11/6/2014 7:17:16 PM I think he does.  Watch his ball movement sometimes.  He makes a lot of extra passes.  Watch his general manerisms on the court when he's barking about positioning etc to teammates, letting them know where the help is and things like that.  His basketball IQ is a lot higher than people think it is.
11/6/2014 5:53:56 PM For sure, lightweight just feels cheap to me.  I also was not a fan of the rounded edges at all.  I'm not due for an upgrade for a few months, and I'm sure I'll get over it by then.  But I really didn't care for how it felt in my hand.  
11/6/2014 5:51:15 PM I forget what my injury is called exactly.  Socraiatic?  Sochiac or something like that.  Good news is my right leg is finally back to being the same length as my left one and I can be much more active again and start rebuilding strength.  Also don't have shooting pain in my lower back anymore.
11/6/2014 5:48:31 PM I've been saying for several years that Cousin's isn't your normal crazy player.  Deep down inside, he actually wants to be great.  His actions don't show it the way most people want him to sometimes, but unlike most guys who are crazy and just sorta float through their careers on talent, I think he really does want to be a great player.  People don't give him enough credit for how hard he's trying on defense, as well as how good of a passer he is.  I hope he continues to grow his game.
11/6/2014 1:27:47 PM This, just felt cheaper in general to me.  I came away from the store questioning whether I should just upgrade to a 5s from my 5.  Don't like the new one at all.
11/6/2014 1:26:29 PM You can have some pretty baddass fun on a 250! Anyone else shed a tear when Kiyonari couldn't race the final round of BSB?
11/6/2014 1:24:34 PM Back is finally up to around 80%.  Starting up with heavier squats and overhead lifts again.  Chiro appointment in an hour should tell me a bit more.
10/17/2014 11:15:27 AM Turning the damn thing on.  I use mine primarily for motorcycle racing.  It's always on a different mode then when I left it, or difficult to tell when it's actually on or even turn on with gloves on.  The replay has a big ass button that you can't miss and vibrates when it's pressed to record.  I know, sounds stupid, but several people I know at the track have switched from Gopro's simply due to missing footage like crazy.  Plus the Gopro it has about a dozen modes I just don't need.  I'm also the type that doesn't have a million apps on my iphone so all of this is just IMHO.   That's not even touching the fact that about every third file is corrupted no matter what cards I use.  
10/16/2014 5:51:42 PM I hope this takes off.  I absolutely hate using my Gopro and am switching to the ReplayXD just because it's got one big ass switch on the top and vibrates when it's on.  
10/16/2014 4:17:43 PM Years of basketball and quite a few rehab stints with knee injuries!  Learning how to be injury free, faster and stronger has taught me a lot.  
10/16/2014 1:17:00 PM As in how often should you be lifting?  That's actually a very complicated discussion.  Some people can lift every day of the week, others three days a week and both get the same results.  It has a lot to do with your diet, sleep patterns, and genetic traits.  I only actually lift 3 to 4 days a week, the other days are cardio/agility etc.  In the past, I've lifted as often as six days per week. I suggest you get on bodybuilding.com, drink some coffee, and pour over the thousands of threads debating that one. As far as plyo's though, no more than three times a week.  You have to understand the forces on your joints are WAY higher than lifting, because it's a sharp and explosive movement.  I remember reading that every time Barry Sanders cut/changed direction playing football, over 650 pounds of force was applied to the knee joint.  Think about that, then think about how easy it is to simply jump or cut.  I believe in Tim Grover's book he said something like no more than 300 "touches" per workout.  I'm going off memory though and probably wrong.  It's very easy to overtrain on them because you don't feel the fatigue the same way you normally would.  And you probably won't notice it until you actually tear something.   Regular weight lifting will actually help with recovery from your plyo workouts.  They really do kind of go hand in hand.  
10/16/2014 1:10:42 PM Just big boned!
10/16/2014 10:38:43 AM You should probably start noticing small differences within a couple weeks.  As far as huge gains, it's going to depend on your level of dedication.  If you are really on it, along with all of your other fitness, I would think you should be able to add several inches in 90 days or so.  It's hard for me to say really.  We all have that friend that goes to the gym every week and always looks the same because they don't really push themselves.  Try adding 2.5 percent to your lifts weekly.
10/15/2014 11:12:36 PM Don't you have a bomb threat to be calling in to the Special Olympics? Sig line is awesome though.
10/15/2014 3:51:06 PM Oh yeah, I agree.  My point was that Redbull isn't some secret formula, it's a ton of cheap crap actually.  They just market the brand better than anyone.
