    I don't know the answer but I really wanted to answer "Squats".

    squats got me to the best overall shape and the biggest strength of my life.

    but the pop isn't there. i feel slow.

    game situation exercise....

    I find it's the stop-go-stop-go that wears me down when I play b-ball and ultimate. If I was training for b-ball I'd find someone to do it with, and go play some full court 1 on 1.
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

    yea. it's one of those where you have to do the thing you will do.

    i have to get some more hoops between games, that's it.

    we'll see.

    do you have access to a court?

    suicides followed directly by 30 burpees (with a tuck jump). rest. repeat 5-8 times. be sure to bring a mop for all the vomit.

    usually took me 1- 2 weeks of 2 days a week pickup for 2 hours each time to get in b-ball shape. Just for the running though, even when I was bagged I could still jump. If you're losing your pop, then I'd add some power work.

    yea, i can get to a court.

    i'm at the point where i am reevaluating my entire approach to fitness.

    suicides is a strong suggestion.

    the other thing is that i have had a constant pain in my left tibia, at the bottom half, at about the quarter point, for more than a month. and this pain feels like it's in the bone, not the muscle, and it hurts whenever i sprint or jump but i don't feel it during the game when i am running warm.

    right now i feel it when i'm walking, post game, but i don't usually feel it unless i jump or sprint.
