    What makes you think playing a team sport will turn out better for you than did your earlier track-and-field experience? (BTW, I'd play real close attention to your team-coach's cutting ability)

    Because I actually I enjoy playing flag a lot and I was really good prior to my ankle injury. There are a ton of former Division 2/3 football players in the competitive flag league btw.

    Just got a 32.1" vertical with my hands on my hips. This is called the "countermovement jump test". Quarter squats seem to be working.

    Of course they work, why do you think everybody is doing them?

    It was the combination of body fat loss (22% to 17%), two weeks of quarter squats, and a one week rest period where I did no sprints or jumps. My SVJ is likely 35-36" right now...ie getting entire hand above rim without a step.

    Further reduce your protein intake; your diet is the only miscalculation that has kept you back from the life that you've dreamed of.

    lately your log has been clutter with music videos and what not.

    no the stories of inferior bros and the various HYT's . . .etc . . .
