Instead of preacher curls (which are focused more on isolated bicep hypertrophy) why don't you focus on PENDLAY ROWS and T-Bar Rows. These incorporate biceps as well but they are pretty much the totality of your pulling power... YOu see a dude grab a reb and you wanna wrestle it out of their arms.. you are goign to USE UR BACK to pull that sh!t.

Shoulder shrugs are absolutely worthless. Shoulder raisers are almost worthless. Cable bicep curls suck too. Shoulder pressers with DB's controlled slowly are awesome. I'd suggest skipping out on the first 3 exercises I just listed and do WEIGHTED CHINS and UPper Clean + Presses. If you really want your triceps to have that pushing strength, and that fluidity to extend your range then do CLOSE-GRIP BENCH PRESS, CALIFORNIA PRESSES, and SKULLCRUSHERS.

For chest, you got your sh!t down. One thing I learned (From ced lol) was that finger pushups are awesome for grip strenght and forearm strength which are INTEGRAL in all facets of basketball. Pull-ups and weighted pull-ups are flat out superior to lat pull downs. Invest in those. Don't see the purpose of back extensions if you're really busting your azz doing Deadlifts. Rows are great... the more you row the less you are prone to any rotator cuf injury. Flies are more of a pretty boy exercise.. but keep that sh!t up for aesthetics I suppose.. they don't serve a purpsoe on the basketball court.

Your plyometrics are fantastic.. but step-ups.. Really? Why? Deadlift's are good ramp that sh!t up. Do singles if you have to, and once a week.

Good-mornings, Bulgarian Split Squats (easy on the knees/lighter weight), Anderson Front Squats, Reverse HYperextensions, and Glute Ham Raises are FAR superior exercises to step ups in putting on azz/ham/quad mass, agility, explosiveness, speed, and power. Period.

You are a beast OJ and improving no doubt, but here's just some tips for cutting out trash that won't reap too many benefits, and replacing it with great functional exercises.

uh thanks for all that info. but some of those i do. i just didn't list it which is why i said ' etc' such as t-row, bugarian split squats, front squats, and skull crushers.

to sum it up i do 4 bicep exercises, 4 tricep exercises, 4 shoulder exercises on arm day. 4 chest exercises, and 4 exercises for chest/back. then leg day 4 exercises for leg daay.

but i see what you mean, by cut out the garbage exercise and emphasis the good ones.

No its physically impossible to do that everyday, unless your taken pretty strong supplements, that allows you to recover like a robot. those were just my long days, the days where all my workouts i do overlap.

i lift 3-4 times a week
explosive training 2-3 times a week.
some sort of basketball something everyday though pretty much.

and i do other shyt also like hand eye coordination exercises, watch film etc. i shoot about 97% from the Ft line now when i practice. millwad to put that perspective back when i was younger the liloj you remember, it was like 67% percentish if i had to ball park it. like an average high school bball player shooting fts.

1. He posts on ISH.

2. Some people view "competitively" differently. Like community college or D3...eh that's a stretch. Wouldn't really call a low level like that "competitive."

3. He said he went to USC at some point during his ISH career. Pretty sure he doesn't play on the basketball team. If he does, sweet.

I go to a lot of D3 games. The best D3 players are just as good as some of the D1 guys I know who play at low D1 mid-majors. I know players at D1 schools Wagner U and Monmouth U and have seen D3 guys just as good so yeah, can't discredit D3 ball.

I seen that guy hit 9/13 threes in a game, little brothers/sisters of the other team's players were getting his autograph

Pretty much. I played D3 and have friends playing overseas right now in various leagues. I also know people from JC that transferred D1 and are playing overseas(one was invited to multiple draft camps). His whole entire squad went D1, they just didn't get competitive before they transferred.

I will say this about lilOJ...he seems to place too much significance of the work he puts in, like no one else is doing it. His workouts sounds very NORMAL.

it is just stuff like this that kinda makes me laugh. But more power to ya. I hope you can walk on to the USC team. Just make sure you keep your academics up(not saying that you aren't doing it now) .

is it really though? has he ever played high school or colllege. Sounds like a summer league guy to me. And there are very few summer leagues that are like the real thing basketball wise. talent maybe higher in some summer leagues but the game is different.

Since when did a quick glance at someone reveal their entire character and corresponding capabilities? But then again we're dealing with, by all means, the most racist huamn being. Yep, you heard it here again. IT's not whites, blacks, latinos, or eskimos who hate others the most. It has, was, and will always be a sect of Asians who perceived others as barbarians.

You are even worse than Gobb. You're an underachieving nitwit little f*cking small-d!cked basturd who's a disgrace. Go fvcking rebel against your parents and attempt to be accepted by a diff community. WHat's sad is that Rezznor and Jet are up here providing FANTASTIC role models for the entire AZN community, but somehow, someway you done fukkin skipped over all the sh!t needed to become a respectable man. How could you do that you shortsighted bastard? You are the MISCENEGATED EMBODIMENT of the American loser that plagues the boards these days. I hate to reiterate Starface's consistent astute criticisms, but laziness, stupidity, worthlessness, devoid of masculinity, lackadaisal, nincompoope. These and more apply to your faggot azz.

I'm still baffled at how you think you are worthy of the life bestowed upon you. Friggin jacking off your skinny widdle weiner. Do your socks a favor and KEEP YOUR SEED OUTTA IT! Nobody wants your baby batter until you prove that you're a real man and not just a pretender. N.O.B.O.D.Y! Not the sink, not the toilet, not the lowliest of girls, and certainly not your moms after picking that stuff up at the bottom of the laundry stack. Sticky stuckey.

You come here and I see your worthelss avatar and I pray that I see something worthwhile coming from your mouth but its just lifeless negativity. The type of person to go "meh" over and over again.

I want your soul, motherfukker. I wanna take you and transform you into a beast. Please allow me to guide you on the path of greatness? I bid you adieu!


Take notes people:

This is the real young buck that has the e-bility to de-throne the LOJ. He mega i-LL ... please believe
