I nixed todays workout for three weeks... number one, I just found out that apparently what I thought was a groin injury has in fact been a sports hernia. With that in mind, I think its pretty hardcore I played over 2 month on it and only missed two games. Reason number two, ive got a workout with a southern Utah team today and I also have one tomorrow with a nice JC college tommorow, so I guess I can forgive myself just a little bit. Thirdly, im still sore like a mofo...
EDIT: Had a good run with the guys/players and actually I feel a bit guilty because I dont think my shot has ever been so on as it was tonight. Everything I tried early on went in, every drive I took got to the rack and fell ect. Once my wind became an issue though, I was in trouble... my team won first 5 games though.
Ill post an update after tomorrow and under this same post as an edit.

Im looking overall to increase speed, functional strength and agility and hope to add anywhere from 5-10 pounds muscle in 4 months.
When I say overall speed, I mostly mean to focus on lateral quickness as opposed to 40 dash speed (more basketball specific). Im decently strong for my age/height/weight, but im kinda bulky still and am looking to translate what I have now into a more fluid and/or "functional" strength. The 5-10 pounds of muscle should be just a goal in mind, but in all honestly im looking to get more of a slasher/swingman/hustlebunny body as opposed to a bigger bulky frame that might slow me down.
Right now im focusing on working on deficiencies (ie lower body) and gradually lose a % or two of bodyfat before I start any pylos or anything... also, I learned today that I might have to take a surgery break for an old nagging injury, so im going to have to work that in somehow.
anyways, im shut down. I went and did a college workout with the school that ive decided im going to go to for at least a year and i tore out my hernia. Im officially cripled for probably at least 3 months after I get surgery.
there goes my summer and my plans of making a difference
EDIT: Doc estimates 6 weeks downtime... better then I expected.

I maybe my last trip to the weightroom as a highschool senior today and tried to break my schools powerclean record. It was set at 295 for 215+ people. I put on 300 exactly. I got the bar navel high 7 times, and 7 times my groin wouldnt allow it when I went to catch the weight. Im having surgery soon that will require 6 weeks downtime, just enough to make sure I never break that record that ive dreamed of breaking since I was a freshman.
Im BAAAAAACK! Had surgery the 29th of May, and less then two full weeks rest the doc says I can return to pool workouts, low impact and (thankfully!) basketball court time! Even some jumprope isnt out of the question even though running is still a bad idea.
