    I wouldn't wear them for basketball--not a ton of ankle support. Why not just get some dunks or something?

    Honestly I was never a fan of playing basketball in Dunks, as absurd as that sounds.

    nah dunks are bad. because the court feels like shit with them.

    just get some cheap sub $100 nike or adidas @ your local footlocker or some.

    although multi purpose and basketball shoes dont really go together.

    When I played basketball I just bought whatever high tops looked cool and my mum would pay for. Only played when I was 14 though, it'd be cool to play again now I can dunk.

    How long do you guys wait after working out a muscle to work it again?

    Is the muscle 'ready' to be worked out after it stops being sore? I've been waiting a week on average before working them out again, but I'm wondering if I can work them every 3-4 days instead.

    I've made progress squatting 6 days a week and squatting 1 day a week. It depends on the intensity and how well you're conditioned to your training. Currently I do each muscle group twice a week.

    Gotcha, thanks.

    I'm sure with googling I can find the right answer, but how long does it take for a muscle to repair its microtears after a workout? 2-3 nights' worth of rest? Or, again, is it dependent on the person and their workout?

    Depends on how much you tear it up, how much you sleep, how much you eat and how adapted you are to your training. When I was squatting 6 days a week i'd only do like 5-10x2 with 85% of my max, which isn't particularly hard to do and I was sleeping and eating fuck loads. I'm only squatting twice a week now so each session is much more intense, higher volume, working up to a higher percentage of my max and then lots of assistance work. I train with my dad sometimes and he can't train the same way because he can't recover from it fast enough so that depends on the person.

    I switch between upper and lower that target generally the same muscle groups, so every Monday/Friday I'll work the same groups generally. I also work to failure on most lifts as I'm doing post-failure training.

    I wouldn't worry about overtraining at 3-4 days, if you're asking this question then you're not going to overtrain at 3-4 days.

    I had a fuji-esque experience the other day. I was out eating wings and watching the game when I had a spontaneous and somewhat explosive nosebleed come on mid-meal. Deffo got some blood on my wings, but I still had like 7 left and they were damn good so I wiped them off and ate them anyway. Couldnt salvage the ranch dressing though.

    I did it for the gainzz~

    general consensus is that muscles need a good 48 hrs to fully recover from a session. YMMV.

    don't worry, overtraining happens only to like 1% of the population.
