to start (from ball last night + less than 8 hours of sleep) but once i got going on the box squats i felt great.

    Going to do some mobility work and stretching today sometime, prob in the afternoon

    I never posted Fridays lift. Had a busy day. Here is the jist of it

    I have been doing a lot more mobility work pre and post workout, as well as in the evenings and i have noticed big difference. Its only been a week but the changes are fairly immediate. Anyway, i have been focusing on opening up my hips more, allowing for (1) greater depth on my squat and (2) more importantly, less tightness in my hips during the day and when i am playing ball.

    I achieved a new PR for depth on both a front squat (nearly ass touching ground) and back squat (deeper than before but not as deep as the front squat). So, my squats were feeling awesome so instead of doing 5x5 deadlifts (as i was suppose to) i did 5x5 squats at 225lbs. Not heavy, but i was focusing on exploding out of the hole and going as deep as possible with very good technique. The rest of my lift was typical Friday lift.

    Ok, here is todays (mondays) lift.

    Warmup
    foam roll
    mobility work

    warmup lifts
    front squats bar, 95lbs, 135lbs, 185lbs

    Anderson Squats, contrasted with 4 sets of 4 rep seated box jumps (holding a 15lb sandbag)
    185lbsx4, 195lbsx4, 200x4 200x4 (Felt AWESOME; this mobility work is doing wonders form my squat)

    Heavy bench press, contrasted with 4 explosive pushups and 4 reg pushups
    135lb(warmup)x6 190x4 215x4 225x4 230x4(spotter;assisted)

    Kettlebell swings, 3 sets of 6 reps. 32lb kettlebell
    Bodyweight pullups 7reps, 6reps, 6reps (with negative last rep on each set)

    Static stretch

    Felt great! Pickup ball tonight; this weeks league game is moved to tuesday
    Estimated 1Rep Max at ~204lbs

    Squat 370lb (1.71xBW)
    Deadlift 470lb (2.30xBW)

    UPDATE

    So, today i receiver the results of my MRI back. Here is what the doc said in a nutshell

    I have 3 things going on
    1) A bone fragement, which they classififed as "stable" but will remove via scope.
    2) A small piece of torn cartilage within the ankle join, which they will remove via scope and
    3) 2 partially, and 1 FULLY torn ligaments on the outside of my ankle. Waiting on an appointment with a specialist. I believe they will want to stitch them back together.

    Im not sure what to think. I dont quite understand how my doctor didnt suspect that i have some torn ligaments before now, nor do i understand why i dont have any pain and have not noticed any ankle instability. Perhaps im just use to it? Its been over a year since i injured it last (which was apparently misdiagnosed)

    Anyway, im still playing the waiting game. Hope to get word on when i can get surgery soon. In the mean time, ill keep doing what im doing.

    Hey thanks a lot.
    No I am still waiting to hear from my surgeon regarding an appointment and a surgery date. It's (relatively) low on the priority scale so I don't expect to hear soon. With that being said, ankle feels just fine. I have noticed some reduction in mobility in my ankle, I guess due to scar tissue and/or inflammation? Been doing mobility work to help improve ankle ROM

    Update

    Ok, today was day 1 of my First phase of my in season program. Preseason phase is over.
    First reg season league game is tomorrow night. I plan on taping my ankle for the duration of the season.

    Speaking of injuries, I seem to have developed some minor inflammation in my non-hurt ankle. My uneducated self assessment is a minor case of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. It hurts a lot in the morning, undoubtably related to my plantar fasciitis. Foam rolling, stretching, mobility work and Warmups make a huge difference.

    I spent this morning doing work on my ankle, and rolled my plantar falsities with a lacrosse ball throughout today. Did my lift this evening 90% pain free and free of mobility restrictions. Here is today's lift

    Warmup
    Foam roller

    No problem.

    Good luck with the surgery and let us know how the pre/post op process goes. My fall/winter season is done due to a torn hip labrum. Spring season is also in jeopardy depending on how fast I heal.

