Basketball player (want to go very far)-Point Guard
Pretty sure I'm an "Easy-Hardgainer" from CT's article: ( http://www.tmuscle.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/training_for_easyhard_gainers ) so I can't use shit genetics as an excuse or anything like that as I can improve quickly if I do everything perfectly.
Straight from his conclusion:
"Being an easy-hard gainer is both a blessing and a curse. Provided that you do everything right, you can actually progress more and faster than almost anybody else when it comes to strength, speed, power and muscle mass. However, you have the burden to do everything right all the time. If you fail to do so, you'll also regress faster than everybody else!
Your ultimate progress is limited only by how structured and disciplined you are. If you truly wish to become a great athlete or have a fantastic body, it's really yours to take. And you can get it quite easily. But deviate from the road one bit and you might get lost in the woods and end up nowhere... fast!"
Off-season now, had a log @ theverticalsummit.com ( http://theverticalsummit.com/viewtopic.php?t=3141&start=120 ) but I figured the people here would be more knowledgeable about strength which is my focus so I can become more explosive and bang people out of my way off the dribble. I train twice a week with my team (Monday/Thursday), with skillwork on Tuesdays and Fridays right now and probably add in another day eventually. School's over in 2 weeks, will start RFD work (Truth About Quickness Insider System by Alex Maroko/Kelly Baggett) then.
I had tendonitis since last July and I think it turned into Chrondomalacia (Runner's knee?) or Arthritis cause I hear cracks which is my cartilage (hopin it's the former) so I'm taking Glucosamine and doing some physiotherapy-type leg exercises along with stretching, foamrolling and BW peterson step-ups at home to make my knees feel better. Also, squatting make them feel amazing.
My weaknesses right now are not sleeping enough (need like 10 hours but discipline is lackin) and not eating enough on weekends. Will be fixed.

Worked up to
4 w/ 135lbs
2 w/ 145lbs (PR)
Worked up to
2x4 w/ 205lbs (semi-PR I guess, did only one set of 4 @ 205lbs last time)
2x3 w/ 95lbs
3 w/ 105lbs
3 w/ 115lbs
2x3 w/ 125lbs (tech is getting better, less pressure on wrists)
14, 7, 6
Probably the hot weather coupled with me downing a shake while my stomach still feeling a little full after the workout made me puke it out, but I had one when I got home so no loss.
