Yesterday I went to the gym to squat and play basketball afterwards. My squat workout was shitty. What felt heavy was really light. Need to work on form. Played basketball for 20 minutes afterwards.
Today I wake up, eat, watch the Heat vs Bulls and get pumped to play some ball. I played for 1hr 30mins straight. It got to the point where I stayed in the backcourt every few plays because my quads were burning.
When we finally lost, I decided to hit the weights. My previous dip 5RM, last week, was 60 lbs. My 3RM was 90 lbs about 3 months ago.
Did some BW dips, then some pullups. Felt ok, so I decided to continue working out. Got my belt + chains, went to dip stand, loaded 45 lbs did 5 easy reps.
I continue increasing +10lbs x 5reps and got to 85lbs x 5reps. Fast too. This is the best workout I’ve ever had. My strength shot up big time out of nowhere. And this was after playing 1hr30mins STRAIGHT of serious basketball.
Anybody else experience something like this?
