When it comes to working out for strength or size there is 3 main components to a good plan: Nutrition, Recovery and Exercises
Nutrition: As everyone knows your body uses protein to repair muscles, so be sure to get enough (1.5+ grams per pound of body weight). Carbs are also very important as they give you the energy to workout in the form of glycogen.
Recovery: Your body gains strength and size while you are recovering, not working out. most people don’t put much effort into their recovery, which is a huge mistake. Getting an optimal amount of sleep is very important. Make sure to have good supplementation for recovering, that includes keeping your body hydrated. Another good way to help with recovery is foam rolling or massages.
Exercises: When you are trying to gain strength as well as size it is important to use as many muscles as possible, in the form of compound exercises. Be as explosive as possible, fast on the positive portion of the exercise. Properly warm up for every exercise, to prevent joint and muscle injury.
I have started a journey to being able to dunk. I can currently grab rim on a regulation 10 ft hoop but not able to dunk. In order to achieve my goal I will be implementing several techniques.
- Self Myofascial Release
- Jumping Exercises
- Flexibility Training
My lower body is super tight, which is my main impedance in being able to jump higher.

I’ve been having really bad insomnia the past couple days. I’ve had it my whole life, but it’s been bad recently. I will be trying to completely exhaust my body around 3 hours before I am ready to go to sleep. I am just going to do an intuitive workout until I am drained.