    Just make sure you tape that ankle really well before each game!

    Ouch. Thats too bad man. Good luck with the rehab. HAve you looked into mobility work for the hips? It maybe pre-mature to do this, depending on how your physio is going (you are seeing a doctor i assume) but its something to atleast keep in mind. Google Mobilitywod and watch some of Kelly's videos on youtube (mobilitywod project)

    Thanks, man. I will definitely look into the Mobilitywod Project on Youtube. Right now I am limited in any mobility due to the torn hip labrum and I also have a bone spur. Both my ortho surgeon and PT have told me to just concentrate on building more strength around the hip before I go in for surgery. So pretty much just doing light cardio and PT exercises. Too much pain doing squats, dead lifts etc.

    But turning this situation into a positive, I can still do upper body lifting. I have no pain doing exercises above the waist. So I have decided to try to add 5-10 pounds of muscle during this set back. I could use the extra muscle to better absorb contact driving the lane.

    Sorry to hijack your journaling thread. I may have re-read this when I start my post-op recovery. Of course the weight will be much lower!

    Update

    Had the flu all weekend. Saturday was a struggle I played well despite feeling sick. I pretty much crashed after that until Monday morning.
    I didn't get into the weight room until late today so I had a short workout. I only did the main lifts. here is a recap of today's workout

    5min on the elliptical machine
    Warmup
    Mobility work. A lot of focus on my right ankle
    Foam roller

    Warmup lifts back squats 135x4 165x4 185x4 205x4 225x4 240x4
    Jump rope 4sets of 30sec


    Working set
    Back squats eccentric focused. 210x4 215x4 215x4 220x4
    Bench rep work 195x8 195x8 195x7

    That was it. Stretched out went home and slept. Woke up feeling much better. I have a game tonight, and the ankle has felt very good since I workout. Let's see how it holds up tonight

    Tomorrow is a mobility and cardio workout.

    Glad to hear you are feeling better. Always sucks to have a cold/flu and try to play.

    Out of curiosity, how much fluid do you drink before, during and after a game? In my last few games before my injury, I found myself drinking a lot more during a game. It seemed like I doubled the amount of water/Gatorade, even though I followed my usual fluid routine before/after a game.

    In general i am drinking a lot of water through the day, every day. I cant put an exact number to it, but i'd say during an 8hr day at work i typically go through my 1000ml bottle 3 times, plus 1 L at lunch. Before my workouts in the am, i try to drink 1L when i wake up, i have milk at breakfast + a pre-workout so that prob another 500ml.

    At the gym i say i drink 2L during my workout plus a 500ml shake afterwords
    During basketball i try to drink as much fluids as possible. Typically, i am on the floor more than i am on the bench so during my saturday pratices i tend to get a bit dehydrated. but during my league games i tend do do an excellent job drinking Gatorade+amino acids+water

    At night i drink a few cups of herbal tea often, and prob another 1L of water.

    so, that sounds like a lot. which it is. Because hydration is important.
    Oh, also, i keep water next to my bed so that, in the event that i wake up during the night, i can drink water.

    Update

    So, i've been experiementing with self-treating my tibial tendonitis. So far, here is what i have found

    Activity (walking, ellipitical etc) helps to alleviate pain/stifness. Prolonged Immobility tends to increase it when i try to walk on it.
    Foam rolling the Calf muscles helps somewhat, but not a huge amount.
    Rolling the fascia on the btm of my foot with a lacross ball helps a LOT. Rolling along the tendon is painful and im not sure if its helping
    Stretching 3X30sec helps more than anything. I am going to be disciplined and stretch it 3x day
    Ice helps with any inflammation. I dont have any visual swelling, but im sure there is some.
    and as always, staying hydrated is important.

    Thanks for providing that info.

    Usually for me on non-game days, I will drink about 1 gallon of water/Gatorade. On game days I was up to nearly 2 gallons, but as I mentioned before, I seemed to have gone over 2 gallons of fluids in my last few game days.
